I am a clinical mental health professional located in the Los Angeles area. I work in-person as well as on zoom. I am a PhD candidate and mother of four (4) children. I also have had the distinct priviledge of developing training programs that bring inclusion within my community. I am a research presenter with the University of Phoenix where I proposed research on working with high-risk clients with mood disorders and understanding their decision-making processes during manic or depressed episodes. Additionally, helping people who live with PTSD, anxiety, and depression caused by elements of trauma is my main focus and come with personal experieince of trauma-informed care. I work with individuals, children, families, as well as groups. My theoretical orientation involves the narrative approach as well as being person-centered to support the moment. How we perceive the world is uniquely our own. Yet with the narrative approach to therapy we have the power to re-construct our story that can change the trajectory of our life's narrative. I am excited to become a Havening Practioner, as the first time a therapist used Havening Techniques on me, I knew there was more to healing than just through talk therapy. Havening truly releases the energetic impact of stressful events and increases resiliency through psychosensory therapy. I consider myself a life-long student and am passionate about finding effective ways for people to operate at their maximum efficiency by letting go of worry, hurt, dissapointment, and distorted perceptions that cloud our life story.
