I have been a psychotherapist for close to 20 years and have found my passion in treating trauma and disordered eating. I graduated from National University with my master’s in counseling psychology and am on target to complete my doctorate in marriage and family therapy from Northcentral University in 2023. Additionally, I am completing the requirements towards my eating disorder specialist certification through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). I have provided therapeutic services in a variety of settings, including inpatient care at Loma Linda University Behavioral Medical Center and the County of Riverside. I found my passion in treating those affected by trauma and struggling with disordered eating. I am trained and qualified in Trauma Focused (TF-CBT) and qualified as a certified trauma specialist in dissociative disorders. Along with treating trauma and eating disorders, I enjoy assisting parents with parenting skills, couples and family therapy, obsessive compulsive disorder as well as mood disorders. I am trained in a variety of modalities, including DBT, CBT, IFS and ERT for OCD. I strongly believe in a holistic and integrative approach to therapy and encourage clients to discover their strengths and healing from a compassionate and strengths based approach.
