Masters in Counseling Psychology
As a psychotherapist, it is my desire to help you live your life to the fullest and healthiest potential. I believe attending to one’s mental health is a central step in leading the “successful life” most people desire. I want my clients to know there is hope for positive change and that they do not have to be stuck in unhealthy patterns or states of mind.
When a person desires to attend therapy, I believe they are already on a road to healing. Whether an individual is seeking help with anxiety, depression, self-harm, anger, relationship improvement, life transitions, or various other difficulties, it is my desire to provide an empathetic ear and to treat each person with dignity. I consider it an honor to be a part of an individual’s mental wellness journey as they find their inner strength to work through whatever symptoms or problems they may be facing.
I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After completing my undergraduate degree I gained experience through a variety of jobs. I was a behavioral aide with adolescents in a group home, a social worker with children and families in the foster care setting, and a case manager with adult individuals experiencing homelessness in a drop-in center. I went back to school and graduated with a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in the fall of 2019. I gained two years of clinical experience providing therapy to a variety of different ages in a clinical and school setting in the Santa Rosa area of California.
I believe it is in the best interest of each individual with whom I work to consider who they are as a whole person; this includes their history, culture, gender, sexual expression, socioeconomic status, physical and spiritual health, and so many other facets that influence an individual and their wellbeing. I believe my role, as a therapist is to walk alongside individuals on their path to mental healing. I love it when I am able to help individuals find their strength within themselves, and I consider it a privilege to journey with someone as they share parts of their story with me. I utilize a number of different therapeutic techniques to best suit each person, however, I tend to apply Person-Centered, Solution Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) theories most often.
