About this pro

My Vision:

Empowering every person to achieve more and create a healthy mind.

​My Mission:

My practice exists to provide high-quality, and specific mental health services to improve the health of our community. I enjoy being a partner with our community, collaborating to promote healthy lifestyles and to help people realize their full potential.

I love connecting with people to help them in whatever area they need in life.  am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist providing online services in California. My area of expertise is working with individuals and families dealing with the challenges and stressors of living with chronic illness. In addition to working directly with kids and teens diagnosed with chronic illness, I also work with their siblings and care-givers who may need their own support and healing as a result of the new family diagnosis.

 
My passion for this work comes from my own childhood challenges. When I was 10 years old my Mom was diagnosed with insulin-dependent Type 2 Diabetes. I went from being a typical care-free kid to become her care-taker. The diagnosis caused a huge shift in our family dynamics and loaded me with fear and uncertainty.  Not having an outlet for those feelings caused even more stress and anxiety.  At age 13, I was diagnosed with Chron's disease. The new diagnosis compounded the challenges that my family and I were facing. It also made me feel different and alienated from my peers. While doctors and specialists dealt with my physical health, my mental health needs went unaddressed.
 
My childhood and early adolescence experiences inspired me to seek a career path that would allow me to make a difference for families going through difficult life challenges. I get tremendous joy from being a part of the healing process for kids and caretakers during these difficult life moments. I have worked with families, including families and kids dealing with the stressors of living with type 1 diabetes, for the past 7 years assisting them in creating mentally healthy lifestyles and living their lives to their full potential.
