Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Serving Valencia

I was raised in Santa Clarita and am thrilled to have a career where I can give back to my community by providing compassionate therapy and counseling services. After graduating summa cum laude from California State University, I went on to become a California licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

I have put in more than 2,000 volunteer hours helping the people of our community. During my time as an In-Home Outreach Counselor, I worked with the Department of Children and Family Services, the Department of Mental Health, Victims of Crime, and other community agencies to provide therapy services to those who need it most.

I am also a Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Counselor. I have worked with the Los Angeles Police Department, District Attorney’s Office, Center for Assault Treatment Services, and Neighborhood Legal Services to provide crisis intervention, treatment, and advocacy for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, rape, trafficking, and child abuse. I have also worked with at-risk youth and children with severe emotional and behavioral health problems.

Ready to Help You

What are you looking for in a therapist? Everyone has different needs, and finding the right counselor is a process. I have a strong passion for helping people, and I believe that everyone should have access to mental health services. I work with patients throughout Santa Clarita regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, legal status, age, disability, or religion. The only thing that matters is that you’re a person and you’re looking for help.

Since opening my practice, I have helped numerous members of the community. I was here during the tragic Route 91 mass shooting and have provided counseling and healing to some of the local survivors. It is an honor and a privilege to provide the people of my hometown with a service that can help them through some of life’s most difficult moments.
