Therapists in Monterey Park, California CA
Marriage and Family Therapist, MDiv, LMFT
I first got my start in ministry working as a worship leader and musician, and later in the private and public schools as a teacher. These experiences opened my eyes to the need for people of all ages to find healing through difficult experiences. My therapy career began in the private practice setting and then I worked at a clinic as a child and family therapist for several years before starting my own practice. My specialization and training is in working with couples, kids and families and individuals. Currently, I'm an EMDR certified therapist which is one of the best evidence based trauma recovery models for those wanting to move through painful experiences and find healing from trauma. My goal is to walk with you on the healing journey and help you understand how to have a healthier relationship with yourself and others.

Psychologist, PsyD, MA
Pain is inevitable in life but suffering doesn't have to be. Suffering arises when anxiety rules us. We are anxious about facing our fears, so we avoid them. We are anxious about letting others get close, so we isolate ourselves. Psychotherapy can provide a doorway out of these loops. We cannot prevent difficulties and tragedies. However, we can learn to manage our internal reactions to external circumstances and relationships. Self-empowerment comes from finding the courage to face our internal world in all its messiness and complexity.
