I enjoy using a patient centered approach to therapy, utilizing approaches fit for the individual, couple or family, while
incorporating a variety of techniques. I offer a client centered psychotherapy for children and adults.
My experience has been with adults and children who have barriers that prevent them from living fully. I have experience working within inpatient and outpatient medical settings, high schools, and community organizations.
My specialties are working with those that suffer from depression, anxiety, anger management issues, self esteem, and day to day struggles. I am EMDR trained and found it very beneficial for many issues. As a therapist in the Santa Maria area, I enjoy working with people with a broad spectrum of economic, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds.
