I believe healing does not have to be a complicated process. I believe in slowing down to get ahead - meeting ourselves in each moment and coming to a place of acceptance of ourselves and our life first. In this space we can take the opportunity to heal in each moment, because that's all that exists. We all have experienced some sort of past conditioning or trauma that has taken us away from our true selves . I think the complication with healing is that most of us seek something outside ourselves to fix us. It could be in the form of a relationship, a material object or a situation. My intention is to help others become independent in their healing and reach a place of freedom, growth and evolution.
A little about me: I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University in California. I received my license in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2009. I have provided therapeutic services in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, and treatment centers. I am a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the Los Angeles County Psychological Association. I have training and education in several mindfulness practices including MBSR, Mindful Schools K-12 curriculum, and using mindfulness for emotional regulation. I am passionate about educating the community on mindfulness to help with prevention and to cope with depression, stress and anxiety. When I'm not in my office I enjoy salsa dancing, cooking, learning languages, meditation and spending time with family!
