I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist serving the South Bay area of Los Angeles. The focus of my practice is building stronger families, and I do this through offering a variety of specialized services including therapy for individuals, couples, and teens.
Families are the heart of everything. But, family life isn’t always easy. There are many times where our home life may be unsettled, or may be more stressful than being at school or at work. The skills needed to have a happy home (communication skills, time management, financial planning) don’t come naturally to most people. We all have lacking communication at times. We all have moments where we don’t understand what our loved one is trying to do or say.
If you find yourself here, then you are ready to invest in building a better future. You are ready to create the family you always saw in your head. Most of us do not enter adulthood with all of the skills we will need to be our best parenting selves or the best partner we can be. Many people need to change the way they communicate and relate to others in order to adapt to their changing roles.
This is where I come in. I’m highly trained and experienced with helping people learn better communication skills, conflict management, and compassion for self and others. Through my years of experience as a therapist, and my life experience as a mother, wife, and stepmother, I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t work.
If you choose to work with me this is what you can expect. I will help you develop your coping skills, increase your ability to communicate your wants and needs, and build your resiliency to face the ups and downs of your life. You might become less reactive and more aware. You might find yourself able to think about your response to your partner or your child before snapping at them. You might be able to build your relationships instead of sabotaging them. You might even feel a sense of wellbeing and confidence in yourself. I use compassion, humor, and skill building to help you get there. We will laugh and cry and you will have a chance to feel and express the full range of emotions that comes with being human.
