I am a bi-lingual, Spanish speaking Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern working towards Licensure under the supervision of Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Naveen Jonathan. I am a member of AAMFT, American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists as a Pre-Clinical Fellow.
I received my master’s degree from Chapman University where my passion began for working with couples, families, children, and adolescents. I focus on helping families and couples who want to improve their relationships, including couples struggling to communicate and couples wanting to take their relationship to the next level. I also help children and adolescents overcome challenges, and develop their unique inborn strengths in their journey towards adulthood.
I take a collaborative approach in my work. Our therapeutic relationship is important for therapy to be successful, which is why I encourage an open dialogue between us to find what works best in helping you reach your goals.
