About Me


Qualifications

Experience
I began my career as a case manager after completing my under graduate degree, and since have worked in a variety of settings providing individual, family, and group therapy, both in outpatient, in home, and inpatient facilities. I have training and experience in working with youth, families, and individuals recovering from trauma, depression, loss & grief, and behavioral problems.  I also have extensive training and specialize in co-occurring drug and alcohol abuse treatment and trauma related disorders. 

My work in community mental health services has been very fulfilling, and I have worked in some of the most intensive residential and field based services within the county.  One of my most recent roles were as a Program Manager of the newest program within Los Angeles County (Intensive Field Capable Clinical Services), where I worked alongside my director to both develop the structure of the intensity of services, and recruit and train the staff assigned to this program.  Following that, I was an Assistant Director for Community Based Services, which included outpatient, school based, and intensive home based services (supervising both clinicians and clinical supervisors).  In addition to my work providing services, supervising, and training in community mental health services, I have worked as a consultant to Drug and Alcohol programs.  My work as a consultant included identifying and developing curriculum for drug and alcohol abuse counselors, developing assessment tools and treatment plans, along with providing supervision to counselors delivering the services.   

Although my roles in the capacity of a manager were very fulfilling, I did miss working directly with clients, which is why I ventured in opening up my private practice. 
Education
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Substance Abuse Professional.  I attended California State University of Northridge where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and a Master of Science Degree in counseling, emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.
