I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT137624) who works with adults from diverse backgrounds who are struggling with finding stability in day-to-day tasks, confidence in work and relationships, or finding their place in society.
At one point or another we all experience hardships in life. These moments may occur due to neglect or abuse during childhood, judgment or exclusion by teachers or peers or others around us, or various forms of violence. Hardships hurt us and force us to hide parts of ourselves. These exiled parts take energy and weigh us down and, over time, can inhibit our personal and spiritual growth.
My depth-oriented, emotionally-focused, relational, spiritual, and experiential approach welcomes all aspects of who you are into the therapy room including the ashamed or self-critical parts you might keep hidden from the world. Through curiosity and courage I will assist you in your inner journey of healing and transformation. With calmness and compassion, I will assist you in hearing and healing burdens from the past. Together we’ll foster self-awareness, building a stronger and more resilient Self.
I believe that cultural upbringing is deeply rooted in habits and personality and is an integral part of treatment. As a culturally-complex person who has lived in different countries and speaks several languages, I bring my cultural awareness into the room to help you explore and understand your cultural complexion, influences, and any cultural oppression you may experience.
Expertise in the areas in which you want to focus and the quality of the therapeutic relationship are both important factors in successful therapy. To get a sense of how I’d approach therapy with you, and to determine if I am the right fit for you, schedule a free initial consultation with me by giving me a call at (310) 987-7455 or use my online booking to schedule a convenient time to talk with me on the phone.
