I have a passion for helping others. I have over 15 years of experience working in the mental health field in different settings. I love working in all settings ranging from the mental health hospitals, emergency group home shelters for adolescents, schools, and even the clients’ home. The age range of clients I have worked with extends from ages 2 years old to 65 years of age. I have worked with youth, adults, parents, school personnel and have facilitated various therapy groups.

I am also a registered Psychological Assistant with the California Board of Psychology.
