Finding a therapist that you really connect with is an important and vital part of the change process. My approach to therapy is characterized by a caring attitude for my clients and a true collaboration with them in order achieve their goals.

My Therapy Approach:You may not realize it, but therapists have different approaches to counseling - it's called 'theoretical orientation'. My clinical approach has a very positive theoretical orientation that
believes people are competent and resourceful. The focus, therefore, is

them. Designed as short-term, therapy sessions involve exploring how my
clients (individuals, couples, or families) would like things to be
different, how to make those differences happen and to recognize what
signs indicate changes are happening.
My Experience:I received my bachelor's degree from the
University of Texas, Austin and a master's degree in psychology from

Graduate School of Education and Psychology at Pepperdine University,
Malibu where I instruct master's level graduate students about the
theories and techniques of counseling.
