I am a licensed Marriage and Family Counselor by the California Board of Behavioral Science and educator, with over 20 years of experience working in the social services field. I have taught child development courses at the community college level and developed and directed several early childhood education programs.  I co-founded one of the first Post-Partum Doula Services in the Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey tri-state area.

I tailor my counseling and therapy approaches upon the belief that individuals possess the necessary skills to acquire harmony in self, family and community; that this innate drive is unique to a person and a situation while vulnerable to the challenges that are inherent to today's society. My goal is to assist you in removing any obstacle you are experiencing that inhibits your ability to fully participate and enjoy your life.More specifically I incorporate a systemic approach emphasizes factors such as relationships and communication patterns rather than traits or symptoms. Additionally, I practice Solution Focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Solution focused therapy is a technique that keeps the focus on the results you want to achieve emphasizing the present and the future while helping you use your strengths and resources to recreate the change you desire.
