I was recently featured on the front cover of the Los Angeles Times (6/18/14) sharing the tools that helped me to survive a personal tragedy. I have more than 15 years of experience within the Behavioral Health field. I offer state of the art treatment to individuals from all walks of life, without judgment. Have you been hurting for a long time? Ever wondered about the purpose of living? Do you have a testimony buried in your soul? Then come explore, share, journey, unfold and unmask the inner you.
I specialize in grief/loss and offer effective treatment strategies to assist you with balancing life, overcoming or accepting obstacles and reducing negative messages that are embedded within your psyche from your past. Learn how to Recall, Confront and Transform (RCT) your life experiences.
You can expect a comprehensive assessment, establishment of mutually agreed upon goals that are SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound) and effective practical interventions. Learn the different types of losses: opportunity, love, innocence, childhood, desire, death, peace, connection, belonging and so much more...
