Mind Body Connect Family Counseling
Mind Body Connect Family Counseling provides counseling, psychotherapy, and mind-body therapies to individuals, couples and families seeking professional help for their mental health and wellness needs. I specialize in offering a holistic approach to treatment and care, by integrating the best of Western theories of Counseling and Psychology with Eastern philosophies of health and wellness.
I am a firm believer that obstacles may be turned into opportunities. Through both curious questioning and active listening, together we may illuminate your strengths and opportunity areas of growth. My goal is that after our first session, you will feel that we have a pathway for a desired solution. I have worked with ages ranging from 5 to 85 years young. I have a credential in School Counseling K-12 and have worked in schools, hospitals, non-profit agencies, and law enforcement. I have also taught stress management classes to the chronically ill. I work with grief, loss, depression, relationship issues, adolescent, and parenting challenges. My practice is built on providing a safe, supportive, and empathic environment to facilitate personal change. I treat each individual, couple, or family with respect and warmth. I work to ensure that our sessions will be tailored to your needs and goals.
I understand that you're both looking for a solution and you want to find the right “fit” for helping you discover that solution. I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, #53478 in the State of California.
Whether working with a young child or an older adult, I will guide the client through the therapy process in a way that feels self-directed. I approach every client with respect, empathy, and understanding as these are the essential features to a positive therapeutic alliance. I operate from a Humanistic, Solution-Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral counseling practice. I create the environment in the therapy room that allows the client to feel accepted and understood. I have experience working as a school counselor for two years as well as working with adults.
