About Me

Empowering Individuals and Families Through Compassionate Care
As a Southern California native and a dedicated mental health professional, I have a deep understanding of the diverse communities I serve. With a profound commitment to helping individuals and families thrive, I provide personalized therapy experiences at The Center for Mental Health Excellence (CFMHE), guiding clients on paths of growth and healing.

A Journey of Excellence in Education and Leadership
My pursuit of excellence in mental health led me to earn a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of San Diego and a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University. As an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Pepperdine University, I bring my research expertise and clinical acumen to both the classroom and my clinical practice, ensuring that my work is grounded in the latest advancements in the field.

Tailored Therapy for Your Unique Needs
Drawing from my extensive background in academia, clinical supervision, and professional leadership, I am committed to providing individualized therapy experiences tailored to your specific needs. I strive to create a supportive, confidential environment where you can explore your challenges, develop coping strategies, and build resilience, gaining the tools necessary for lasting positive change.

Advancing Mental Health through Research and Innovation
As the founder of CFMHE, I am dedicated to advancing the field of mental health through research and innovation. My research focuses on the biopsychosocial-spiritual influences on health behaviors, relational distress, and evidence-based interventions. By engaging in ongoing research and professional development, I ensure that I deliver the most effective, cutting-edge services to my clients.

Convenient Care Across California
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Board Approved Supervisor in California, I extend my services throughout the state. I am committed to providing a warm, empathetic, and client-centered approach to addressing a wide range of mental health concerns, always leading with expertise and genuine care. In addition to my individual practice, I also supervise a team of dedicated Marriage and Family Therapist Trainees who share my commitment to providing exceptional services.

Finding Joy and Balance in Life
Beyond my professional accomplishments, I find joy in spending time with my family, engaging in activities such as cooking, scuba diving, and exploring new destinations through travel. I believe that maintaining a balanced and fulfilling personal life enhances my ability to provide warm, authentic, and empowering therapy to my clients.
