“All doubt, despair and fear become insignificant once the intention of life becomes love.” -Rumi
Welcome to New Day Psychotherapy! As a licensed clinical psychologist, I am excited to help you achieve your full potential and enhance your quality of life. I work from a strength-based and culturally-sensitive perspective to provide non-judgmental support, compassion, and empathy. Using a collaborative approach and creating an individualized treatment plan, the therapeutic alliance is strengthened and allows you to feel safe, comfortable, and trusting of the treatment process. I am passionate about working together to help you stabilize mental health, improve personal wellness, increase self-esteem, gain insights, learn new coping skills, explore thoughts and feelings, build resiliency, and develop spiritually.
I specialize in treating individuals, children, teens, and families who struggle with depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation, personality disorders, trauma and abuse, chemical dependency, disordered eating and distorted body image, toxic shame, communication difficulties, behavioral issues, adjustment transitions, and stress management. I utilize various modalities and evidence based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Structural Family Therapy, play and art therapy, and hypnosis.
I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have been practicing for the past 7 years and have extensive experience working in outpatient community counseling centers with children, adolescents, and adults. I have been the Program Manager at a residential treatment program for teens, the Clinical Director of a substance abuse treatment facility in Los Angeles, and the Clinical Director of an eating disorder treatment program in Orange County.
I hope we have the opportunity to work together and I look forward to meeting you!
