ABOUT ME. My passion is to help my clients juggle the pressures of life, in a more balanced way. I work to help people realize their true potential and achieve their personal goals. To begin the process of achieving optimal mental health, I assist my clients in first developing a self care routine that is a vital part of our work together. If one is not feeling well mentally, it usually pours over into their physical and spirtual wellbeing as well. It is my aim to help my clients achieve “whole-istic” health, meaning total mind, body and spirit wellness. I strive to help my clients to create a space where they can build the confidence and motivation needed to live the lives they have been dreaming of.
MY EXPERIENCE. I was born and raised in San Diego and lived all over the county from North County to the South Bay area. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree at San Diego State University in Psychology and my Masters in Science degree from University of Phoenix in Counseling- Marriage & Family Therapy. I work with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger managment, stress, grief and loss. I also specialize in Narcissitic Abuse Recovery Therapy and work closely with Shaliss Padilla, LMFT our Founder/CEO who is a Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Expert.
My experience in mental health over the past 7 years has come from a variety of settings including an inpatient locked facility, state hospital, mobile crisis response, community outreach, outpatient clinics and private practice. I am an advocate for client care and helping connect individuals with the care and support they need. I have experience providing individual therapy, group therapy and helping link individuals to resources in San Diego County.
MY APPROACH. My approach to therapy is to meet you where you are, and ultimately, to help you build up to where you want to be. I am not here to tell you what to do in your life; I am here to walk alongside you to guide and support you into becoming the best version of yourself.
