I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I earned my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from CSU, Fresno in 2009. The focus of my practice is to help children, adults, and couples work through life's difficult moments and build emotional integrity. My passion is in working with couples and my goal is to help them have joy in their relationship. My interest in counseling started with my own family, especially my parent's relationship. Although it was imperfect, it taught me the importance of having a strong marital bond for the good of the whole family. I also learned the importance of communication and forgiveness in relationships from my parents. Personally, I was always intrigued about the ways that people interact and how this interaction impacts other behaviors. It has been rewarding to me to help others by listening and understanding their life experiences and help them improve their relationships.
