Work Description
I have a diverse educational background in psychology, counseling, and psychotherapy. I completed my bachelor's degree in psychology at California State University, Los Angeles. Building upon that, I pursued further education and earned graduate degrees in psychoanalytic studies from the University of Essex in the UK. This specialized training deepened my understanding of psychoanalysis and its application in therapeutic contexts. In order to pursue clinical work, I underwent extensive clinical training in Transactional Analysis at the prestigious Metanoia Institute in London. This comprehensive training program provided me with the necessary knowledge, skills, and practical experience to effectively apply Transactional Analysis in therapeutic settings.

In addition to these, upon moving to the US, I pursued a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling from the University of Houston-Victoria. This comprehensive program provided me with a solid foundation in counseling theory, research, and practical skills. Through coursework and supervised clinical experiences, I successfully obtained licensure as a mental health professional in the state of Texas. This licensure serves as a testament to my commitment to professional excellence and my ability to adhere to the highest standards of practice.

I have extensive experience working with adults who struggle with various challenges such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family and work-related concerns, lack of self-worth, identity and purpose, and living with chronic illnesses, including cancer. My therapeutic approach is contractual, which means that we will work collaboratively to ensure that you understand and feel in control of the counseling process.

As a doctoral-level psychotherapist trained in both the US and the UK, I am dedicated to providing high-quality care and support. I offer a free initial phone consultation to help you determine if counseling is the right path for you. During this consultation, we can discuss your concerns and explore how the treatment process might look for you. This will allow us to create a personalized plan that suits your needs and goals.

I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Together, we can work towards greater self-awareness, personal growth, and overall well-being.

If you are interested in scheduling a free initial phone consultation, please reach out to me. I am here to support you on your journey towards healing and self-discovery.
