Hello there! I am grateful you took the time to read my profile. I am an intern at Cedar Valley Counseling and currently finishing up my masters in clinical mental health counseling at Antioch University. I received my B.A. from the University of California, Irvine, in cognitive psychology and my masters in special education from Azusa Pacific University. I have ample experience working with teens and in special education.
As a counselor, I enjoy working with teens and individual adults on many issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, social skills, academic and/or organizational difficulties, eating disorders, life transitions, etc. I counsel largely through the theories of CBT, person-centered and existentialism, all through the lens of the individual’s unique strengths, worldview and cultural diversity. I highly value a holistic approach when counseling clients and find creative expression, as well as mindfulness practices, being in nature, exercise, and nutrition to be pertinent to many clients’ healing journey.
Personally, I love being in nature and hiking with my dog, Spruce. I am also a proficient rock climber and guitar player, all of which I find to be important self-care practices for my own mental, physical and emotional well-being. I look forward to getting to know you. You are not alone in this journey!
