'Providing a guiding light for you and your family'
I am so glad you are here. It can feel so overwhelming when you are searching for a therapist. My goal is to make this process easy for you. I hope you find some level of comfort knowing that you came to the right place and that we can tackle whatever challenges that come your way together.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist and earned my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University in San Diego, California.
With Lighthouse Marriage and Family Therapy, I hope to help others by offering a neutral place for my clients to freely express their feelings, concerns and uncertainty. By doing so, I hope to create a sense of security and clarity which is my overall goal - helping others heal in a safe way. In addition to offering an ear and heart to my clients, I am in pursuit of actively de-stigmatizing therapy and want others to know and feel the power of healing through therapy.
Clinically, my philosophy is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Client Center Psychotherapy. I’ve worked extensively with all ages and specifically with tweens and young adults. My experience as an associate marriage and family therapist provided me with skills to help individuals, parents, and couples with a wide range of emotional dysregulation, behavioral issues, trauma, and toxic abusive relationships. My passion for psychology developed from my own personal work of understanding my own emotions and relationships over the past eight years. I’ve experienced different stages of personal development and growth. I continue to strive towards a deeper understanding of myself and others.
I am thrilled to share my goal of creating an anchor for those who are willing to explore and cultivate themselves by creating a safe and non-judgmental space. If healing is on your heart, please feel free to reach out to me or schedule an appointment. I can't wait to meet you.
At this time, I do not accept insurance and instead offer an affordable cash rate
Some things to consider when using insurance:
Some insurance plans require a mental health diagnosis for billing purposes
Some insurance plan offer limited session depending on coverage
Not all insurance plan cover couples counseling unless one partner is the client
I do offer a sliding scale please contact me for more information
