Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist AMFT 118153
Supervised by Jennifer R. Levin, MFT, PhD, FT, MFC 93269
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with a passion for helping clients through difficult life transitions. One of the most challenging and emotionally taxing transitions is the loss of a loved one. I feel strongly that bereavement is an important process that deserves to be acknowledged and honored, and I work with individuals and families to find healing in their grief. Beyond the death of a loved one, grief and loss extends to difficult life experiences, traumas or challenging transitions. I am dedicated to helping clients not only get through, but to realize growth opportunities that come from despair, find new meaning in their lives, and a new hope for the future.
I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree at UCLA, and my Master’s Degree at Pacific Oaks College, in Pasadena. My training has included working within the psychiatric unit at Adventist Health, Glendale, where I helped patients dealing with mental health crises that required acute hospital treatment, including major depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, psychosis, grief and loss, and suicidal ideation. I continue my work as a therapist at the hospital, working with individuals and groups, and families that are faced with a loved one’s mental health diagnosis and associated challenges.
I strive to help clients identify the resources and strengths they have that will be invaluable in their healing and growth, and to reach their highest level of functioning. I bring empathy and compassion to this work, and am passionate about helping clients not only survive, but thrive.
I am currently providing therapy with adolescents, teens, individuals and families at Therapy Heals, including both individual and group services.
