A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.
By the time someone comes for therapy, they have experienced the bruising which life can bring. I have taken great comfort and direction in my work as a therapist to extend grace to the clients I work with.
I have been working in the field for nearly 20 years. I started working in an inpatient psychiatric crisis center for people with acute, chronic mental illness for stabilization of their symptoms as well as issues of homelessness and problems of substance use. The years of work at the crisis center provided valuable experience working with multiple disorders as well as working as the assistant director providing management and supervision for the clinical staff.
In the last few years I moved on from the crisis center to work as a therapist at a local psychiatric hospital in the outpatient program where I lead groups for seniors several days a week and one day with veterans working through their past traumatic experiences.
Working in private practice for the past 11 years, has given me the opportunity to serve couples and individuals on a variety of issues ranging from communication skills, learning skills to manage depression and anxiety, addiction, and emotion regulation.
In addition to therapy, I also work as an adjunct professor at Azusa Pacific University, and Point Loma Nazarene University teaching on a number of subjects for their marriage and family therapy programs.
