I have been working with clients for over 5 years. I have a B.S. in Psychology and a Master’s (M.A.) Degree in Counseling Psychology, with a Correctional Emphasis (a focus on at-risk youth), both from Santa Clara University.
For 3.5 years, I interned with Bill Wilson Center as a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern through the Outpatient clinic, School Outreach program, Residential Youth program, and the Centre for Living with Dying. Through this, I gained experience in working with adults, children, teenagers, and families with various issues.
For 2 years, I worked as a Residential Counselor and MFT Intern with Center for Discovery, a residential facility for adolescents struggling with eating disorders.
In January 2013, I joined Counseling for ACTion as an MFT intern where I began working in a private practice setting under supervision. Here I worked with a variety of individuals, families, and couples and even provided on-campus counseling services to children and families, in English and Spanish, at Santee School in San Jose in 2013.
For 2 years, I worked with FHAR as an Independent Living Skills Trainer (ILS) in the Peninsula, where I helped those with developmental disabilities develop skills to live independently. I have also worked as a Resident Service Coordinator for the Villages Medical Auxilary in San Jose, assisting Seniors in finding needed resources.
