Happy to meet you!
Prior to becoming a therapist, I was a linguist, a teacher, and a manager of a private language school. It was a great experience that is still helping me to connect to people from different ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
My education includes a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University in Irvine (School of Professional Psychology). Before opening my private practice, I worked for several years in different non-profit agencies, where I acquired substantial clinical experience counseling individuals, couples, groups, and families.
I've worked with individuals having problems with anxiety, depression, addiction, self-esteem, abuse, trauma, anger, and other issues. I've worked with a variety of couples dealing with trust, anger, infidelity, communication, intimacy, common interests, and many other problems in their relationships. I've worked with families with adult children, having difficulties understanding each other, fighting over money, control, housing arrangements, or even addiction. I led multiple groups of people dealing with addiction, anger, parenting, life and career stresses. I have developed a special program for single people looking for a life partner. It brought joy into my life to see my patients succeed.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California (Lic. # MFC 48642). I am constantly improving my skills through continuing education in many areas, including phobias, anxiety, stress, sexuality, and couples' counseling.
I am also an expert on relationships, including couples counseling, marriage counseling, and anxiety on the international well-known site YourTango.com/Smart Talk about love. I participate in their various projects and write articles for them. You can find some of my articles on the page "Extra resources/articles."
I also professionally answer questions about love, relationships, interpersonal interactions, and anxiety on Quora.com
My hobbies include travelling, reading, dancing, live theater, music, walking, and yoga. You will feel at ease talking to me about your problems!
