Provides psychotherapy services to individuals, pre-teens, teens, young adults, couples and families.
Hello and Welcome here. Imagine we are sitting down over a warm cup of something (coffee for me thanks and you?....). Here are a few things to make it easier for you to know a little about who I am, what it is I do and my heart for helping others...like YOU!
I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT #101647).
What that means is I have a Masters of Arts degree in Marriage and Family therapy and am completing licensure hours working under my supervisor / employer Rose T. Gamino, LMFT#48756 while I am providing psychotherapy services.
I am certified with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) to provide psychotherapy (aka; counseling, therapy, talk therapy, mental health services) to individuals, children, couples and families.
I work collaboratively with people to help them in their mental and emotional health journey.
I want to help you THRIVE in your life and not just SURVIVE!
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT:
As a therapist I do not tell you what to do. The process of therapy is based on collaboration with you as the expert on your life. You know yourself the best yet you may need guidance, support, a cheerleader in your corner, a gentle nudge in the right direction, a new way of learning to cope, break unhealthy patterns, start new healthy patterns, to gain new insights or coping skills or other help in some challenging areas of your life to grow, change, and heal.
