So what is Solution-Focused Therapy? It focuses on short-term-outcomes, rather than spending years dwelling on and analyzing the problem. While traditional long-term therapy and an in-depth exploration of the past may be appropriate in some situations, it's generally not necessary in most. Whether it's a separation, divorce, domestic violence, parenting or co-parenting, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, I'll personalize a plan that guides you to a desired outcome. I also assist individuals needing immigration hardship assessments and treatment.
I am a bilingual Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT #103325), licensed and registered with the California State Board of Behavioral Sciences. I have extensive experience working with individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds. I am also an active participant in a number of educational forums and also offer the convenience of telemedicine (therapy sessions via phone). I prefer to use Solution-Focused therapy, as it allows me to rapidly determine the problem, and then implement goal-directed and future-focused modalities directed toward developing and guiding my clients towards a solution that is aligned with their vision and that best achieves a positive outcome for them.
I'm also registered with the Riverside County Court / Probation Department with respect to Co-Parenting classes (Please note: you don't have to be court mandated, you may come in voluntarily to address these issues). In addition, I am also a Group Facilitator for the following programs: child endangerment, anger-management and domestic violence.
