Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist or LMFT who specializes in children and adolescent family therapy. The LMFT status I have obtained means I have reached the highest level of licensure possible to practice therapy. I have been working with children, adolescents, and families for over almost a decade. I have experience working and volunteering as a Child and Adolescent Habilitation Specialist, Child Development Specialist, and as a Child Life Specialist at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Also, I have experience as being a part of Arizona’s Early Intervention Program where I helped teach other professionals to learn the importance of Early Intervention. I have 6 years of experience as a teacher teaching multiple ages. I also have specializations in working with children with challenging behaviors, families with special needs,infant and toddler mental health, and medical family therapy. I have also been a part of hundreds of hours of research conducted at ASU through different projects that studied and researched how to raise mentally healthy children and families. I am here to help and will respond to your inquiry for services within 24 hours on weekdays.
