Education and Training
Helen received her master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California.

As part of this work, Helen lived and worked in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia.

Since beginning her work in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2013, Helen has done significant work with clients of all ages struggling with trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and anxiety. Helen is comfortable working with people along the full spectrum of gender and sexual identities, and enjoys working with all who are looking to save, repair, improve, and enjoy their relationships.
Helen specializes in Gottman Marital Therapy and works with couples to better connect through the communication skills that are key to healthy, lasting relationships. She is trained in several evidence-based practices (EBPs) to treat symptoms that arise from trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, and struggles with identity. These EBP’s include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based treatment that assists clients in recovering from trauma and other distressing events (http://www.emdr.com/what-is-emdr/); Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), a well-researched and effective treatment to help clients confront and overcome their OCD symptoms (https://iocdf.org/about-ocd/ocd-treatment/erp/); and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapy-types/dialectical-behavior-therapy), a methodology that assists clients with emotional regulation and life skills development. Helen also has substantial experience working with clients as they explore and define their own spiritual and ethical foundations.
