Our mission at Inspired Resolutions is to provide effective resources to families in the community struggling with the transitions and changes that come along with having teenagers.
We are dedicated to providing interventions, resources, and counseling that is up to date, relevant, and effective. We respond to the community’s needs. We are the foremost experts in helping your family find happiness.
Inspired Resolutions began in 2016 in response to the great need for more effective services specifically for families raising teenagers. Today we are faced with more complicated problems and solutions than ever before. Families and teens are exposed to and having to cope with issues that we could not have imagined even 10 years ago. The culture, struggles, and pressures change quickly and dramatically for families with teens. Our therapists are experts in helping with the difficulties brought about when raising teens. We have joined with community organizations like the With Hope Foundation (dedicated to educating about teen suicide), local schools, and the local teen courts to provide help to families with teens.
We not only provide paid services such as individual, family, and couples therapy but also believe that it is our responsibility to provide free services to the community. Our therapists are always willing to educate groups in the community and we provide free support groups such as "Hope for Parents With Difficult Teens."

Owner, Therapist, Supervisor
As the founder of Inspired Resolutions my goal is to provide more effective and consistent services for teens, families, and marriages. Over 18 years ago I began as an addiction counselor at the Substance Abuse Foundation. Realizing how addiction and substance abuse was plaguing our youth I joined with "Shields for Families" working with the middle and high school population in Compton. I had the opportunity to work with entire families struggling with incredibly difficult circumstances through the school and in their homes. In 2007 I became a Drug Court therapist for the Central Justice Center providing individual and group therapy in court on a collaborative team including Probation, a Central Judge, a D.A assistant, a Public Defender, and other legal staff. In 2010 I entered into private practice and became a part of the group CIFT. As a therapist with CIFT I joined with the local churches and schools in the Brea, Anaheim Hills, and Placentia communities working to help adolescents and their parents struggling in today's difficult environment.
I am one of the few therapists that has integrated my passion, experience, and understanding of mental health with my passion for nutrition and physical health. My dedication and integration of fitness and nutrition allows clients to identify more complete mental health and life goals. I have found that clients are most successful when they integrate mental, physical, and spiritual aspects to therapy.
With Inspired Resolutions I am dedicated to finding the most effective strategies in helping families and setting teens up for success. I am currently proud to be a part of the With Hope Foundation, a non-profit committed to teaching and understanding teen suicide in schools. I have also partnered with Servite High School in helping any of their students who are struggling with school, family, or social situations.

Having started out with a career in family law, I have built my clinical career around giving hope to broken families. In helping family’s with struggling teens I am the Inspired Resolutions specialist in helping the younger children who are often affected by the teen’s issue in the home. I have had the unique experience
consulting with elementary, middle and high school’s giving me important insight into helping families navigate their children’s school system. As a Drug Court therapist, I have also become experienced in navigating mental health in the legal system that has lead me to work with children and teens of adopted and
foster care families. In joining with our local community I have dedicated my Monday nights from 8-9 pm providing a free group for young women.

As a teen specialist at Inspired Resolutions, I am especially dedicated to helping teens struggling with trauma and self-harm behavior. My experience working with Orange Unified School District, running groups from grade 6-12 for students struggling with emotional and behavioral problems has given me unique insight into not only helping teens, but working with the families, schools, and community to provide more effective treatment. I have partnered with Western Youth Services in helping at-risk teens and low-income families in helping adolescents to overcome academic barriers and families cope with serious defiance, emotional disturbance, and drug use. Educating parents on how to detect the early signs of emotional and behavioral problems and giving accurate assessment and diagnosis is an important part of
my practice. In my clinical approach, I not only help the individuals recover but the families cope. I have unique insight and experience in working with families of Asian cultures. With Inspired Resolutions, I am able to provide effective resources and treatment to help the entire family restore balance and find happiness.

As a therapist at Inspired Resolutions Counseling, I am focused on working with “especially hard to reach teens”, who are in need of help. I have 10 plus years of experience working with teens, including teaching high school Spanish, leading teen Christian groups, and working with teens in martial arts. As a father of 3, I am committed to helping families find health and happiness regardless of the struggles they currently find themselves dealing with. I also have a heart for working with Spanish speaking families and underserved families. As a Spanish speaker I am especially skilled in working with families in which parents are unable to communicate effectively in English. My passion for surfing and martial arts has given me a unique therapeutic perspective allowing me to help individuals, couples, and families find a healthy balance in healing.

As a teen specialist, I am especially experienced in helping families struggling with co-parenting issues and the transition of divorce. My internships were with teens needing intensive hospitalization and help with suicide ideations. I also have experience helping individuals and families with teens who are struggling with social skills issues. I am trained in EMDR therapy to help individuals who have suffered significant trauma. Periodically I co-facilitate a Christian group at a local church focused on helping women set healthy boundaries in difficult marriages and relationships. I have a passion for helping families and couples find healing and peace when the relationship has been broken by infidelity, grief, and significant life crisis’.
As a therapist at Inspired Resolutions Counseling, I am passionate about bringing healing and hope to teens, adults, couples, and families. My goal is to help you work through trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, anger, or the feeling of being stuck so that you are able to move forward to become your best self.
Trauma is often at the root of many mental health issues. As an EMDR trained therapist, I see traumatic wounds as roadblocks to peace and happiness. I help people to process their traumas so that they are able to build safe, connected, and healthy relationships with themselves and others.
My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that in each of us there is a deep longing to be seen and heard by another person within a safe place. I strive to provide that place within the therapeutic process.

I believe that individuals are the experts of their own lives. My goal is to create a safe environment for you to explore and navigate your journey. My hope is that as you begin your journey, you become more aware and insightful of what is happening within you and around you. Subsequently, you can become more confident as you grow in and through this process. If we are a good fit, I hope to share in your journey in a compassionate and authentic manner.
I have experience working with families and individuals of all ages, most specifically working with children and families going through difficult transitions. I have worked with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, oppositional defiance, and autism. I utilize evidence-based treatments, individualizing interventions to best support each individual.
Over the years I have explored the effects of video game use on children and adolescents. I have completed extensive research in the field and have explored various treatment approaches in moderating video game use in children and adolescents.
