About me

I am an individual and couples therapist licensed in California with over 7 years of experience as a counselor and mental health practitioner. As humans, I believe we live in an interdependent world in which diverse relationships within family, community and workplace frame our lives. I have worked with clients who have experienced struggles with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and career transitions. I partner with you as a reflective, healing presence in the midst of uncertainty and persistent change.

My counseling style is warm and hopeful. I see each individual as unique and distinct and although life comes with challenges, I believe we don’t have to get stuck in the pain or despair. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and emotion focused principles. I enjoy partnering with clients and creating a safe place to express difficult experiences along with inner-most thoughts and feelings. My passion is to see clients experience emotional and relational healing and succeed in life.
