I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in California with over 4 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of counseling including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Grace made me feel very comfortable right out of the gate. She’s very consistent when listening to me and pointing out the things I need to hear. I’m so glad she’s who I was paired up with!

I felt comfortable opening up to Grace right away. Not only is she warm and kind, but she is also able to help me get to the root of my problems without pressure or judgment. I always look forward to my sessions with her, which has not been the case for me with other therapists in the past.

Grace's counseling style is warm, gentle, casual, and almost maternal at times. She's a good listener, incredibly easy to open up to, and she creates a very calm, nurturing vibe during counseling sessions. Talking to her feels very natural and effortless, like you're just talking to your friend over coffee. As a first-time therapy seeker, Grace's warmth, informality, and sunny disposition were exactly what I needed.
