About Me

Depressed? Anxious? Stressed about life changes? I truly believe in therapy because it works, and you deserve to feel better. My philosophy about therapy is that everyone has the tools to feel better, but sometimes they need help learning how to use these tools. That’s where I come in. Therapy is a sacred space to share difficult things for the first time and for that reason being a therapist is such a privilege to me. To be a part of your story is an honor. I believe that the relationship you have with your therapist is one of the most important things in the journey to betterment, and so I believe in being real with you and down to earth.

I have been practicing as a therapist in California for the past 6 years with young adults and adolescents. I work with people experiencing a range of different things, including depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, and stressful life changes, among other things. I believe in finding the solutions to problems and not focusing on the past, but looking at what can be done now and in the future to change how we think, feel and respond to difficult situations that arise. I believe in helping clients create their own unique toolbox of techniques they can use to feel their best both now, but also to draw from in the future. I am a certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist which is an empirically supported treatment model that I use in my practice. I am also certified in Managing and Adapting Practices, which is a model that helps specifically with anxiety, ADHD, disruptive behaviors and trauma.

If you think we are a good fit, let me know! I would love to get started with you on your journey to feeling your best!
