About me

I am a licensed psychologist in California. I have experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & trauma and abuse. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. My approach to therapy is integrative and holistic— mainly informed through psychodynamic (insight-oriented), somatic (body-focused), interpersonal approaches. In sessions, we might focus on exploring patterns that are contributing to your current concerns (e.g. childhood experiences or family relationships, defenses, previous similar situations), your relationship patterns with others and your relationship with yourself, somatic movement/exercises, or processing and understanding your emotions. At times, I will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) if it is a better fit for what you might be seeking therapy for. Regardless of the approach we use, the focus will always be on empowerment, agency, and developing a stronger relationship with yourself.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
