About me

Are you striving to thrive and struggling to get there? Do your thoughts and worries keep you up at night? Has life not turned out to be what you expected? You've come to the right place. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, and have over 9 years of experience working with a wide variety of concerns from anxiety, stress & worry, trauma & abuse, depression, grief & loss, to relational and communication issues, work & career challenges, and low confidence / self esteem. I have also helped many folks with creative blocks, personal growth, spiritual crises and issues, and those in life transitions. I have a special place in my heart for those that reach out, look at what's not working and try to make it better.

You'll find me to be calm, caring and accepting. I think it's very important to respect others, their experience and meet people where they are with sensitivity and compassion. So, your dialog and treatment plan will be as unique as you and your story are. As a Holistic Psychotherapist, I work from a strength-based perspective, which means I want to find what is right with you and build on those strengths. It also means that I incorporate tradition talk therapy methods (such as cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, psychodynamic, gestalt, humanistic, somatic awareness, transpersonal, and positive psychology among others), with alternative healing methods (energy psychology, meditation, guided visualization, therapeutic breathing, and nutrition as pertains to the brain). This integrated and balanced counseling approach summons the strengths of all your parts to meet the challenge in front of you.

It's courageous to seek change, growth and deeper satisfaction with life. I'd like to empower and support you in that journey if you are ready to take that step.

I look forward and hope to be working with you soon!
