About Me

Hello!!

I believe that we all are unique and have the ability to heal through real connection. Building a therapeutic relationship can provide another perspective or tools to help you achieve real change. 

I have diverse clinical experience with adolescents, young adults, women, and families dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. I am also passionate about creating a safe space for the LGBTQ community. 

I earned my B.A. in Psychology from Chapman University and received a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #108718 as well as a Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor #2476.

 

My Approach

In therapy with me, you will be learning more about what keeps you stuck and what tools will help you move forward in your career, relationships and personal life. I am genuine, open-minded, light-hearted, and love connecting with others on a deeper level. I am trained in psychodynamic therapy which allows us to understand our unconscious motivations of our current behaviors. I can be directive and offer tools, however, I will always meet you where you are at in your own process. My approach is eclectic, pulling from different modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectal behavior therapy (DBT), somatic therapy and mindfulness. 

 

What to Expect

The first few sessions, you and I will be getting to know each other and will come up with common goals for therapy. Therapy sessions are weekly for 50 minutes at a time.
