Do you feel like something inside is broken? Do you feel less-than-whole emotionally, physically or in relationships and want to learn to put the pieces together to create your optimal life? Do you feel like your own worst enemy, tearing yourself down with negative self-talk? This is where I come in. Working together as your guide, I help you learn the skills, insights and strategies so that when future situations arrive, you will learn to trust yourself to confront challenges mindfully and compassionately. I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California and have worked with a range of clients from those with acute crises to those who want a mental health accountability partner to check in with. I’m a holistic psychotherapist who takes the time to make sure you are on the best path to healing. I approach the practice of therapy as a mutual relationship, one that is based on integrity and trust. I conduct each session with a calm, empathetic and attuned presence. My goal is to provide a safe container for you to fully experience all parts of yourself and to foster your personal growth.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I will work with you as a partner in your wellness journey. In the beginning sessions, I want to work collaboratively to create a safe space for you to feel heard, validated and empowered to share your story. Throughout each session, we will create concrete goals based on what brought you to therapy and on the insights we discover in sessions together. Although we will have actionable goals for you to achieve, I will always be flexible in meeting you where you are.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My approach is eclectic; it is client-centered, culturally sensitive and is informed by the innate strengths each client brings to therapy. I use a mixture of treatment methods and interventions from traditional psychotherapeutic modalities to mindfulness and evidence-based practices. Having a breadth of knowledge, training and hands-on experience allows me to pull tools and modalities that are customizable to each client.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My strength comes from the therapeutic relationship I build with my clients. Once we have a relationship built on trust, the sky is the limit on what you can achieve.
