I work with children, teens, young adults, couples, and families to gain insight into what they need to better themselves and live a more balanced life.
It’s already hard enough to sit in feelings of uncertainty, hurt, or frustration. It’s even more difficult to accept vulnerability and reach out for support when we tend to fear judgement. Therapy has been portrayed as a stigma towards mental illness, but there’s more to the therapeutic process than just “treating an illness”. I am here to process emotions and thoughts with you while giving you alternative perspectives to reflect on. Processing released emotions allow relief which then provides me the opportunity to guide my clients in adopting and utilizing new tools and skills towards recovery.

I have worked in community clinics and substance abuse rehabilitation centers for adults with substance abuse disorders and dual diagnoses.
Mental health treatment is still being stigmatized. As a clinician, I see mental health treatment as a wonderful opportunity to grow, reach and actualize one's potential to live the most effective and enjoyable life. I believe we can find that path with you. When I am unable to help you find that path, which is quite possible, I will do my to best to help you find the mental health professional that can be a better fit for you.

I believe childhood experiences create the template for adult life. Early losses, separations and trauma define the choices of strategies or defenses we use as adults. Pain and suffering can be caused by these early experiences. It is my job as a therapist to join my clients in their journey of discovery of these templates and help them to gain a more fulfilled life. I provide individual, couples and family counseling services in both English and Spanish in a safe, comfortable environment. My approach is tailored to each client, to meet them on their journey of discovery to finding a more fulfilled life.

I believe we are born with an inherent bodily wisdom, our "bones of knowing" which helps us to distinguish which experiences allow us to expand or cause us to shrink. We are born with basic primal emotional needs for love, safety and acceptance. For many of us these needs were not met. We often come out of childhood with unmourned losses and a false self or persona. Together we can explore those deeper needs which often underlie symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress and learn to fulfill these needs as they occur in the present, taking responsibility for our own happiness.
