Let's Connect (760) 268-9104
As a clinical psychologist, I aim to help you achieve personal growth and well-being. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), employing mindfulness and other empirically-supported approaches to help you process and manage painful emotions as well as overcome the self-defeating patterns which often arise following the experience of traumatic events. I also specialize in relational and mindfulness-based approaches to treating interpersonal difficulties, depression, anxiety, and grief and loss while helping you to manage stress, academic difficulties, self-esteem issues, and life transitions.
I deeply value the therapist-client relationship and will work collaboratively and compassionately with you to explore the nature of your difficulties, gain a deeper understanding of problematic patterns, and determine how best to address them so that you may move forward, toward a more meaningful, fulfilling life.
I have extensive clinical experience with a wide range of mental health concerns, and have worked with diverse clientele in multiple types of settings, including VA Hospitals, Camp Pendleton, and college counseling. I look forward to meeting you as you begin the path toward positive change in your life.
