About

I'm down to earth and approach therapy collaboratively. As an experienced therapist with 10+ years in private practice, I believe healing is an organic process that is different for each person. My therapeutic style includes providing a space to explore what’s in your heart. I also offer feedback, ideas, and problem solving. Specialties include healing from a breakup, postpartum depression/anxiety, taming the inner critic, understanding dysfunctional family dynamics, grief and loss, and working with creative people.
Clients have described me as 'insightful', 'easy to relate to', and having a 'playful sense of humor' My deepest value as a therapist is creating a safe, non-judgmental space. Life can bring stressors that exceed our capacity to cope sometimes, no matter how strong and resilient we are.
My experience includes working as a behavioral specialist for children and families; Clinical Director at two Community Based Agencies; and a hospital counselor focusing on maternal mental health. I've lived half my life in California and half in Florida. I enjoy hiking, poetry, and learning about different cultures.
