I work with couples, adults, and teenagers seeking relief from panic attacks, depression and suicidal thoughts, self harm, gender dysphoria, sexual abuse, and childhood trauma and PTSD.
You’re overwhelmed, overstimulated, and searching for relief, and quite frankly, getting pretty desperate. That "best life" others seem to live feels just beyond reach, with a little progress one day, then sliding all the way back to where you started. It’s exhausting. You logically know you’ve overcome so much, but where is that strength everyone says you have? Together, we can foster compassion for the coping skills you’ve used to survive. These strategies deserve acknowledgment and appreciation because they have kept you alive.

I use a trauma-informed approach when working with clients, and specialize in body-based and psychosensory techniques, including brainspotting, safe and sound protocol, nurturing touch technique, and expressive art therapies.
Wouldn’t it be nice if life felt like taking a well-traveled path – full of signs, directions and even tour guides to help us when we get lost? For many of us, life does not feel that way; it can even feel like we took a wrong turn along the way, and suddenly we are on a cliff-edged trail that is getting narrower and narrower. When we experience chronic stress – whether it be from trauma, relational issues, anxiety, depression or even sensitivity – life can feel hard. As pressure mounts, we can find ourselves reacting to daily experiences through outbursts of emotion, impulsivity, agitation or even numbing out.

I have been practicing as a therapist since 2015. I have worked with individuals who are suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, and attachment difficulties. I have extensive experience working with individuals who have suffered childhood abuse. I specialize in depression, anxiety, and trauma utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic theory. I believe that if there is a leaky pipe in the ceiling, the best approach is to figure out what caused that pipe to leak and repair the traumatic experiences.

Most of us are able to go through the motions and present ourselves in a way that is perceived that we have it all together. While on the inside, we could be battling negative self-talk, the overwhelm of day to day life or trauma from the past, and struggling to cope with these big feelings in a healthy way. Maybe we are ready to make a change, but are unsure where to begin.

Finding the courage to explore your past or current situation is the first step to reclaiming your power, confidence, and connection to yourself and others. In working with me, we will partner together as I help by creating an open and safe environment while supporting you to explore your concerns.

I am trauma informed, LGBTQIA+ friendly, love & am experienced with intimate partner/family relationships, offer EMDR, & telehealth services across CA.
You want to live the life you imagined for yourself; however, you find that self-criticism, painful past experiences, & negative feedback from others are taking up most of the space in your head. Your mental & physical energy are drained, leaving you feeling stuck and unmotivated. Your joy & hope are held captive & you find yourself in survival mode doing just what it takes to get through the day. You look at others & long for the success, confidence, & meaningful relationships that they seem to have mastered. You've tried many things (maybe even other therapists) & haven't achieved lasting change.

Also, I have been trained in two different methods of trauma therapy, EMDR and Somatic Psychotherapy, which are also helpful for those with high anxiety.
Do you find yourself back in the same negative situations with the same kind of people, over and over? Are you a 'people pleaser'? Do you take care of everyone else first? I often work with individuals, couples or families that struggle with saying 'no' and setting healthy boundaries. The people I work with generally want to feel more in control of their lives, learn to manage emotions effectively and have better relationships. With teenagers and young adults, I work together with them to bring balance into their lives, specifically because there are currently too many stressors for young people.
