My caseload is currently full, but I am providing supervision to pre licensed clinicians who can see clients via CalOptima or Cigna and can facilitate a referral for new clients. An intention I carry into my work is to aid clients in healing their relationship with their bodies, whether because of experiences with childhood or complex trauma, from patterns of disordered eating, from being transgender or gender non-conforming, and/or living with chronic pain or chronic illness. All of these experiences can complicate our relationship with our body, but with a safe and supportive space like therapy, we can heal this relationship.

I have worked with transgender individuals at all levels of awareness and can comfortably and respectfully navigate this complex path with compassion and understanding.
Life is full of difficulty and uncertainty, as a therapist, I work towards creating a safe space for my clients to explore themselves and their relationships. I enjoy working with individuals and couples to help them heal through self discovery. My hope is to provide them with the necessary understanding to create change and minimize suffering. I invite my clients to explore their earliest relationships to help them identify how those experiences may be impacting their current life. I believe by bringing awareness to what is uncounsious, my clients will have a better opportunity to make healthier lasting change with understanding.

To the person in the process of transgender transition, I can offer counseling, education, and empathic acceptance.
Life can sometimes seem a painful and distressing journey. We may struggle with feelings and thoughts and may come to believe people around us do not understand us or appreciate the situation in which we find ourselves. When this happens, it can feel like our goals and and dreams are quickly receding out of reach. We search not only for the reasons for our distress but importantly relief and resolution to bring us back to the calm and safe harbor of our previous state of mind and daily routines. You have tried several approaches and strategies and yet here you are. Nevertheless, each step brings hope and resolution.

My speciality is in the transgender and gender expansive/nonconforming communities, sexuality and gender exploration, ethical nonmonogamy, and beyond.
Perhaps you are brand new to therapy, or returning for better results. Maybe you are looking for a therapist that relates to the LGBTQ+ identities/experiences you have, and how those may affect other areas of your life. You're looking for a space to be authentic and explore complex parts of who you are in a safe, affirming space. You might be experiencing anxiety, depression, confusion, or other barriers to your well-being. My priority is inviting you to share who you are so we can create positive outcomes. I combine evidence-based practices with real-world application, placing your experiences at the forefront of therapy.

In my experience, therapy is most effective when we let down pretenses and be real people with each other. Call or email me and lets talk about what's going on and how I can help. I love helping people to face the things that are holding them back from a good life. I especially love the work I've done helping people save their marriages, lose weight and get healthy, work through old stuff, and get a handle on debilitating anxiety and crushing depression. Therapy really does work. Things can be different.

Life can feel overwhelming when you’re under constant stress, whether it be work-related, family conflict, relationship trouble, or dealing with your inner conflict and fears. Maybe you are not able to live your true authentic self because of the messages and values placed on you by your culture, religion, and society. You want to be seen and heard as your true genuine self and break free from the messages and values that chained you from living your full authentic self.

Life can be challenging, and sometimes we can feel inadequate in dealing with life struggles that come our way. Sometimes we feel like we've tried everything, but for some reason we still feel stuck despite our best efforts. Although there are times in our lives when we feel great, there are also times in our lives when we feel hopeless, anxious, depressed, or even lost. Sometimes, we can pinpoint why we feel this way, and other times, these feelings seem to just come upon us for no apparent reason. Both can make life incredibly difficult.
