With over 20 years of professional experience and after years of private practice, I left the therapy world when I discovered the opportunity to advocate for individual and families. As a Therapeutic Consultant, my primary goal was to help individuals find the best fit for interventions for mental and physical health care. I soon discovered that the best fit can't happen without good diagnostics first. A team approach is the heart of our program, uncovering what is truly wrong, or right, about your body, mind, spirit, and lifestyle. Our concierge evaluation program provides one-on-one diagnostics and world-class care and support.

Problems such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief, worry and conflict can make it hard to live the life we desire. My aim is to help people take their lives back from problems. Through exploration of what values and preferences are most important to you, we can find ways to reclaim your life from the problems that are harassing you and your relationships in order to promote new possibilities and ways of being.

I grew up moving around the world and saw a universal theme emerge: people desire to be fully known and loved. When pain, fear, shame and conflict prevent us from connecting to our true self, we feel alone - unable to fully give and receive love. I provide quality, professional counseling for people of all races, ages, and persuasions. If you feel that your life's path is in need of direction, I would love the opportunity to meet you! I offer an initial complimentary phone call so you can determine if I'm a fit for your needs.

It’s hard to tune out those inner critics that leave us feeling not good enough, alone, and hopeless. Sometimes we have difficult thoughts and experiences we have never shared with anyone that also leave us feeling nervous, disconnected and depleted. What if you could take all that negativity and use it to fuel creativity? A kind of creativity that offers healing and liberation from the hurt- one that allows movement when we are stuck. In therapy with me you will express yourself with more than just talk. My approach is empathic, gender affirming, culturally humble, LGBTQIA+ celebrating, radically accepting, and direct.

Beginning therapy can feel daunting. I provide a safe and secure place for you to feel comfortable and begin to gently explore what's keeping you stuck or feeling hopeless. I believe that empathy, acceptance and authenticity are the the keys to building a trusting therapist-client relationship. Together we will explore patterns that are no longer working for you, or preventing you from personal growth and healing. I am passionate about embarking on your personal journey of self awareness. I draw on a variety of orientations including Emotion Focused, CBT, and psychodynamic theories and practice in order to meet each client's needs.

As an EMDR therapist at Q Psychology Group, I focus on trauma recovery. Trauma is not just an event that happened in the past, but an experience that has imprinted on our mind, brain, and body which impacts us in the present. This can interfere with the way we connect emotionally, physically, and spiritually to ourselves and to others. To aid in recovery from this experience, I look to enhance the mind-body connection so you can regain safety in your body. I do this by utilizing a polyvagal and nervous system approach, where I focus on giving you the tools to understand and regulate your own nervous system.

A big part of our work is related to health psychology, working with patients with chronic illness , disability, and pain management.
One of the most important aspects in therapy is for patients to feel heard, respected, and understood. Given that each individual is unique, and no one issue is ever the same among different people, our approach is integrative and tailored to meet the needs of the person, not the "problem". we strive to create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for patients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and to live the life they want to be living. We specialize in working with adults - individual, couples, and family - with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, and LGBTQ issues.

My professional experience includes working with adolescents, adults and couples dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, chronic illness , PTSD, family conflict, relationship issues, women's issues, life transition and pet loss grief.
Life is hard sometimes and it's OK to need help along the way! Therapy is a great place to get the unbiased support you need. So many people live their lives feeling effects of depression, anxiousness or loneliness, feeling stuck, lost, or that something just isn't sitting right. Those feelings don't have to be carried around with you every day.

What type of El Segundo mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in El Segundo?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
