Spirituality is also the foundation of many of our lives, and I have experience working with clients from a faith-based approach, integrating Christian values to promote healing.
Hi! We all feel stuck in life sometimes, which can often bring out hopelessness. Life’s challenges are part of our personal growth, and I am passionate about helping others overcome those obstacles that can otherwise feel impossible. I have extensive experience working with individuals struggling with eating disorders, supporting them and their families in finding hope and recovery. I also work with families and couples in strengthening relationships and improving communication, and with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and general life dilemmas.

As a trauma survivor myself and as an experienced Christian EMDR therapist, I believe that my Attachment based approach will help guide you into personal freedom and hope.
Unresolved trauma leaves us feeling broken, damaged and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with how trauma or PTSD is impacting your life, feeling discouraged and possibly even exhausted with how much energy it takes to cope on a daily basis. You might not even remember a time when things didn't feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you're ready for some relief. You're ready to find hope and healing. You're ready to find your own personal worth and value. Most of all you're ready to be transformed body, mind and spirit!

In addition to my Doctorate in psychology, I hold a Masters in Christian Leadership.
I throughly enjoy working collaboratively with my clients. As a team, we work on changing negative patterns of: thinking, relating to others and/or themselves, and difficult emotions. I find that the clients who are open to putting into practice new tools and skills are the ones that see the most dramatic changes and see the most improvement. In a safe and supportive environment, my clients are able to make the changes that allow them to accomplish their goals and feel good again. I am thrilled to be part of the process with you!

Life is full of messy tensions. People who are supposed to be the safest let us down. The things we know are good for us can be the most difficult to follow through. At one moment, we feel paralyzed by inaction, and in the next, we can be flooded by thoughts. Sorting through these tensions alone can be scary, frustrating, and exhausting. Therapy can provide the opportunity to disentangle and shed light on these aspects of yourself in a non-judgmental, supportive space. It is my joy and privilege to help clients experience relief from the emotional pain they carry, while also developing a deep understanding of themselves.

I help those in addiction recovery and couples in dull, difficult, and conflicted relationships. It’s grueling for anyone considering divorce because they have lost their passion for their partner, are eternally conflicted, or feeling weighed down in their relationship. You might be worried about how your kids will take the news, if you can financially recover, or even second-guessing if divorce is the right move. I have completed the Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I use the Gottman’s relationship research to help couples develop friendship, manage conflict, and create a meaningful relationship.

Working through difficult experiences and emotions can be challenging. It can be even harder to make desired changes in ones life when certain patterns have been established for so long. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.

You’re worried about your child. You wonder if they need therapy and it’s weighing on you. You’ve tried talking to them, reasoning why their fear doesn’t make sense, but it never seems to make a difference. I help anxious kids & worried parents feel safe and at ease. I get that you just want your child to feel more carefree and express themselves more confidently. Today, you’re searching for a child therapist because you know if you don’t get help, nothing is going to change for your child. And something has got to change. I understand.

I believe symptoms are often the body’s way of communicating with us when something's off. Learning to recognize our symptoms as messages to listen to, we start making sense of the chaos, and feel less out of control. I’m committed to helping you get that kind of relief and clarity, so that it becomes easier to explore the roots of what gets you stuck. The therapy I offer is experiential and relational, providing the context to name what needs to heal, process what's overwhelming, build psychological skills and confidence, grow in compassion, strengthen relationships, and find a path forward with greater freedom, meaning, and hope.

You consider yourself a high achiever, nothing has stood in the way of reaching your goals. In fact, change doesn’t bother you and you haven’t experienced a failure that you couldn’t transition to something better from. Yet, you find yourself stuck in a moment in your life and career that you can’t get out of. You’ve tried everything, positive affirmations, manifesting, but you just feel stuck. The change that needs to happen feels big, like it could unleash hell in your life. Living in this place feels like a slow death to your dreams and ambitions. You can’t seem to figure it out and the fear is beginning to feel paralyzing.

I am passionate about empowering children of all ages to make more thoughtful, informed choices in their life. I have worked with clients navigating grief/loss, anxiety, depression, anger, family changes, cultural and ethnic identity, medical traumas, and other challenges. Through therapy, children are provided with a nonjudgmental, safe space to process their experiences and develop skills and the opportunity to strengthen their psychological fortitude, self identity, and resilience through therapeutic interventions. All of this helps them to more effectively communicate their needs to supportive adults around them.

What type of Encinitas 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 Encinitas?
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.
