I value working with clients facing all kinds of difficulties, but specialize in working with PTSD, anxiety, depression, body acceptance, relationship difficulties, Veterans , sexuality and gender issues.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in delivering evidence-based treatment to individuals throughout all stages of their lives. I have a warm and compassionate approach to therapy, which encourages active collaboration. I have a passion for walking alongside people in the midst of struggle. When you come to therapy, it's like you are trying to climb a mountain. I am not at the top of your mountain but, rather, am on another mountain, offering a different perspective, pointing out potential dangers, and helping you find the most effective path along your journey.

While working in California, Tennessee, England, and Germany, I have worked with addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, multicultural, military families, teenagers, and adults.
My services include regular talk therapy as well as ketamine-assisted psychotherapy where I provide prep and integration sessions along with the experiential ketamine sessions. Typical issues that I work with are anxiety, depression, addiction, life transitions, & relational issues. The goals tend to be how to find deeper connection with self & others, how to relate to yourself better, how to better cope with anxiety, how to navigate a life transition, among other goals. They want a better understanding of themselves & to improve their habits and well-being. I provide a compassionate and nonjudgmental space for us to dive deep.

In pursuing my career in clinical work, my heart has always gravitated towards helping and supporting people who are under served, unseen, and underrepresented in our communities. Whether it be working with youth "in the system" or our military service members- I strive to be a voice for individuals who may not have the space or platform to be heard. I am looking to connect with patients who are ready for a catalyst for change- whether big or small; and who are ready to do the work to change their inner narrative, implement tools learned, make mind-body connections, and start on a journey towards healing.

Who doesn't want freedom in all aspects of life? I believe that true freedom comes from transformation of self from the inside out. We are not on this planet to struggle, rather to find the courage to let our light shine. If you are feeling stuck in your relationships, career, family, or any other aspect of life perhaps it is time for a change. Life is short.

I work well with clients who have experienced unresolved trauma. My preferred treatment modality is EMDR, which I use to treat not only the trauma but the negative cognitions associated with trauma. I find that addiction, anxiety, and depression are often decreased when the trauma is resolved. I have successfully treated clients with: sexual/physical/emotional abuse, phobias, combat trauma, dog attacks, and childhood bullying. I also have expertise in treating children and adults with learning disabilities, as I was a school psychologist for 10 years.

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.

Somatic Science™ uses the scientific method and metacognition to greatly reduce or minimize unhappiness (developmental trauma). We incorporate SE™, the polyvagal theory, parts-work and relational dynamics to this end. In this view, unhappiness is simply being uncomfortable with oneself most or all of the time. It results from adverse childhood experiences (ACE) that cause developmental or persistent trauma. Happiness is simply the absence of suffering - peace, calm and equanimity. The Somatic Science™ approach is goal-oriented and non-pathologizing.

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.
