Feeling free to be yourself without any pressure is rare these days. I want you to know that you have come to a place where you will never feel judged, unseen or unheard. Whatever you have done, are doing, or will do will not change my perception of you. You can be safe and comfortable to be yourself with me and know that I am here to support you- you are not alone. Change IS POSSIBLE and we can do this together.

Chronic illness sufferers! You know how hard life can feel. Sometimes just getting up in the morning can feel like a monumental task and other times you feel ok. The struggle is never knowing which way it’s going to go. I’ll bet your life would feel easier if you could learn how to cope with this uncertainty, while also finding ways to share your experience with your people. So many of us (yes, us!) attempt to hide our struggles for fear of being looked at as “the sick one” and that takes a toll. Working through your own judgements and anger will help to shift the way you walk through life...even on days you feel like crawling.

My passion lies in supporting those of all ages and identity backgrounds who are interested in self exploration and discovery. I practice from a trauma informed, sex-positive, queer affirming, feminist, spiritual and social justice-oriented standpoint. Understanding how the “personal is political” and how psychological challenges are rooted in systemic oppression is central to my work. My experience in sexual/reproductive healthcare and working as a birth and postpartum doula catalyzed my interest in supporting those undergoing vulnerability regarding their sexuality, pain, pleasure, health, gender identity and life transitions.

Sometimes we feel off. We know ourselves well enough to know “something needs to change,” but progress feels unclear or scary and we get stuck. There can be no change without awareness. I view therapy as a tool for just that: increased understanding of our inner and outer worlds. I primarily use a psychodynamic approach to guide exploration and confront the realities that inform you and that may be holding you back. We’ll start with clarity about what those are. With compassion and great care for safety we’ll continue to uncover your personal strengths that equip you with the self-confidence to navigate your life and relationships.

Avoid the commute and try Online therapy! I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). A very effective and helpful therapy that cuts talk time in half, and focuses on releasing present and past emotional distress. I also use the latest mindfulness techniques, among others, to provide you with a personalizad and comprehensive treatment. It is not uncommon for someone to find themselves in a state of emotional reaction, due to negative childhood experiences, life challenges, trauma or constant relationship problems. This is not only an emotional response, but a physical and spiritual one as well.

I provide a safe and nonjudgmental environment for my clients. I believe that my job as a therapist is to work in a partnership with clients in learning more about themselves, resolving past pain and then achieving personal happiness. I do not believe in forcing my lifestyle or goals on a client but rather helping them find out who they are, what goals they have for themselves and what positive and healthy ways they can achieve these goals. Personal growth and happiness is a goal that is unique to each individual. There is not just one way to achieve happiness.

I incorporate my intuition, creativity, sensitivities, & bubbly spirit to facilitate a space to connect to your inner knowing, & to heal what brought you to this search. Occasionally, you may protect yourself by going on autopilot & moving through the motions. Pain can manifest through avoidance, dissociation, depression, or anxiety to bury it until we have the space & tools to actively & intentionally heal. It is a learning process to remember how to truly connect to our intuition that can become entangled behind our masks, roles, responsibilities, & expectations.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and am also certified as a Psychoanalyst. I am thus trained on two fronts: both with difficulties inherent in couples relationships--including communication, anger, betrayal, and pre- and post-marital problems--and also with individual personal difficulties including depression, anxiety, fears, and addictions. Most emotional problems have their basis in current or past personal relationships. Good therapy involves a clear understanding and honoring of the many complex issues involved. I deeply respect the emotional struggles and the difficult decisions which bring many people to therapy.

Do you have trouble with anxiety, depression, and relationship/family issues due to trauma? Past experiences can create imprints onto your brain that activate your fight/flight responses whenever your emotions feel dysregulated, but life without the constant feeling of being on edge is possible. Those traumatic memories don’t have to permanently influence who you are meant to be. Through therapy, you will gain control of your feelings/thoughts and your response to everyday life hurdles. Healing from trauma can create healthier beliefs about yourself and your relationships along with sustainable changes.

I am a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist specializing in assessing adults with concerns about their memory and other cognitive abilities. Although my clinical interests are broad, I am particularly passionate about reducing risk for cognitive decline and improving overall health through lifestyle modification. I have lectured extensively on the power that exercise, healthy diet, quality sleep, psychological well-being, and staying cognitively and socially active have on maintaining/improving cognitive functioning both now and as we age.

Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family, work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

How on earth do you choose from all these therapists? We must all start to sound alike! I recommend you call at least 3-5 of us, or email even more, and trust your gut feeling. It's important to help you feel emotionally safe with me, in order to share your struggles, so that you don't have to carry them alone anymore. I strive to help you get to the root of your pain, in order to heal it, rather than put a band aid on it. Many people seem to believe that they will have to carry the effects of prior trauma forever. I want you to know that is not the case. You CAN heal.

What type of Fullerton 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 Fullerton?
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.
