I work primarily with children, teens, and adults who have suffered traumatic events. I provide an outlet without judgement, helping clients work through unresolved feelings about past childhood trauma, family conflict, and broken relationships, which can cause significant distress, affecting other parts of their lives. I will help you break away from anything that is holding you back from being the person you truly desire to be. My style is eclectic, supporting individual needs, unlocking and developing each person's potential. With children and teens, I use Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist clients in overcoming negative effects of the traumatic experience.

Life sure can have its' ups and downs, this is true for all of us! Life can also be exciting and fun, as well as frustrating and painful. Life challenges can make us feel stuck, emotionally drained, ineffectual, and even hopeless. We all have strengths but sometimes we lose sight of them and feel lost, maybe alone. Therapy and the therapeutic relationship can support you in navigating an array of obstacles, finding clarity, opening up new possibilities, and moving toward a more fulfilling and balanced life!

I believe that relationships are the cornerstone to mental wellness. They are the greatest source of pain, growth and healing. Because of this, I see my role as a therapist as an active relational partner in a client’s process toward change. I hold genuine curiosity that drives me to dive deep into each client on a fundamental level. I hold strong value for each person’s story and I have found that telling your story is often where healing begins. I strive to create a safe space that invites you to face the dark places of your story, to highlight your resilience and cultivate empowerment.

Oftentimes in life when we’re struggling, we can feel an overwhelming sense of disconnection: from ourselves, from others, from life. I work with clients on reconnecting to their lives in a way that feels personally meaningful and aligns with their identified goals. My approach offers a balance of learning concrete coping techniques to help get some relief from painful mental health symptoms while also exploring the underlying patterns and beliefs that can be fueling these symptoms.

On the outside it seems like you have everything together, but inside you feel unhappy and stuck. Instead of thriving, you are overwhelmed and exhausted. Part of you feels like you just can't manage it all. You spend your days feeling sad, irritated, and afraid. You wonder if you have the ability to heal and move through the obstacles in your way. Maybe you've experienced a trauma and you feel like you can't move forward in your relationships.

*Currently accepting new clients* You’ve worked hard on yourself, to overcome loss, addiction or trauma. You know in your head that you’re a good person…but your head hasn’t managed to convince your heart. You can’t shake the nagging thoughts: “I’m a failure,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not worthy of love.” Your unresolved “stuff” – the anxiety, PTSD, trauma – keeps popping up and causing you trouble. Relationships are hard. You can’t really relax. Anger eats at you. You’re tired of feeling “stuck” and uncomfortable in your own skin. What you really want is to finally feel at peace.

We are meant to work together if you are in one of the following categories: 1.) The Frustrated Adult fed up with continuing to hold yourself back from improving your life. Your mind gets in your way of believing you can create a more fulfilling and satisfying existence, and your behavior stays the same. Or, 2.) The Couple who loves each other & wants to finally ACT like they love each other, and stop the awful cycle they’ve been stuck in for years. An endless feedback loop of the same infuriating fights and seemingly hopeless & tiring perpetual problems keep invading your love and joy.

The work you and I will do together is focused on your goals and needs and capitalizes on your strengths. My assessment process takes into account the biological, psychological, social, emotional, spiritual, and cultural aspects of your life. Once that assessment is completed, you and I will explore the issues and needs that you are trying to manage by utilizing a "motivational interviewing" approach. We then work to discover the maladaptive behaviors and coping mechanisms; and explore healthy, productive, and strengths-based strategies for getting these needs met.

What type of Grover Beach 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 Grover Beach?
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.
