I work with clients ages older adolescent through adulthood.
::CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS:: I believe therapy is a powerful tool for change and personal empowerment. It can be difficult to make the decision to seek support, but I believe starting therapy is a courageous act of self-compassion. I aim to provide a warm, genuine, and collaborative approach when working with clients. I strive to create a connection that allows clients to be themselves and feel safe to work through whatever obstacles are in their path. Utilizing a strengths-based approach, I work with clients to build confidence and skills to navigate life stressors and to create a life they can’t wait to wake up to.

Many of us are striving to feel more productive, peaceful and self-confident. Unfortunately, anxiety, depression, trauma, complex relationships, illness, family problems, poor self-esteem, neurodiversity, or other challenges can inhibit us from achieving our goals. That is why working with a therapist can be a great choice. Teaming up with an attentive, well-trained therapist you will likely feel less alone and your problems will feel more manageable. You might be surprised that when you and your therapist examine your difficulties from new angles, you or your pre/ teen will grow and change in ways you never expected.

I specialize in women's issues from teen issues to menopause.
Are you a woman trying to make sense of life? Being a female has its passions and pitfalls. Physiological and hormonal changes, as well as life stressors can affect our mood at any of our developmental stages. Thus, many of times, making us feel exhausted and unsure of ourselves. Feeling this way does not mean you are losing your mind. It means, you need some assistance in getting past a growing pain in your development, only to emerge with stronger and healthier coping skills.

Is your teen struggling with stress and worry? Do you wish you could help them cope with life's challenges? You may be seeing your teen pushing you away, slipping on their ability to balance their responsibilities, or tell you that they want to talk to someone. You might feel like the last time things didn’t feel this way was when they were younger. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief for your child. You’re ready to see them manage stress effectively. You’re ready to help them get the support that they need and want. Most of all, you’re ready to see them thriving and equipped to take on life’s highs and lows.

I love working with children and adolescents. Before I get a history from you, I like to meet with your teenager to let them feel like they have a choice in picking their therapist. This gives them a sense of control and they are then more committed to the therapy. I will integrate the family as necessary. I have extensive success with children of divorce, those experiencing anxiety, depression, low self esteem and difficulty managing anger. I also connect well with adults and young adults dealing with life transitions.

If you feel like I would be a good fit for you or your child/ teen please do not hesitate to reach out by email, phone or text so that we can schedule a free 20 minute consultation.
Well-being includes being centered in body, mind and spirit; also happiness and health. Therapy can be a journey to reaching a state of balance and self-love. The challenge is to face and overcome the hardships and stressors that have a nasty habit of getting in the way of being our best self. Getting there isn’t always easy, but having someone to support you along the way is a courageous step in the right direction.

I currently also work in an adolescent residential setting and train for UCLA.
Relationships are challenging - even in the best circumstances. This is certainly true when building or maintaining a relationship with someone who may feel stressed, sad, or acting out in anger. Many people today feel overwhelmed, alone, judged or misunderstood. There is hope, though, in that you can be the solution! Through a unique approach, I work with children, teenagers, and adults to develop their sense of selves, decrease stress, and establish rewarding relationships. Having this space has helped many people better understand and manage their lives.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Irvine and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
