As a spouse of 15 years, I have experience with the stress that occurs within our military community.
Often, it’s too much to think, be in your head and deal with toxic relationships. Then, in thinking or feeling, or a pattern of behavior or choices that are ultimately harmful. This can lead to a feeling of heaviness and oppression about the future, allow yourself the freedom to imagine a future filled with possibilities and opportunities. I will help you unpack the history of the problematic behavior and help you see how you actually feel about it. I intend to help you better understand the motivation underneath the patterns of thinking and behaviors that make you feel trapped and overwhelmed.

I have over 20 years of experience as a therapist. I truly understand how difficult it can be to ask for help. Many feel uncomfortable & anxious when seeking help from a counselor about such sensitive & personal issues. It takes courage and faith to reach out. I believe together we will find real solutions to your struggles.

My passion is to help individuals, veterans , first responders, teens and children heal and live an empowered, peaceful and complete life.
Feeling pain, or feeling lonely and sad? Or maybe you feel emptiness. A huge hole of emptiness and you have no idea how to fill it. Life can be hard. Even when we do our very best, sometimes it just doesn't feel like it's enough. We can have feelings of pain, sadness, anxiety and other hard feelings we try to ignore and push away. Maybe you best is never good enough and you're tired of trying. Feelings of abandonment, emotional neglect, failure, bullying and traumas can stay with us throughout our lives until we seek out healing. We can embark on this journey healing together. I'm here to help.

I spent the bulk of my training working with dual-diagnosis veterans at the West Los Angeles VA, a group who values a transparent, straight-forward approach to therapy.
Finding a therapist can be a stressful process. The majority of my clients are brand new to therapy and appreciate having someone who can lead them through the process. I tailor my approach to the client, whether it be long-term care or shorter, more solution-focused therapy.

As a systemic therapist, I take a collaborative and humanistic approach as I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families. To better understand an individual's worldview, meeting them where they are and understanding their perspectives, and presenting problems that have brought them to seek therapy is essential. So, connecting with people through a humanistic approach allows us to comprehend one another through fundamental connections that we share, such as emotions and sensations. Through collaboration and authenticity, I utilize myself as a tool through dynamic conversations and applying skills to encourage change.

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard-feelings of fear, failure, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle alone is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.

What type of Irvine 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Irvine?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
