Do you often find yourself agreeing to things you don’t like or don't want to do? Have you had enough of being overly accommodating in order to please others at the cost of your own wellbeing, without much of a return? Isn't it time to break this endless cycle and stop pleasing everyone but yourself? I’m here to help. As your psychologist, I’ll provide you with a safe judgment-free space to be vulnerable, where we can discuss your situation and examine your habits that are making it hard for you to stop pleasing others. During our sessions, you can feel heard and empowered to start living your life for yourself, and not others.

TEENS - your happy outgoing child has been replaced by a secretive/withdrawn, irritable/defiant teenager, creating worry, anxiety, chaos. You find yourself reacting to your teen, rather than enjoying a happy family. You've tried everything - bribery, setting boundaries, making demands, hurling threats. It's only gotten worse. Worried over the cause of your teen's change - addiction, (alcohol or drug abuse), ADD/ADHD, body image/ self esteem issues (anorexia, bulimia, cutting, weight) bullying, maybe your pending divorce...anxiety, depression, school, suicide attempts, suicide of a friend or family member...

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 any obstacles 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.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist and author in Orange County California I have worked with many clients with self esteem and identity issues, relationship conflicts as well as those with mild anxiety and depression. I am a former Clinical Director of several treatment facilities and private practices. I like to build rapport and understand my client before we determine next steps. Sometimes it can be a perception change and the person can move forward with few sessions and at other times we may need more sessions to address self sabotage patterns, coping skills, etc..as we set a collaborative plan based on your needs.

I have extensive experience with eating disorders, trauma, depression, anxiety, poor body image, self-harm, relationship problems, life transitions, grief, and low self esteem .
I believe that asking for help is the most challenging and brave thing you can do for yourself. Sometimes our struggles can be too big to handle on our own and I am here to create space for you to feel safe, worthy, and to assure you that it's okay to not be okay all the time. I will guide you through releasing the pressure of self-doubt, of comparison, of other’s opinions, of unrealistic expectations, of negative thoughts, of believing that you’ll never be enough because- you already are enough.

Prior to entering clinical counseling, I served in the U.S. Navy till 1999 & graduated from San Jose State University with an English B.A 2005. The experience, however, of working with students with various challenges -trauma, overlooked mental health issues, abuse, learning disabilities, and family conflicts- would steer me in a different direction. After receiving my Clinical Psychology M.A. from John F. Kennedy University in 2011, I gained experience in crisis counseling, K-12 school-based counseling, college counseling, & residential for dual diagnosis clients before becoming licensed in 2017.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
