Hello and welcome. I have over 30 years of experience working in the health field and have provided services in a wide range of mental health settings. The patient/client populations I have had the opportunity to help run the full gamut of mental health needs from the serious mentally ill to the person/family who have never needed to see a therapist until "now".

I have experience working with adolescents, transitional age youth, adults and older adults dealing with mood disorders, anxiety, psychosis, trauma, personality disorders, developmental disorders, and substance use as well as with those going through life transitions and struggling finding their way.
Whether you have been struggling with mental health problems most of your life or are experiencing some personal hardships and are looking for help, you have come to the right place. Be proud of yourself for recognizing that what's going on is not working for you and reaching out for support. The journey might not be easy but the goal is to help you have a life that you find meaningful and fulfilling.

I am a psychotherapist committed to providing culturally appropriate mental health services for the BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and Spanish-speaking community. My work focuses on helping adults struggling with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance use /abuse, trauma, and attachment disorders. I also work with youth (16-25 years old) with prodromal schizophrenia. Mental wellness is not often talked about, dealt with or even addressed at all, particularly in BIPOC communities. If you are struggling with any of this, I'm here to help.

I have experience in anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, ADHD, substance use , codependency, narcissistic abuse and recovery.
We all have our own unique stories. However, we all share the human experience of facing challenges, difficulties, even trauma, in our lives. It is normal to feel fear, worry, sadness, or grief. But when overwhelming emotions or maladaptive behaviors interfere with our functioning, relationships and general well-being, seeking professional help can be the most significant step toward transforming your life. If you are struggling, know that you are not alone nor must you do so on your own. There is no shame in prioritizing mental health. It takes strength and courage to make this investment and commitment to yourself.

I have experience with the challenges that come with understanding depression and anxiety, family issues, career changes, interpersonal relationships, sex and intimacy, receiving identity and gender affirming care, grief and loss support, and addiction and substance use treatment affecting individuals and their loved ones.
You have found the voice of an online therapist inspired by the swells of the Pacific Ocean! I not only have a personal love of ocean culture but also a special interest in increasing our power by creating meaning and healing through finding balance and connection with ourself, others, and our surroundings. I specialize in trauma-focused interventions. I believe in strategies that inform us and support life transitions, help us understand the mind/body connection, and lend to increased awareness and insight of coping habits that no longer serve us and free us from the burden of of our own suffering.

I have experience working with adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, trauma, substance use , and other personal challenges. I have a warm and caring approach with my clients, and I value personal preferences in the therapy experience.

You're doing it all - online yoga classes, meal-prepping, killing it at work, and making the best sourdough starter on this side of the Colorado River. But when you hit the pillow at night - there's a loneliness, a deep dissatisfaction, anxiety, a stirring discontentment. On the surface, you've got your shit together, but deep down - your life is being hijacked by your self-judgment, anxiety, negative beliefs, and the inner saboteur. Are you ready to get out of your own way so that you can finally enjoy relationships, work, and family? Your heart wants to be held and we were never meant to do this alone.
