My areas of interest include LGBTQ +, trauma, life transitions, anxiety, depression, and school/work functioning.
*I currently have a waitlist and may not respond to therapy inquiries.* Feeling understood, supported, and safe are key aspects of the therapeutic relationship. The process of therapy also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences and provide you with skills to improve your relationships with others and yourself. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently navigate what is bothering you most.

Though I mostly identify as a "generalist" I do have specialized training working with LGBTQ + populations.
It is not easy to recognize when you might need help, and even harder to reach out to others during difficult times. I am sensitive to the difficulty of the therapy process and do my best to honor each person individually. Being culturally sensitive and competent in meeting the diverse needs of all of my clients is one of my biggest values as a psychologist. I value social justice and this informs my work immensely.

I have experience working with the LGBTQ + and Latinx community and BIPOC.
Life can be difficult sometimes. You may be struggling with your relationships and with balancing responsibilities. Life can make you feel stressed, overwhelmed, and leave you with little energy for yourself. Therapy can be a place where you can get the support to navigate life and grow. I believe that sometimes we need some help to manage so that we can live healthier lives. Together we can work on developing a plan that works best for you to help you achieve your goals. We can identify challenges that have impacted you, learn to heal and move forward stronger, healthier and more confident.

Do you have “sticky” self-defeating thoughts that won’t leave you alone? Do you “know” you’re good enough but don’t “feel” it? Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us. I truly believe that we all have the power to grow and heal within us; sometimes we just need a little guidance and specialized tools to get started. I can help you gain strength, motivation, resiliency, and a deeper compassion for yourself and your journey.

My work focuses on emotional and personal development, where there is space to feel, explore, find insight, and confront challenges. I have special interests in highly sensitive people (HSP) work, couples work, trauma, biracial concerns, and anxiety. I believe therapy is about building a stronger sense of self through empathy, insight and symptom relief. I will be there to provide understanding, support and a different view of the problem that makes progress attainable and installs hope. Therapy provides an opportunity to grow as a person, get through personal struggles including mental illness, and strengthen relationships.

A few years ago I read a joke: "Fish don't know they're in the water". The scenario is that Fish Number One asks Fish Number Two, "How's the water?" Fish Number Two responds, "What the hell is water?". The fish who is "in" the situation (hence the water) does not even realize its surrounding. Second what surrounds you is only normal because it's what you know. I got another one that I recently came across: "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." This references to dream analysis but it basically mean that our preconceptions can dramatically alter the way we perceive the world. (Quote is by writer Anais Nin).

What type of Los Alamitos 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 Los Alamitos?
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.
