Welcome! As a therapist I am passionate about providing gender-affirming care to individual adults who are transgender , non-binary, gender-expansive, or gender-questioning. I also support individuals with experiences of queer sexualities and have specialized training in grief and loss. My priority is to create a supportive and safe space to help you discover the path toward living your authentic life in a safe way. Whether that means exploring gender or sexuality in an affirming space, finding the right resources, developing tools for coping with difficult experiences, or healing from past emotional wounds, I am here to help.

I have worked directly with members of the LGBTQ community, people of color, and the elderly.
There are many reasons why you might be looking for a therapist: help with a long term struggle, support during a current life situation, and/or your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know how important it is to find a therapist you can develop a solid relationship with. In our work together we will come to understand more about what isn't working. You may be feeling stuck, sad, alone, consumed by rage, or unsatisfied. You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you feel safe to talk about yourself openly.

RtW is committed to providing its therapeutic services to a diverse community of those in recovery in Santa Cruz; we proudly serve trans , non-binary and gender diverse clients, clients of various sexual orientations, as well as those from a wide array of cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, and racial backgrounds.
Ride The Wave Recovery offers group, individual, and family therapy to clients of all genders and sexualities living with or in recovery from eating disorders, addictions, codependency, co-occurring trauma and ADHD. "Ride the wave" reminds us that sorrow, pain, happiness, triggers, relapses, slips, high highs, low lows, and everything in-between need not be waves that consume us, overtake us, define us, or drown us; rather we can gently and skillfully navigate these waves, from the surface, as if on a psychological surfboard, with the help of others, our Wise Mind, our Higher Power, or Self keeping us afloat.

Some common issues I specialize in are: perinatal mood/ anxiety disorders, military life adjustments, trauma, anxiety, addiction, pathological love relationships, grief/loss, domestic abuse, divorce, blended families, teen / adult dating issues and LGBT +.
I wholeheartedly believe it’s my role as a therapist to assist you in realizing, cultivating, and accessing internal and external resources that you already possess. I'm here to support you in healing, reconnecting and making empowering choices to achieve peace and feel more joy on a daily basis. Stress, conflict, and pain are given aspects of this life. Together, we will create a safe space for vulnerability and strength; both are needed for change. Our sessions will allow you to move through stuck points in your mind, relationships and environment. My approach is empathic, direct, emotionally supportive and solutions focused.

I am LGBTQIA + affirming and supporting.
Hello! I’m so glad you found me. My approach to therapy is to engage the whole person in order to integrate the mind and body. Movement in therapy can range from focusing on breath to self-lead movement expression, and can be used with any age and ability. Artistic expression is used to deepen the therapeutic work through the creative process. I view my clients holistically and utilize the knowledge I gain regarding their life history and their social atmosphere to guide them in therapy. I work collaboratively with my clients to make meaningful change, respecting my clients’ individuality and autonomy.

I work with individuals in both brief and longer-term psychotherapy. I practice integrative therapy that is strongly grounded in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused approaches. I strive to help clients increase awareness of thoughts and feelings, gain a better understanding of how their past contributes to their development, and gain skills in coping with stress and changing behaviors. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which the client and therapist work together to develop goals and treatment plans.

I believe that each person has a unique purpose. Life presents with situations where depression, addiction, anxiety, eating too much, eating too little, low self-esteem, and no self-identity can distract a person from finding this unique purpose. I like to explore a variety of issues that keep you from experiencing your purpose in life and help you find your meaning and make sense of that meaning.

People find their way to therapy for various reasons. You may be in a crisis or you may want to work on long-standing behaviors that are no longer working for you. Maybe negative self-talk is getting in your way, or repeating the same behavior expecting different results and aren't sure how to make the necessary changes. Therapy is a process, finding the right therapist is important. I offer a free phone consultation to help you in your search.
