Do you wonder why you have a big reaction to the small things in life? Seeking therapy, whether for the first time or the tenth time, takes courage and strength. I have heard from clients that even with cognitive insight they have remained stuck in distressing feelings/situations. I strongly believe that living coping skill to coping skill is not a viable long-term solution. Through personal experience, I have ascertained that knowledge of the root cause to a reaction or behavior is paramount to healing. I will not see you as a compilation of symptoms or a diagnosis, but rather as a person with needs that you are trying to get met.

All of a sudden you remember that you have to do this. That thing that is so important to get to, that you have yet to do. The thing that you don’t really want to do. If only you could put it off your head. So now you’re keeping yourself busy to avoid doing it. But the more you avoid doing it the worst you feel. Why can’t you just make yourself do it! And just like that you’re on edge again. The uneasiness will follow all day long now. Then the negative thoughts come. “Everyone will know” “I cannot fail” “What is wrong with me”. The more you think about it, the worst it gets, the worst you feel. You used to handle it on your own.

I’m here to help you on your journey to find your essence, build meaningful connections, and guide you on your path in life. We receive so many messages on the “right” way to do things, but most of the time we feel unsure and overwhelmed. I use a collaborative approach to understand your values, develop your own way of living and figure out how to use your strengths and imperfections to your advantage. Finding a therapist that clicks can be a tiresome task. My approachable nature, clinical knowledge, and experience with diverse populations allows me to easily connect with people at different stages in life.

I want to applaud you for the courageous act of saying “Yes” to yourself by seeking out professional support. While this can be a necessary step in the journey towards healing, I recognize for many of us, it can be an intimidating ( and even scary) step, to say the least. Whether it's the feeling of anxiety overtaking you, depression debilitating you, or just the stresses of life overwhelming you, you are not alone! My hope is to create a safe space for your emotional pain and help you not only get "unstuck", but to explore together how you got derailed in the first place.

If you’re reading this page, my guess is that you’ve finally had enough, and finally feel ready to reach out for help. How you feel about yourself doesn’t align with how you’d like to feel, and your relationships aren’t turning out the way you hoped they would. You worry so much that you worry about worrying, and you get lost in made-up scenarios of "what if..." Maybe you aren’t sure how to ask for what you want, and declare what you need. Maybe you grew up in a home where your family didn't take good care of you, or someone you trusted betrayed you. Past pains still hurt, and you aren’t sure how to heal. You're in the right place!

My approach blends mind-body awareness, mindfulness, transpersonal and existential psychology, and Internal Family Systems ( IFS ).
Our world is in an extreme state of uncertainty which can tax our existing coping strategies, shed light on unhelpful habits, and challenge us with fundamental questions about ourselves and our place in the world. I work with clients wanting to lean into these issues and offer a warm presence as they explore what’s happening underneath. Typically, I work with those struggling with trauma, depression, and/or anxiety, wanting to untangle the influences of their past. I also offer support to those that are dabbling with psychedelics by providing risk reduction and integration.

I provide a safe, supportive relationship where you can explore issues and grow without judgment. I draw from several psychotherapeutic approaches and use what clients are comfortable with yet challenged by such as: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, Attachment theory, Psychodynamic therapy, group psychotherapy, existential/spiritual exploration, mindfulness meditation and addiction relapse prevention and recovery. I only see clients by video. I find it just as effective as face-to-face and you have the comfort of home and no traffic.

Like any relationship, it is hard to find someone that fits into your life and works well with what you bring into the partnership. I bring openness and honestly into the room along with a bit of humor and straightforwardness.

Two years in and Covid is driving us all at least a little crazy. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and I work through a depth-psychology lens to pinpoint and heal developmental and trauma wounds by identifying unconscious/subconscious thoughts that create the symptoms that lead you to therapy. Meanwhile, I simultaneously provide knowledge and tools to empower and guide you to discovery of your true Self. During the pandemic I experienced and then trained in brainspotting, which I use in person, online, and over the phone to nuke the source of stubborn symptoms that have not responded to traditional talk therapy.

At times when we feel overwhelmed, it seems easiest to escape or run away. The challenge with this is that even with a fresh start, the emotions still linger. I would like to sit with you and process these uncomfortable feelings and find ways to cope with seemingly impossible circumstances. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. I work from a person-centered approach, believing my clients have the skills and strength within to grow and thrive.

Are you overwhelmed? Stuck in grief, overthinking, care-giving, or burn out from chronic pain or illness? Are you or your loved ones repeating patterns and you wish you could break the cycle? Maybe little things just feel more stressful than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, break unwanted patterns, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

Having issues with your teens? Don't worry it's not you. The adolescent years can be brutal, especially for teens today who feel pressured by their peers and social media. As Dr. Stephen Illardi points out, we simply weren't designed to live in such a fast-paced plugged in society. I help teens navigate thoughts and emotions that overwhelm them so that they can feel confident in their skin. The teens I work with go on to enjoy both emotional and academic success. I work with women as well. If you're going through a major life transition like divorce, career change, or postpartum challenges, I'd love to work with you!

Pregnancy, birthing, and early parenting are physically and emotionally life altering transitions. For many families they can be a mix of immense joy and overwhelming suffering. If you are struggling with infertility or loss, the road to parenthood is even more emotionally burdensome. Trained in maternal mental health, I help women and couples work through the challenges of difficulty conceiving, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, and early parenting. I help the whole family to develop resources, make meaning out of your experiences, transform your identity, and forge supportive and loving relationships within your family unit.

What type of Northridge 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 Northridge?
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.
