My work is informed by evidenced based therapies, including mindfulness based compassion therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy.
If you are ready to learn more about yourself and develop a positive path toward growth seeking assistance can help you refocus on what's most meaningful to you. People come to therapy for many reasons, including needing help in handling stressful life transitions, to reduce psychological distress, increase one's self worth and to develop a better understanding of themselves. During therapy, we will explore unhealthy patterns by looking at the interplay between your thoughts, behaviors and emotions and how they affect your daily experiences. You will learn to develop fulfilling relationships, ways to cope in healthier ways, and ultimately live a fulfilling life.

I utilize cognitive-behavioral approaches, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and psychodynamic approaches.
I view therapy as a unique relationship between two people - the therapist and the client. Therapy is a process that fosters acceptance and change of the challenges people face and helps provide clarity. My goal is to help create a safe place to explore thoughts, feelings, and experiences that cause you pain, which may lead to difficulties in relationships, work, and/or daily life. Through this process we will create goals and a plan to reach your specific goals. My approach is genuine, compassionate, and non-judgmental. As a therapist, I bring over 20 years of experience working with individuals from many walks of life.

I integrate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and evidence-based modalities.
I work with people who have been told they're “too sensitive” or “too much,” feel misunderstood, or feel alienated from the mainstream. I work with non-traditional partners looking for a therapist who "gets it." You are not too intense, too sensitive, or too "out there." The whole of you is welcome with me. I tailor my approach to my clients' goals and needs. I believe human beings are complex individuals with unique stories that inform their present reality, behavior, wants and needs, and feelings.

I am a strong advocate for the use of evidenced based treatments and am trained in the following: Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Exposure Therapy including Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention.
I believe the purpose of therapy is to create a safe and validating environment where people can focus on creating a "life worth living". I help facilitate this journey by focusing on both acceptance and change in a warm, interactive and thoughtful fashion. If you are someone who is struggling to manage your emotions and behaviors because of anxiety, depression, or trauma we can work together to define the life you want and overcome the obstacles to it.

I was educated at UC Davis & USF; my specialties include family systems, EMDR, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, crisis management and solution-focused therapy.
Coping with Covid-19 & shelter in place: We’re living in a time of uncertainty, stress and anxiety that is likely once in a lifetime. Survival fears about sickness and death have suddenly surfaced in a manner that most of us have never experienced. For those of us that have pre-existing PTSD, depression or anxiety, those feelings may be particularly amplified. We’re all seeking safety, comfort, and connection during this environment of extreme isolation. In response to these realities, I am offering therapy sessions, including EMDR using Zoom, FaceTime, or phone. Take care of yourselves and take care of one another.

My clinical approach integrates psychodynamic psychotherapy with trauma-informed, evidenced-based practices (CBT, DBT , ACT, MI), focusing on the therapeutic relationship and the client’s inherent strengths as sources of change.
Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. I aim to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In my experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.

In addition, I utilize some DBT approaches, primarily mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation.
Together we will build a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship. Within this dynamic, we will process current & past experiences and any feelings that may arise. Therapy is a process, in which learning and self-insight occurs, and shifts begin to happen. I love supporting folks in connecting with themselves and others, making meaning of their life experiences, and deepening their understanding of themselves in a safe and supportive space which we co-create.
