I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults , and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, career issues, or balancing life, and/or relationships problems.
Starting therapy takes bravery. My work is focused on recognizing that bravery the moment you walk through my door and anyone courageous enough to do so deserves respect and support. I hope to guide and empower you, first as a caring human being, and then as a professional, to give you skills to help bring healing on your journey that brings you here. With a complimentary education in the areas of fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness, I take an integrative and holistic approach to my work to help create an overall positive lifestyle change for all my clients.

I have extensive experience working with adults experiencing life transitions, including grief and loss work.
Making a commitment to change can be daunting. Whether you are reaching out to resolve current conflicts of values or conscience, or to improve your relationships with family members, friends or work colleagues, help is available. Together we will identify obstacles and work towards a timely resolution or to the recognition that the goal is not necessarily equilibrium but a healthy striving between what we currently are and what we could be or hope to become. I specialize in treating adults who have experienced trauma, depression and anxiety utilizing an empathic but effective approach to strengthening the healthy inner core.

If you have not had much success so far with therapy and feel that the suggestions have not helped to shift things in your life, I may be a good fit for you. I can help you explore what is contributing to your feeling stuck and overwhelmed and move beyond it towards real healing. I work with children, teens, parents, adults and families. Being a parent myself, I can often bridge gaps between children and parents.

I grew up in the Eastern Coachella Valley, studied U.S. History and Spanish at Scripps College, and received my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Southern California.

My training and experience have focused on working with adults , youth, and families, as well as folks who are trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, or part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Are there parts of yourself you want to work on? Do you find yourself facing anxiety, overthinking/questioning things, feeling misunderstood, or repeating old patterns? By processing feelings, gaining insight, and developing new skills, we can break unhealthy cycles, approach situations, and manage emotions and behavior with greater awareness and ease. I work collaboratively to help clients make sense of the past and progress toward their future goals while building compassion for themselves and others. I strive to see and understand not only who my clients are now, but what they've experienced, and who they are becoming.

Through incorporating my years of experience working with adults , families, couples, children, and adolescents, I plan on assisting those willing through the therapeutic process.
The therapeutic process has been found to be challenging but what is harder to live with is less than a good quality of life. My commitment to assist my client’s can make that therapeutic process less challenging. The commitment and the client’s willingness for change can be a powerful tool to assist with the struggles of mental health. All an individual needs is enough courage to take the first step and reach out to a professional for guidance through the healing process.

What type of Palm Desert 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Palm Desert?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
