My background working with children and their families from preschool to high as an art teacher, mindfulness educator and therapist has provided me with a broad range of modalities that aid clients' nonverbal expression and innate creativity.
I believe that all human beings have the capacity to realize their full potential and to gain insight into life’s difficulties. I tailor my approach based on each unique person's needs and often utilize story-telling, dreams and archetypes as ways to make meaning of significant events. I support individuals in strengthening existing coping skills, developing new methods of support, and identifying patterns and themes in a safe, empathic space.

By utilizing CBT, Mindfulness , and Narrative therapy, We will explore healthy ways to process your trauma, regulate the extreme emotions, restore broken relationships, and discover your other potentials.
Is anxiety, depression, or trauma holding you back from being your true self? Do you feel stuck in managing difficult life transitions? Now, every little thing becomes super overwhelming. Those negative experiences reopen old wounds and cause new ones. You tried burying your pain hoping it would go away. You feel lonely and tormented. You feel exhausted, stressed, and angry all the time. You wonder how much more you can take. You are unsure of who or where to turn for help. In the midst of this painful journey, you do not have to go through it alone.

I draw from evidence-based approaches, such as CBT and mindfulness to help you manage anxiety and depression.
We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

I also assist in your healing process by utilizing CBT, mindfulness , and Solution Focused Therapy.
Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

Some of these include Somatic work, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness approaches.
I believe that you are the expert of your own life. You don't need someone to tell you what to do, and I won't be that person. I will collaborate with you, explore past experiences that have shaped who you are today, and figure out what's keeping you from living the life you want. This isn't always an easy process. It takes courage and hard work, but the rewards are great. I provide an environment that is curious, empathetic, supportive, and down to Earth. I'll help you discover your strengths and become more in-tune with your emotions. You can do this!

My approach is rooted in mindfulness and integrates psychodynamic theory, Jungian psychology, and somatic psychology.
The capacity for healing resides in everyone. Therapy is about unhooking from self-limiting adaptive patterns, while cultivating self-acceptance and reconnecting with essential wise parts of yourself. I work with men and women using a depth-oriented, body-mind approach to explore the complexity of identity and relationships. My aim is to help you understand from an embodied perspective the deeper dynamics of your struggle, strengthen the parts inside of you that can move beyond it and engage in life with a greater sense of meaning, strength, and self-compassion.

I will strive to create an empathetic and safe space to allow you to explore the challenges you are facing, support you in identifying goals, and help you to learn healthy coping strategies, such as mindfulness practices.
Are you feeling overwhelmed or anxious? Maybe depression has started to creep in and has made facing daily life feel daunting. Sometimes these feelings make it hard to sleep, or to get out of bed in the morning. Maybe what once felt like an easy task now feels impossible to even think about. Seeking therapy is a great step toward getting the care and support you need to find healing and to build healthy coping skills for managing the ups and downs of life. I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker currently working under the supervision of Aviva Wolfson, LMFT, LPCC at Mindful Pasadena.

I also utilize CBT, DBT, TFCBT and mindfulness practices.
You may feel broken, different, and struggle to make all the "pieces" fit together. Perhaps that is further complicated because you are a survivor of trauma, or struggling with immense grief, and find it difficult to maintain healthy relationships or feel balanced. We cannot go back in time, but we have this sacred moment, and I want to help you grasp it and make it genuine. I want to help you find choice, autonomy and radical compassion in who you are. If you are partnered, I want to help you develop skills to nourish growth in that partnership.

As needed, I am solution-oriented, incorporating tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness techniques into our work.
Successful psychotherapy is part science, part art. My goal is to help you to thrive and flourish. With an emphasis on your strengths, we work together to identify blockages and move you toward optimal health. We explore the patterns and behaviors which prevent you from reaching your goals. An ideal psychotherapy candidate loves to learn. You understand that the results of psychotherapy are a function of the constructive work that you put into your own process of self-exploration. Benefits from our work may include: healthier relationships, improved self-image, increased productivity and a better understanding of yourself.

Using mindfulness , neuroscience and compassion, I invite you to become present, know yourself, and take action despite difficult circumstances, feelings or even your own mind.
Distracted. Lonely. Confused. Sound familiar? Are you your own worst enemy? Has indecision or a "dumb" choice messed up your career, school or personal growth? Do you agonize over decisions? Or are plagued by critical thoughts? You may ask, "Why is this so difficult?" But, you want help. But, you want more than being asked, "How does that make you feel?" You want someone who gets you, gives honest feedback, and offers tools to take ownership of your life. So, let's have a conversation to start moving your life forward.

I work from a relational framework, often utilizing mindfulness based approaches, Brainspotting and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) in my practice.
I have seen how the powerful process of psychotherapy helps people cope with life's challenges and find inner strength. Therapy reduces suffering and promotes resilience. Additionally it helps improve communication and understanding in relationships. Effective psychotherapy elicits change and guides people toward living more authentically. I realize that people often seek help at their most vulnerable times. I am aware of of this as I guide my clients toward a better understanding of themselves and their inner world, thereby allowing for emotional growth, peace and the attainment of personal goals.

I work from a Psychodynamic approach synthesized with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness , and EMDR while incorporating humor, play, and somatic modalities to help individuals address the various challenges that life and relationships often bring.
Personal change and growth come from an encouraging, supportive, safe, compassionate, and empathetic environment where an individual can discover oneself and grow. Are you finding those coping mechanisms which once worked for you no longer are? Do you struggle to find a connection to yourself or others? Are you finding yourself still struggling with things that happened long ago and you don't understand why? Having the courage to work on one’s relationship to self and others can be powerful, deeply healing, and perhaps one of the most loving actions one can do.
