Welcome! Covid-19 has been particularly hard on our children and teens– and we’ve seen high levels of isolation, depression and anxiety among our youth this year. I’m here to help. Children and teens have so much to say– yet they’re still building skills to effectively express their needs, feelings and thoughts. So, child and adolescent therapy looks very different than traditional adult therapy. I love finding ways to help each child and teen express and grow– ways that work specifically for them. I combine various approaches, including person-centered, attachment-based , and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy oriented models.

I believe everyone has their own unique way of viewing the world based on their experiences. My approach to treatment is attachment based and client-centered. The emphasis is placed on exploring your values, experiences and what is important to you. While you may appear to the outside world as having it together, unresolved distress can cause you to feel like you are crumbling on the inside. Whether you are feeling overwhelmed, worried or experiencing self-doubt. I can help guide you through the process of knowing yourself and being able to understand, accept and express your emotions.

My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

R play, psychodynamic, and attachment-based schools of psychotherapy to cater sessions to each client’s unique and individual needs.
You deserve to feel seen, heard and supported! We are all in a collective period of transition, and change naturally brings up feelings of anxiety and fear that can seem overwhelming and unmanageable. But you do not have to face these feelings alone. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; I provide a safe space to feel, process, and integrate these changes into your life. I believe that the body should always be apart of talk therapy, and I use a variety of Mindfulness practices to help my clients become embodied before exploring the root of their problems.

I utilize psychodynamic, relational, and attachment-based as well as elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness practices.
For many of us, the challenges we face in our daily lives can be overwhelming, no matter what form they take. We find ourselves repeating the same unhealthy patterns, yet struggle to understand why. After a while we begin to lose trust in our judgement and grow distant from our intuition, finding it difficult to identify our own guiding voice. So we learn to cope through any means possible, which often emulate ways we have learned to protect ourselves. We find ways to run from the pain and our internal shame through substance use, unhealthy relationships, and other self-destructive behaviors.

I work with teens and adults by predominantly using an attachment-based approach, whilst drawing from mindfulness-based CBT.
My life is spinning out of control. I don’t know what to do with myself. How will I ever cope? Will this ever end? If you have ever experienced these thoughts or something similar, you are not alone. Whether finding a new job or settling down with a partner, sometimes life feels like a never-ending struggle. How you maneuver through life’s difficult circumstances can be emotionally and physically challenging. For example, moving to another country, city, or town (as I did when I migrated from London England to California) or the dramatic changes one experiences at the loss of a loved one.

I work from a psychodynamic, attachment-based , and relational lens and I believe developing a trusting relationship is essential to do this work together.
Life can be incredibly difficult at times and is further exacerbated by our present day sociopolitical context, historical trauma, colonization and our own self-perception. As a therapist, I have the privilege of supporting people to explore all the complexities of their individual experience and how this impacts all aspects of their lives and relationships. My clients are often working hard to better understand their own experience, actions, values and how to create more alignment within them in order to move towards their desired goals.

Everyone is born without shame. We arrive naturally curious & creative with a clear & healthy sense of self. Then disturbing things happen that change us. Memories & feelings get frozen in our brains and change us. This can happen from devastating events, like accidents, molestation, loss, and violence & also from hurtful patterns in families or school that erode one's sense of worth, like bullying, humiliation or rejection. Adverse life events & trauma can change our self-esteem, impact relationships & create unhealthy coping behaviors. EMDR is an evidence-based, proven treatment that can help make lasting change.

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, and trauma? Do you experience difficulties managing family and relationship issues?

The subconscious mind controls most of our reality and choices, so building awareness and active presence can improve the quality of daily living and assist in not only surviving but thriving through life. As an intuitive & holistic therapist, I will assist you in strengthening your inner psyche and developing new tools to manage negative feelings and thoughts.

I specialize in working with individual adults and couples who, despite success they may be experiencing in many aspects of their lives, are feeling depressed and/or anxious, and who may have reached a point where their life lacks a sense of purpose and meaning. Ideally, clients I work with are willing to explore their past for the purpose of identifying patterns in the way they have behaved and felt, and for the purpose of understanding how these patterns may have developed. Then, I will help you identify specific changes you may want to consider to help you move forward.

Are you feeling disconnected from your partner? Are you arguing over little things? Does intimacy feel boring, scary, or embarrassing? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Sometimes, we're not 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 not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

I am also an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and dedicated to providing a safe space and affirmative support. My primary goal is to establish therapeutic alliance that fosters hope, healing, personal growth, and insight to continue to get up and show up in the world.
