I am a licensed psychologist who provides individual, couples, and group therapy. My primary theoretical approach is insight oriented psychotherapy for individuals working through relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and adjustment to transition through life's challenges. I believe healthy people seek therapy for a variety reasons throughout life, and psychotherapy can help you find a more genuine and integrated way of living and relating to others. I work collaboratively to recognize patterns and become aware of unconscious habits and choices that impact one's life and functioning.

Without vulnerability, there is no growth. Sometimes our "own stuff" influenced by family generations and personal experiences get in the way of our healing. It is intuitive for us to defend against such vulnerabilities for protection and at the same time such defenses do an outstanding job of stunting our growth. Where's the balance? This is the reason I believe therapy is about creating a safe environment where one can feel comfortable to show their true selves, while also challenging the parts that seem to perpetuate this cycle of stuck-ness.

I support people on their path to empowerment, emotional balance, and connection. With warmth and compassion, I provide an outside perspective free of judgment, and collaborate with you to work toward your goals in therapy. Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed with a problem or have too much emotional investment in it to be able to see clearly. Perhaps you feel stuck or conflicted at a point in life and are unsure how to move forward. Or maybe you simply want a place to feel safe expressing yourself. Together we can sort through the obstacles you feel are hindering your growth and keeping you from living the life you want.

My “ideal client” if there is such a client is someone who has a desire to deepen their own self awareness. They have some insight into themself and is willing to explore the nature of the problem/s they are presenting with. This ideal client feels safe enough to be vulnerable to explore their own “shadows” (things about themselves that they deny or repress). They are also willing to challenge their own thoughts and belief systems. Feels safe enough to openly discuss any concerns they have about the course of treatment and our work together.

It’s getting harder to make it through each day. Getting out of bed feels impossible. You used to have hopes and dreams, but they’re so remote now. At some point, this hopelessness and crushing loneliness enveloped you. Now all you can feel is an overwhelming sadness. You try to numb yourself, block out the feelings by binging on television, ice cream, and wine – it hasn’t worked. You can’t escape this heavy reality. You can’t run from your mind. Your very heart and soul are bone-weary and exhausted. Happiness seems impossible. You want to live differently, but you just don’t know how to get there...

Likewise, as individuals, we can also become fractured within and become off-course with ourselves. My passion is to work along side you to create meaningful and positive experiences leading to lasting and effective change.

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who specializes in eating disorders, trauma, depression and anxiety. Emotional pain is very real and there are times recovery seems unattainable. Don’t lose hope. Healing is achievable. Further, finding the right therapist is extremely important. Studies have shown the therapeutic alliance between therapist and client proves to be a stronger determinant of clients’ success than the modality of therapy practiced. I am an experienced therapist who provides the space for vulnerability and transparency without fear of judgment or rejection.

You imagined the path to parenthood to look a lot different. Pregnancy, trying to conceive, coping with losses and becoming a parent for the first (or umpteenth time) can be quite different than expected. It's important to get help if you're feeling overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious as you anticipate becoming a parent, are currently pregnant, or just had a baby.

What type of San Diego 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 San Diego?
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.
