I am passionate about empowering children of all ages to make more thoughtful, informed choices in their life. I have worked with clients navigating grief/loss, anxiety, depression, anger, family changes, cultural and ethnic identity, medical traumas, and other challenges. Through therapy, children are provided with a nonjudgmental, safe space to process their experiences and develop skills and the opportunity to strengthen their psychological fortitude, self identity, and resilience through therapeutic interventions. All of this helps them to more effectively communicate their needs to supportive adults around them.

Therapy is a powerful process of discovery and transformation. People begin therapy for many reasons. Maybe you currently feel stuck in negative beliefs, patterns, or behaviors. Or maybe you are looking for meaningful ways to change. Whatever your reason, we can work together to create long lasting change. Therapy can teach you how to be more compassionate towards yourself. You will discover and evaluate what is limiting your growth and well-being, and strive towards living a fulfilling and whole-hearted life.

Clients who work with me will find an inviting and collaborative environment where they can bring their “whole” self, the “messy” parts included, and engage in a process to better understand their stories and contexts, while receiving practical suggestions to support their experiences both during and outside of therapy sessions. I enjoy working with clients who wish to get unstuck from repetitive, troublesome, or self-defeating patterns of relating to themselves, others, or their world.

It’s exhausting, isn’t it? Some days are ok. Other days you end up spiraling and crying under your favorite blanket. It just seems like the good doesn’t last and there’s always some other problem on the horizon. You’re so tired of feeling stuck in this never-ending cycle. You wonder, “Why me?" "I’m the problem, it’s me.” — Guess what? You’re not the problem. The problem’s the problem. I'm here to help you remember who you are, and what you’re capable of, beyond the challenges you’re facing.

JOIN our waitlist for May 2023! Our therapists use a nervous system informed approach to therapy, specializing in helping adults, individuals & couples, nurture conscious & satisfying complex relationships with themselves, others, & spirituality. These adults want to create a consistent inner knowing of the reality that they're woven into the fabric of the universe, a knowing that translates to a more satisfying, connected, and complex life. We believe being disoriented from this inherent interconnectedness, which is often caused by nervous system dysregulation, is at the root of most mental health challenges.

Life can be chaotic and confusing sometimes. While we are all equipped to cope with stress in various ways, chronic stress can become overwhelming. If you're experiencing anxiety, depression, anger management issues, or chronic pain, seeing a therapist may help alleviate symptoms. Therapy can help regain access to your problem-solving abilities through stress reduction while teaching you new methods of coping - strengthening your repertoire of coping skills.

I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.

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.
