I have been in private practice for 10+ years focusing on clients with relationship issues, personal growth, depression, anxiety, and LGBT issues. I view therapy as a collaboration where we discover the areas where you want to make changes in your life and work toward reaching your full potential. I believe it is important that you have a good fit with your therapist, and I begin the process by discussing your unique issues you are bringing to therapy to determine if I can be an effective therapist for you.

The nature of my work varies base on clients needs. The goal is often similar; Enhancing lives through simplification understanding and consistency.

My experience promotes self awareness, more adaptive coping skills, and greater insight into working through challenges. I apply cultural sensitivity into my work to accommodate differences in the opinions, values and attitudes of various cultures and to provide the most effective treatment for clients.

Is life not turning out the way you thought it would? As a kid, you couldn’t wait to grow up, but now you are feeling disappointed and unprepared as you enter this next stage of life. A surge of panic floods your body when people ask you what you want to do with your life. Exhaustion has become your norm as you juggle all your responsibilities- school, work, family, friendships, dating. You want to truly belong in your community, but your relationships feel superficial as you long for more meaningful connections. Some days, self-doubt swallows you whole and you wonder, "Am I good enough?”

Life experiences can impact us in surprising, often difficult, and even traumatic ways leaving us feeling out of touch with ourselves and those around us. We all have a desire to feel understood, and that journey often begins within ourselves. My goal in therapy is to create a space where you feel heard and safe while we explore deeper into who you are and begin to wrestle with the question “where do I go from here?”.

I care...Let me help. We will create a safe, non-judgmental space from which to begin the process of healing. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families who have challenges in substance abuse, anxiety, depression, borderline personality issues and relationship problems. I also enjoy working with the LGBT community, specifically with Transgender people and their families. My rich life experience (fancy language for I'm older) allows me to truly align with partners and families that have members who are transgender and to be an ally with transgender individuals as they transition.

The stress and pressure of life can cause great distress to our physical, psychological, social and spiritual health. If you find yourself frequently feeling irritable, frustrated, withdrawn, hopeless, and nothing you've tried seems to help, professional counseling can be an effective option to explore solutions and improve emotional/psychological well-being. It would be my honor to be a part of your journey toward healing and growth.

We all have a story to tell. What does your story mean? How is your story relevant to where you find yourself today? What are you telling yourself about your story (for many, this sounds like, "It was all my fault. I am a failure. There is no hope"). Answering questions on your own can be scary and confusing; the answers can cause painful emotions. My hope for you: perhaps by sharing your story with me, with a gentle and firm approach I have learned from over 20 yrs. of work in this field, your story will begin to change; you will find new meaning to your story; you will create the rest of your story.

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here and considering therapy. Do you experience overwhelming anxiety or tend overthink everything? Do you struggle with your self-worth or are overly critical of yourself? Do you have trouble dating or find yourself in unhealthy relationships? Have you experienced trauma or significant life events that continue to negatively impact your mental health/quality of life? If any of this resonates with you, I promise you are not alone. Therapy can be a great tool to help you work through the things that are holding you back and take charge of your own life.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
