What motivates me to be a therapist is my desire to help clients maximize their potential for personal growth. I work with individuals, families and couples to help them in their journey of discovering their innate abilities of solving their own problems. In this way I will direct them in learning what obstacles they create for themselves and how to use their abilities to evoke change. My preference is in-person, but am willing to do Telehealth, as needed, after initial in-person assessment, in-person offers valuable energy exchange necessary for the human connection between therapist and client. I'm fully vaccinated.

Life is an extraordinary journey filled with constant changes and challenges. Therapy is a powerful tool that helps us navigate our way through some of the more chaotic and confusing times. The best answers are found by looking inward; examining personal strengths, values and beliefs, to gain insight and promote personal growth. I provide individual, couples and family therapy with a focus on building healthy relationships with self, family, friends and community. Most of our significant relationships fall somewhere on the continuum between dependency and interdependency.

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.

During my thirty-seven years as a therapist I’ve successfully treated many clients for anxiety, depression, dysfunctional relationships and a variety of other issues that have prevented them from living full and happy lives. Often, there problems were caused by traumatic events from childhood. Other times they resulted from more recent events such as a divorce, job loss, serious medical diagnosis, or the death of a loved one.

Accepting new clients in person and online. I am a therapist specialized in couples therapy and in trauma. Half of my clients are couples who are in crisis, are considering separation or have found out about a betrayal. I see also many couples who have communication problems and are very disconnected from each other. In addition to couples, I work with adults who are having anxiety or depression symptoms. Many of them have gone through experiences of trauma, are in a difficult life transition and are wanting to unpack the past, set boundaries with their family and be their preferred selves.

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.
