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.

I work from a Relational approach to understand how your past is impacting your present. Working together, we can try new ways of relating in a safe and confidential space.

Therapy could be a scary place at first. The process of exploring ourselves could be full of surprises - yet the connections in the therapy room create safety, empowerment and strength.It is not about how the therapist helps you, it is about how you can help yourself along with the insight, reliance and empathy that is already in you.

You wake up and think to yourself, “I just can't keep feeling this way.” Maybe it’s the anxiety or the stress. Maybe it’s depression. Perhaps it is the overwhelming feelings of low self-esteem when you look in the mirror. Whatever it is on that particular day, you just know that you cannot continue to live like this and feel this way. You want to wake up in the morning and feel hopeful, excited, and confident to tackle the day ahead. You long to finally be able to enjoy your time spent with loved ones and be present — rather than feeling consumed by feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or poor body image.

Therapy is a way of prioritizing yourself and your needs, and it’s an active step in the lifelong journey of healing and wellness. Whether you're trying to heal from wounds of the past, wounds of the present, trying to break patterns, build your sense of identity, or just need a safe place to be, therapy can help.

I have had the honor of working with individuals across the lifespan with a variety of mental health concerns such as trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, LGBTQ-related issues, family dynamics, and more. I believe that human beings are inherently relational and that we are born to thrive from connection to others and wouldn’t be who we are if not for the people that have come in, and sometimes out, of our lives. Examining these relationships can be a huge part of therapy, whether it’s with our parents, our partners, or with ourselves.

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.
