I provide tele therapy for individuals, and couples for CA residents. I do not have a physical office in CA. I also offer treatment for trauma. In today's world we are all finding that after working full time there isn't enough time to eat right, exercise, take care of errands, help the children with homework, and spend quality time with your significant relationships. What we end up with is exhaustion, feeling "burned out", anxious, and maybe even depressed. You are not alone. Don't suffer any longer. It's time to address your issues and get your life back.

Are you tired of working with therapists who just don't seem to get it? Have you tried Eating Disorder and/or OCD therapy that seems to have been made for anyone but you- only left to feel like maybe you are the problem? As a recovered survivor and now therapist, I know this couldn't be further from the truth. I believe in everyone's innate ability to find healing through through the safety of relationship. Living with an Eating Disorder or OCD is exhausting, dark and all consuming. Together, we can find ways to improve your quality of life so that you may discover a life that is meaningful to you.

Courage, dear heart, as life will present you with surprises and in time, you will manage each one with bravery. Our families can push our boundaries; our relationships can challenge us; and our careers can stretch us so thin. Negative self-thoughts can keep us in our heads and repeating old patterns can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Past traumas can intrude our present; social injustices can break our community down; and gender and cultural inequalities can be an exhausting battle. Our self-care can plummet and suddenly we are not our first priority. However, you are leaning in today and making an investment in YOU!

Finding a therapist can be overwhelming- especially when you need one. I get it. I've been there. But you're on the right track. To get you started, I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation, so feel free to reach out. Even if we aren't the right fit, I'll refer you to someone who might be. I pride myself on offering compassionate, open-minded therapy tailored to your needs. I'm not your mother's therapist: shame, guilt and stigma have no room in my practice. My focus is your growth and well-being.

When someone significant in your life is acting out, it’s maddening. Is it them?..is it you? Regardless, something has to shift. If you're in that space with your child, partner, or someone else; you know it can be a source of real suffering. There may be anger, depression, anxiety..it is stressful at the very least. Don't do this alone. Let's talk.

I am passionate about supporting women and teens facing the challenges of life in a way that helps them find sustained change. It is hard to live in this world and not question if our bodies, stories, and voices are “good enough.” We wonder if it is possible for us to be okay with who we are, and make different choices than we’ve made in the past. We often make decisions that are rooted in insecurity, leaving us trapped in anxiety. I value helping women learn to understand and respect their whole story on their own terms. Together we can define your own goals for change.

We all go through ups and downs; times when we’re mad, sad, angry, nervous or afraid. Whether you’re going through a big life change or things just don’t seem like they’re going your way, it’s normal to experience these feelings. But when the feelings don’t go away, when they linger for weeks, months or even years, you might need help getting your life back on track. Help is available, you don't have to suffer in silence. Recovery from these feelings is possible and I am available to help you when you are ready. Take the first step towards healing.

I help clients mend their broken hearts and calm their overactive minds by joining them in their journey towards deeper self-awareness through kindness and compassion. I whole-heartedly believe in the beauty of each person's unique perspective, and at the same time, gently encourage clients to be mindful of the universal human experiences of love and loss. Thus, providing comfort while helping clients explore issues that are difficult or painful. My creative and empathetic approach can assist clients in breaking a repetitive mindset by allowing them to gain new perspective through fresh insights, support and empowerment.

Every child is unique. To help children overcome social, emotional, behavioral, developmental, and/or academic challenges, we can't be preoccupied with simply signing labels. Rather, we need to identify a child's individual strengths as well as their weaknesses in order to design effective strategies that suit their needs. We work closely with parents, schools, and other professionals to establish a comprehensive picture of the whole child. It's from this highly individualized approach along with the collaboration with those that know the child/ teen well, that we are able to create the most significant and dramatic change!

I learned a great deal about varied adolescent experiences.
First, I strive to create a safe environment where the client feels heard, understood and supported. The compasionate use of 'unconditional positive regard' guides my work. This is a well proven healing factor in the therapeutic relationship. I believe my clients grow strongest by finding their own path through their unique inner landscape.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Balboa Park, San Diego and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
