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.

I have experience helping clients who are: feeling anxious, depressed , stuck and in need of change; struggling in relationships or with family; coping with life transitions; survivors of trauma; experiencing reproductive health challenges; and building identity and increasing self-esteem.
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.

I work with those struggling to live with the effects of trauma and challenging life experiences who are desiring to work through past and present family issues in the midst of anxiety, depression , and other issues such as healing from abuse, assault, and neglect.
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.

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!

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.

Let’s be honest. Being stuck in anxiety, fear, depression , and despair is very discouraging and frustrating. It feels awful, it limits you, makes you feel hopeless, and just creates suffering and conflict in your life. So, what can we do about it? We can ignore it and hope it goes away, read a bunch of self-help books, or maybe try that 5-step plan to happiness we read about late last night. Some of these things might work but sometimes we just need help from a caring therapist who really understands you and can help guide you to a healthier and happier you. I would be honored to help you live the life you've always imagined.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Balboa Park, San Diego. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
