My therapeutic approach integrates a strength-based philosophy with emotionally focused therapy and mindfulness training.
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.

You’re exhausted from taking care of so many things all at once (isn’t that how it tends to happen) but when you stop to think of what you just did, even that seems like a blur. You know you’re overwhelmed, but have a hard time delegating. If you don’t do it, it just won’t get done properly. And it goes on and on. The funny thing is, on the outside you have it all together. Which only makes it that much harder to ask for help.

You are a highly motivated, hard-working, and responsible person. You value your relationships and achieving your goals. However, your anxiety often keeps you from taking the necessary steps to do the things that are important to you. You have spent so long fighting and struggling to feel better that you feel completely out of control in your life and with your emotions. You are exhausted, overwhelmed, and are ready to stop struggling and start living the life you imagined for yourself. You have tried everything under the sun to manage your anxiety but it only brings temporary relief. You are ready for lasting change.

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 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 most commonly use cognitive-behavioral therapy but also draw upon acceptance and mindfulness -based approaches.
Have you experienced a traumatic event you cannot seem to get out of your mind? Do anxiety and worry get in the way of living your best life? Does constant stress suck the joy out of life? Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I may be the right therapist for you. I want you to know that recovery is possible, no matter how long you have been struggling. My practice specializes in treating PTSD, trauma-related guilt, anxiety disorders (e.g., social anxiety, generalized anxiety, panic disorder), insomnia, stress from infertility/pregnancy loss, and addiction/dual-diagnosis.

I specialize in CBT, Solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness .
Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

Meditation and mindfulness based therapies are often a big part of my practice.
Maybe you are missing the joy and peace in your life that you know you really need. You are struggling with trying to please everyone, and you end up exhausted and overwhelmed. You don't have the time and energy you desperately need for yourself. You replay awkward moments in your mind when you try to go to sleep at night. Then, you wake up feeling tired. If this sounds like your life, I want to help you shift from the patterns that keep you stuck, reconfigure how you are seeing the world and focus on what is most important to you!

I will develop a plan for you that may include Mindfulness , Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Schema Therapy, EMDR for trauma, Health Psychology etc.
In 2022, you face new challenges. Anxiety, worry or stress limit you from being fully present in life, work, & relationships. Past traumas or attachment hurts get re-triggered. Chronic stressors in your family, work, health, marriage or parenting remain unresolved. Yet challenging times present an opportunity for growth & transformation. You may find new courage to change old, conditioned patterns & self-defeating habits. You may finally be ready to confront difficult emotions, make different choices, live healthier, or take more risks. Our therapy together will be a journey to mould your future self.

With MINDFULNESS I will help you to: *Observe yourself, others and your environment with awareness and without judgment because acknowledging thoughts, feelings and actions, as well as your surroundings, will widen your worldview: ACCEPTANCE BEFORE POSITIVE CHANGE *Create balance between your emotional and rational brain because knowing how to stay emotionally regulated will help you with decision-making from a pro-active place instead of a reactive one: REASONABLE MIND BEFORE EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS *Focus on one task at the time and on the present because mono-tasking and being in the "here-and-now" will help you connect to your purpose: SPECIFIC GOALS BEFORE SUCCESS

I approach therapy in a supportive and interactive way, utilizing mindfulness and cognitive behavioral interventions, as well as some expressive arts.
I work with individuals and families across the lifespan who are impacted by life transitions, mood disorders, social challenges, negative self-concepts, autism, other developmental disabilities, and difficult times. I am generally able to connect with kids, including tweens and teens, and we address the different issues that arise with friends and family as they develop their identity further. My clients tend to be seeking a safe, encouraging environment where they can explore their feelings and thoughts, which I strive to provide.
