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.

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.

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.

You may be feeling confused or anxious about your life. Deep inside you desire more but feel stuck and keep cycling in the same patterns. I know how overwhelming and unsettling this can feel. Many of my clients realize they hold a lot in or distract themselves from their feelings because they just don't know what to do about them. If this sounds familiar, you are in the right place. Trust that voice that deep down is telling you that there is more for you in life and that you deserve to truly be happy. I teach clients how to finally release old stuck emotions and stop spinning in the same dysfunctional patterns.

I am well versed in a variety of treatment approaches and have a diverse clinical background in different areas including treatment of: Depression and Anxiety, Childhood Physical and Sexual Abuse / Incest, PTSD, Domestic Violence,Infidelity Issues, Eating Disorder, and Adoption.
"In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” I truly believe that people are not what happened to them. They are what they choose to become. Therapy is a safe and private space in which you are able to deepen your understanding of your capabilities and choices you can make in life. Through providing positive and feedbacks, I will assist you to acquire a healthy set of coping skills and gain more insight about your psychology. This insight will eventually “unstuck” you from repeating unhealthy behaviors by breaking old patterns and developing new ones.
