I have extensive experience working with mental health and addiction disorders and can help you navigate these in a way that feels caring, compassionate and non-judgmental.
As a therapist, my goal is to help you live your life to it's fullest potential, in whatever way that may look for you. For many of us, unwanted emotions, thoughts, or behaviors get in the way and create roadblocks or barriers. My goal is to help you identify what keeps you feeling stuck in your life and, together, create simple solutions so that you can live a life that feels authentic and fulfilling.

Before joining Pacific Beach Health, I spent 4 years working as a Substance Abuse Specialist at a county-funded, non-profit agency that served homeless individuals with persistent mental illnesses and co-occurring substance abuse.
At Pacific Beach Health, I offer individual counseling sessions to adults and adolescents. Since 2013, I have been a member of the recovery community and understand the challenges and stigma that accompany substance abuse. I provide counseling and case management services to men and women struggling with substance use disorders. I recognize that recovery is not a “one-size-fits-all” process. I specialize in using a 12 Step approach, motivational interviewing, and other modalities to help people move past their addictions, develop skills to prevent relapse, and find the motivation within themselves to achieve long term sobriety.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.
