I specialize in anxiety, stress, and trauma-related disorders, and offer several empirically-supported therapies for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) including Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
I believe that people want realistic, practical solutions from a therapist. I want for my clients to be empowered from the meetings, and to walk away with new insights and skills to address the real issues and problems in their lives. I practice a type of therapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and believe that people grow in an environment that is active, productive, and motivation-based. You will learn how even small changes in our beliefs or habits lead to the most profound changes. Everyone is capable of learning new ways to grow and cope with difficult life experiences!

Are you experiencing a very challenging time in your life? Does it feel like you can't see your way back to you? Is it hard to recognize who you are from the way you feel? I can be there for you when it seems like the darkest, most difficult time in life. Many of my clients have told me that I am mothering and nurturing as a therapist. I approach therapy from a caring and compassionate perspective, more so after I became a mother of three children. Together we can use DBT techniques to help you reconnect with the things that are important to you and help you get back to being the person you want to be with the life you want to live.

How do you know whether you really love yourself? Oftentimes, even when we are successful in certain areas of our lives, we can be our own worst critic. Our fear of failure or struggles with identity can make it difficult for us to accept and cherish ourselves.Can you imagine diving deep to uncover who you really are, what really drives you, and what makes you uniquely you? Is it your love of nature? Your appreciation for geek culture?

Are you wanting clarity and understanding about why you or a loved one may feel and behave a certain way? Are you hoping to find validation by establishing (or ruling out) certain psychological diagnoses? Are you seeking a written psychological report for practical reasons such as civil litigation, employment/disability eligibility, or emotional support/service animal applications? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I may be the right psychologist for you. My approach is warm, transparent, relatable, and effective. I work collaboratively with each client to help them identify and reach their goals.

Hello, and welcome! In my practice, I work primarily with adult individuals. My special concern is to encourage my clients to not only participate actively in their therapy, but to actually become the principal source of insight into what should be worked on and how and when their goals have been met. This client-orientation - a core element of Cognitive Therapy - is the key to why this approach has been proven so effective not only in treating current conditions, but in preventing relapse. The client is not a passive recipient of therapy, but an active participant and driver of it with the guidance and supervision of the therapist.

You were hurt, violated in a way that most people won’t or can’t understand. You aren’t believed. You aren’t supported. You can’t even believe it yourself. Moving your life forward on a daily basis has become painful and difficult. Your work, relationships, sexual identity, sexual self, your goals and passion for life have all been affected. Most importantly, your relationship with yourself. You withdraw from your partner and others, or even find yourself searching for porn or repeating situations like your rape or abuse without understanding why. The deep sense of shame you feel is the worst part of all.

What type of San Diego mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
