My areas of specialty are specific to grief, anxiety , depression, and trauma.
Often times there are aspects of ourselves that we ignore, or push away to avoid experiencing pain or emotions that can feel unbearable. Pushing away parts of ourselves has an impact on our ability to connect with who we are as a whole person. My approach in therapy involves looking at all of these parts within our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual zones and examine the way they interact with one another. I work in partnership with my clients to help them discover; their path, what's important to them, and find their truest self.

The heart of my work with individual adults is to help you explore your inner emotional experience, identify negative, self-defeating beliefs and learn skills that will help you to respond, rather than react, to life situations. Our work together provides the space and guidance to develop greater self-awareness and compassion for yourself, while working through difficult issues of past and present. This approach can be helpful for anxiety and depression as well as experiencing deeper meaning in life.

I'm a clinical psychologist practicing with those who suffer from depression, anxiety , obsessions, anger, aloofness, issues of identity and intimacy, difficult life circumstances and many other problems. While I value knowledge about psychopathology, I find a purely diagnosis-based approach to be insufficient. Instead, we can be curious together about those factors which underlie and perpetuate your particular suffering. This process of exploration and discovery can only happen in a safe and confidential relationship. It is always a great privilege when someone chooses to reveal themselves to me on deeply personal levels.

In a time where distractions and uncertainties are omnipresent. Where isolation is fostered by "screen connections", anxiety that keeps us from achieving our true potential, or depression that makes it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. We are more alone than ever before and in need of true, meaningful connections. Reaching out for support is the first step in rebuilding and reclaiming our lives. In my practice, I strive to cultivate a safe space where you can begin your healing journey through a trauma-informed lens. You will learn how to fully regain control of your life and create the life you have always wanted.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a San Luis Obispo anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in San Luis Obispo.
