"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu. Having the courage to work on yourself to reach your full potential does not have to happen alone. As a psychologist and cancer survivor, I've experienced physical and emotional challenges that led to positive and healthy lifestyle changes. I hope to use these experiences to help others on their journey with emotional issues, chronic medical conditions, grief, life transition issues, or those who want to improve nutrition and lifestyle. I hope to walk this journey with you in order to facilitate growth and healing.

I also have experience working with cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and impacted family members, as well as clients with mild to moderate eating disorders.
As a therapist, I help people in the San Luis Obispo community navigate life changes and find balance, emotional health and mental well-being. Whether you’re facing a recent shift, past trauma, grief or loss, my goal is to provide a supportive environment for exploration and emotional healing. Additionally, I strive to build healthy relationships with my clients and equip them with self-care resources that can provide support during therapy and beyond. Therapy can offer both immediate and long-lasting results. I am also available to offer therapy to anyone in the state of California through confidential tele-therapy.

My dissertation research at UCSD's Moore's Cancer Center explored the psychological and physical benefits of practicing yoga post treatment for cancer .
Everyone has the capacity to make positive changes whether they be large or small if they are motivated to do so. Therapy can be a helpful tool to help you acheive your goals and/or explore emotions that are difficult to deal with alone. I prefer to work collaboratively with my clients to develop a treatment plan that works. Therapy can be hard work and it's important that you are comfortable with how your treatment is progressing.

I have a passion for working with cancer patients and survivors of all ages, stages, and diagnoses.
We all go through things in our lives that are difficult. I believe it is through these struggles that we have the opportunity to grow. Oftentimes connecting with another person to help guide you can be the changing factor in transitioning from struggle to growth.

Welcome! My 20-year history working in hospital, hospice, and home-based medical teams has helped me develop effective counseling skills for adults struggling with generalized anxiety, depression, caregiver stress, aging, cancer and illness impact, work-life balance, and unexpected life transitions; including COVID-19's impact to overall wellbeing. I additionally work with new mothers that may be experiencing anxiety and depression. Life transitions can create stressors that reduce our ability to care for ourselves and others. If you find this to be true in your life, I would be honored to help.

I have vast experience and passion for clients coping with the emotional impacts of illness, specifically cancer , on the patient and loved ones.
Seeking support when you’re already struggling, lost, and overwhelmed is particularly daunting. Finding a therapist who responds to your inquiry quickly and with compassion shouldn’t be an additional stressor. I am dedicated to being a trusted presence of empathy, truth, and support through this process, from start to finish. My practice is focused on helping people deeply understand their unique challenges, embrace and utilize their strengths, and begin to heal, change, and grow. I welcome the opportunity to connect with you and begin to help shape the type of relationships, passions, priorities, and life you wish for.

Most recently I have survived breast cancer .
I specialize in treating survivors! So many of us have endured abuse, trauma or self induced addictions. Many of us are haunted by our past or stuck in our current situations. How do we balance our hectic lives emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually? How do we find peace, happiness and fulfillment, or at least the absence of anxiety and depression? If you are not happy with your life, sometimes a little help is all it takes. Let me assist you in doing more than just surviving, but in thriving and finding your best life!

Need a therapist to jump into the thick of the muck with you, create a safe place to be vulnerable or talk about all the things you never thought you would say out loud? You've found your therapeutic sweet spot! You have a story & deserve to talk to someone. I geek out over meeting you where you are and understanding your unique needs. Equity & access to therapy are essential: from the convenience of home, no commute, no stigma, & complete confidentiality. Whether brief,  life transition, a safe outlet, or a longer goal, you deserve to be heard, and you deserve self-care. Live true to yourself and be proud to show up for yourself!

Connecting to our potential for vibrant, and meaningful relationships is more important now than ever as we work to find creative ways to stay in touch while keeping a safe distance. From this place I make it my focus to understand the ways that our past and present circumstances keep us from accessing this potential. Pain, relational or otherwise, can build up over time, become truly overwhelming, and can create barriers to a fruitful life. I'm deeply curious about the unique paths each of us move on towards healing and am committed to co-creating a resilient setting in which we explore what that path looks like for you.

My early training and work with young children and their parents prepared me for my current work treating adults and couples; many of the struggles these families had centered around bonding and attachment. Today, most of my adult patients face relationship issues rooted in early life experiences. During psychotherapy treatments, I help my patients understand the value of working through early emotional losses so they can mature and enjoy healthy adult relationships.
