I believe the main goal of therapy is to remove the obstacles and blockages that preclude us from being genuine. My approach is straightforward yet compassionate. As your therapist, I simply hold the mirror up and allow you to reveal the parts of yourself that have broken off over the years as a result of stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, and other unresolved issues. Together we mitigate the impact of maladaptive behaviors and search for answers that are more closely aligned with your goals. The answers to many of life’s problems are internal, but we have been conditioned otherwise.

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." It is my belief that care should not only be individualized but also involve the individual, healthy coping skills, and a social support system that can help him/her/them progress towards a happier future.

Often life presents us with challenges we try to overcome. Sometimes we are successful and sometimes we need a helping hand; we need someone to listen to us. This interpersonal contact cannot be found at a bookstore in a self-help book, but with a professional and confidential advocate. I work with individuals, couples and families as well as with children of any age. I have training in domestic violence, sexual assault, and grief group therapy. I offer brief or ongoing therapy.

Therapy should be client-focused & should occur in an atmosphere of warmth & safety. My style is caring, creative and non-judgmental. A trusting relationship between client and therapist is essential for successful outcomes in therapy. Through this relationship, clients can explore the emotional challenges that they are facing. With the help of an empathic therapist, one can begin to gain awareness of unconscious emotional patterns, feelings & beliefs. Through the processing of this unconscious material, old wounds can be healed and the client can gain insight that equips them to create a life that is more satisfying and meaningful.

We all struggle at times and need someone to talk to. I provide a warm, safe, and non-judgmental space where you can talk about your struggles. Deciding to participate in therapy can feel difficult and uncomfortable, yet can be positively transforming. My role as your therapist is to support you and offer guidance and insight. I help adult individuals overcome and navigate life changes like divorce, remarriage, and family conflict so they can better understand themselves, their behaviors and live life in accordance with their values, and find overall happiness.

Hello and welcome! You’ve taken a courageous step in looking for help. If you are frustrated in your relationships therapy may help you understand the story behind your challenges. Psychotherapy is a place where you can unpack the relational roots of why you are struggling. Whether it be depression, anxiety or deep regret there is hope. Intimate relationship can bring out our assets as well as our liabilities. From codependency to heightened impatience we will figure “it” out together.

My approach is exploratory and collaborative. My goal is to facilitate lasting growth and renewed strength. Life has this "amazing" way of forcing change and challenge upon us (whether it is our own doing or not) but no matter what the circumstance I will work alongside you to move though the challenges and emerge healed and whole. I believe that therapy is a time for individuals to experience a transformational process through the partnership of someone who has their very best interest at heart.

For the last 16 years I have loved assisting others. Every person has intrinsic value, you have intrinsic value - that is worth rediscovering and celebrating. I believe every person has the right to a fulfilling, purposeful, and satisfying life. Sometimes events in life may have caused self doubts due to traumatic events or loss that can steal happiness and connection, or a sense of feeling unworthy of love. I truly enjoy listening and talking with you individually, as a couple, or a family, I'm honored to join with you in your journey of growth and the new possibilities of a fulfilling and connected life.

You deserve to feel happy, healthy, and loved! Your relationships can be the best part of your life, helping you to feel joy, appreciation, and fulfillment...or you can find yourself just going through the motions. In our stressful and demanding world, it is all too easy to disconnect from those who are most important to us; poor communication leads to a lack of understanding, and we become demanding, intolerant, and unforgiving of ourselves and of those who matter most. Instead of sharing quality time together, we spend our energy tearing each other down. Gaining awareness, and learning from the past instead of dwelling on it, are some of the first steps toward moving forward. I find nothing more satisfying than helping people to overcome their obstacles so that they can love and feel loved, accept and feel accepted, and realize that they are truly worthy of all that life has to offer. Since 2009, I've helped my clients become better versions of themselves; let's work together and start turning your possibilities into realities!

I am passionate about helping children and adults who come from hard places to find hope and healing, including those with PTSD, anxiety, and attachment problems. My desire is for my clients to experience a genuine, compassionate, and well-equipped psychologist to guide them toward their goals. I strive to help my clients learn, grow, and heal so they can flourish. I tailor my approach to each individual's and family's strengths and needs, pulling from several evidence-based practices, teaching and coaching concrete skills, and focusing on reflection and relational patterns. I have clinical expertise in the treatment of trauma both in children and adults, including those with histories of abuse, neglect, and other forms of interpersonal trauma. I love working with parents who themselves have come from hard places or with histories of loss who are struggling to find their way in parenting, to move from surviving to thriving. I am passionate about helping family members connect and overcome what has divided them. I have specialized training in helping foster and adoptive families. Additionally, I treat young children who are struggling with behavioral problems at home and school.

I am committed to the optimal development and functioning of individuals through an increased understanding of themselves and others. I have a sincere appreciation for the strengths and uniqueness of the people I work with, as well as an appreciation for cultural diversity. The therapeutic relationship is an experience that promotes an increased propensity toward self-awareness and change in behavior, allowing the individual to discard maladaptive behaviors that no longer serve them. My goal is to provide an environment of empathy, genuineness and respect where profound issues can be examined and transformation can occur.

What type of Santa Ana 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Santa Ana?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
