I approach therapy from an attachment-based and wholistic perspective, exploring each aspect of what makes you, you: your relationships, emotions, environment, and spirituality.
Life experiences can impact us in surprising, often difficult, and even traumatic ways leaving us feeling out of touch with ourselves and those around us. We all have a desire to feel understood, and that journey often begins within ourselves. My goal in therapy is to create a space where you feel heard and safe while we explore deeper into who you are and begin to wrestle with the question “where do I go from here?”.

I utilize an attachment-based approach and skill-building techniques to help people better understand themselves, their patterns, and their romantic partners.
You’ve been hurt before. You may feel lonely, scared, hurt, angry, or disappointed that things haven't gone the way you'd hoped. Or maybe you’re experiencing transitions and you feel a bit lost and disconnected. With the difficulties of balancing daily life, navigating intimate relationships and personal well-being can feel really daunting.

As a therapist, I want to help clients love well and work well. Often, people experience difficulties in one or both of these areas due to adverse life experiences or trauma that has impacted the way they experience their thoughts, their bodies, and their emotions in relationship with others and the world. As a therapist specializing in addictive behaviors, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties, I utilize an attachment-based approach to treatment that incorporates mindfulness, psychodynamic work, EMDR, and specialized attachment repair protocols.

I work with teens and adults by predominantly using an attachment-based approach, whilst drawing from mindfulness-based CBT.
My life is spinning out of control. I don’t know what to do with myself. How will I ever cope? Will this ever end? If you have ever experienced these thoughts or something similar, you are not alone. Whether finding a new job or settling down with a partner, sometimes life feels like a never-ending struggle. How you maneuver through life’s difficult circumstances can be emotionally and physically challenging. For example, moving to another country, city, or town (as I did when I migrated from London England to California) or the dramatic changes one experiences at the loss of a loved one.

I believe the therapy process involves forming a relationship with someone who you can share with and trust. A third party who wont judge you, or share/gossip your most intimate secrets or life struggles with others. It's nice having friends and or family to share with, but that isn't always an option, nor is it always safe. I provide my clients with an environment free from judgement where you can let your guard down, vent, share and just be you. Therapy doesn't mean there's something wrong with you, it means you're ready to grow and better understand yourself, others and hopefully life. Isn't that what we're all striving for?

I work primarily from an Object-Relations and attachment-based orientation because I believe the way we attach to others greatly affects our emotional health, and ultimately dictates how we view and relate to ourselves.
My primary goal is to create a safe, open, judgment free environment. It is my belief that people at every age are the experts of their experiences and have the answers they seek already within themselves. I work with you to uncover your unique truth, while helping you gain tools to more wholly experience your daily life.

My areas of specialty include providing culturally-aware, psychodynamic-oriented psychotherapy to individuals struggling with depression and/or anxiety, attachment-based and relationship concerns or struggles, and individuals who would like to build a deeper understanding of their past and their internal world.
I believe we all yearn to be understood and my work with you is built on this as a cornerstone. I foster an environment that is rooted in non-judgmental listening and empathic understanding of your past, present and future. I offer psychodynamic, relational treatment, informed by evidence-based psychological theories and models. Therapy will be individually-tailored to your specific needs and struggles. In addition to my private practice, I am currently working at RAMS Outpatient Services, as a staff psychologist and clinical supervisor to psychological interns, trainees, and unlicensed clinicians.
