Announcement icon I am accepting new clients, I can offer teletherapy (phone and/or video sessions) and some limited in person spots.
Hello! I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist currently providing tele-therapy and limited in person sessions out of my cozy office in Hermosa Beach. My multidimensional approach allows me to deliver a unique, private, and personalized experience for clients to explore and empower their inner voice. 
I work from a cognitive behavioral and mindfulness perspective, helping my clients gain insight into their unhelpful thinking patterns and heal deep wounds. I specialize in addressing anxiety and have ample experience working with teens, young adults, and college students.
Growth is a process. Through the process, I will teach you how to empower yourself in your everyday life by taking better care of yourself and developing your strengths. Together, we can create a safe haven for your personal growth. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to see if we would be a good fit for each other.
