Announcement icon I continue to offer Telehealth sessions in lieu of in person services at this time. All California clients are warmly welcomed.


You deserve to feel safe, connected, and understood and have deserved this for a very long time. It hurts when you think about that that you sought connection and comfort from someone important in your life, but did not get what you needed. It can be hard to describe the impacts of these experiences or the toll it took on you to grow up with important needs unmet. If this description speaks to you then you may benefit from healing work around relational trauma and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I imagine you want to feel at peace and confident but that a fear of rejection or belief that the world might end if you make a mistake gets in the way. I can help-with a client-centered and thoughtful approach; because just as the context of trauma is individual, so is the process of healing.
Featuring the ability to do online sessions I make therapy convenient and possible. Clients who work with me appreciate my empathic, intuitive, and compassionate approach. Check out my website and call or email me today to schedule an appointment.
