About

I am glad you are here. I hope to help you discover new ways to work through your pain and begin to see life in a different light. I am committed to helping others by empowering them to take steps towards regaining some sense of purpose or greater understanding about what they are struggling with. Whether it be navigating through difficult relationships, trying to manage daily worries, dealing with challenging days of depression, or struggling with trauma, you are in the right place looking for some guidance.
I have worked with individuals, couples, and families throughout the greater San Diego area over the past six years. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space to discuss your issues where you can feel seen and heard. My aim will be to understand who you are and the world you are in to create more meaning as you begin to heal.
Sometimes we can lose our way, lose sight of ourselves, and put distance between those we love. I am passionate about helping people find their way back to themselves and work towards reconnecting with their family or community. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
