I'm an empathetic and dedicated Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, wholeheartedly committed to guiding individuals on their journey towards improved mental health and overall well-being. With a rich background in entertainment and music, I ventured into the realm of clinical psychology, obtaining an MA from Antioch University. My career began at APLA Health, where I provided psychotherapy to a diverse range of LGBTQIA+ clients. This unique blend of experiences has enriched my perspective on life, allowing me to appreciate the resilience individuals display in the face of adversity.
My approach to therapy is multidisciplinary. Drawing from evidence-based modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Narrative therapy, and psychodynamic principles, I believe in a tailored and collaborative journey. Your unique experiences matter deeply to me, and I respect the path you're on.
I have expertise in assisting individuals in managing depression, navigating life transitions, coping with stress, enhancing self-esteem, and fostering healthy relationships. As an ally of the LGBTQ+ community and other diverse identities, my commitment is to provide culturally sensitive therapy for all walks of life. I am only able to treat residents of CA.
