I offer authenticity, compassion, and commitment to my clients to support them in challenging and transforming their limiting beliefs while accessing their strengths, leading to a greater sense of wholeness and wellbeing. As a trauma-informed therapist, I understand how adult or childhood trauma can shatter a person’s sense of security and trust, leading to ongoing struggles with unsettling emotions, memories, anxiety, or numbness that won’t go away. I also specialize in working with people who are coping with life transitions and difficult life changes, including adapting to the stresses and complexities of family life.

"Let your yes be yes, and your no be no!" Asserting your own needs and wants while maintaining love and connection within relationships can seem impossible. The chaos of pleasing others feels overwhelming and our own desires can get lost in transit. That feeling of being on an emotional treadmill- working hard without the results you desire. Help to unravel some of this messiness seems difficult without grace and guidance. The salve of a listener who can also offer insight can be a process toward healing. Whatever the narrative is in your current situation let's figure it out together. Internal self love and joy is possible.

With specialties in addiction and dual diagnosis; including depression, anxiety and trauma history, I take an integrated, holistic approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is one in which optimum healing is, as a result of the reciprocal bond, between the therapist and the client. One can only be open to the experience of change and improvement in their life if they feel safe. This is the therapy space that I provide in order to help shape authentic, loving and accurate self-awareness. I provide nurturance, guidance, affirmation and compassionate reflection in order to help clients feel grounded in their own decision-making.

Mental health challenges can feel isolating and difficult to overcome without help. It is my experience that a meaningful relationship with the right therapist can be healing and create long-lasting change. I enjoy working with people of all ages, particularly young women dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, trauma, or loss. I utilize a non-judgmental, empathetic approach to build a therapeutic relationship that is both encouraging and uplifting. I consider it an honor to sit with people during pivotal, and sometimes painful stages of their lives.

My early training and work with young children and their parents prepared me for my current work treating adults and couples; many of the struggles these families had centered around bonding and attachment. Today, most of my adult patients face relationship issues rooted in early life experiences. During psychotherapy treatments, I help my patients understand the value of working through early emotional losses so they can mature and enjoy healthy adult relationships.

I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in San Luis Obispo using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
