Let's Connect (626) 774-7833
I help individuals and couples understand and overcome barriers that get in the way of living a meaningful and fulfilling life; this can include professional, emotional, or interpersonal challenges. My approach draws on narrative and cognitive based principles, that value the understanding of how our experiences, self-awareness, and relationships impact how we cope with life. I believe the process of therapy is one that encourages collaboration and curiosity, and in doing so creates a hospitable environment to explore a variety of life experiences and achieve a healthy life balance.
Along with my individual practice, I am a sports psychologist and work with athletes, teams, and coaches in the LA area. I help athletes develop performance based mental skills and navigate interpersonal issues related to athlete identity development. My work often includes; performance anxiety, focus/concentration, imagery, mental/emotional resilience.
Using therapy as a resource is all about finding someone that feels like a good fit. If you are interested in connecting with me to see if we might work well together, please feel free to reach out and I would be happy to speak with you to answer any questions you may have about getting started in this process.
