My speciality is working with people of all ages that are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. They usually know who they are, but keep it quiet in order not to stand out, but to fit in with social situations. Highly sensitive people are like sponges. They absorb other people's energies and are not sure what to do with it. They may have a sixth sense that has been undervalued or they don't know how to use it both in their professional and personal lives. What they do know is how it has been effecting their life and how tiring it is.

Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can't seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you're not good enough, unsafe, powerless...? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn't change the feeling. One of my goals is in helping you re-process the experiences in your life that push these feelings, so you not only know that you're okay - you feel it.

My focus in working with clients is to explore what prevents them from having the quality of life that they desire. One of my core beliefs is that people do the best they can given the context of their lives and the support available to them. People are endlessly remaking or discovering themselves; therefore, my clients and I work together to deepen their awareness of themselves and how they function in their world (with family, relationships, at work, school, friends) by exploring their experiences. Over a period of time, these explorations lead to new perspectives, increased choices, and new behaviors.

It is my goal as a therapist to provide a safe and welcoming environment where we can collaborate together to make the changes and develop new patterns to help you feel better and live a compassionate life.

I offer client-centered therapy in Eagle Rock and in Old Town Pasadena. Guiding principles are: that one always remains the expert on one's own life, that people have the internal resources to overcome their "stuck-ness," and that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to encouraging positive change and more meaningful living. While I deal with a wide range of client issues, most of my clients are high-functioning or gifted intellectually and/or artistically. I use Rogerian, Experiential Focusing, Gestault, Attachment Theory, and Existential concepts and methods, working with clients to help them maximize their personal freedom and growth.

We are at a time where compassion towards self is more important than ever. Life is overwhelming and complicated. Maybe you "have it all" but feel like something is missing or you are having issues communicating your needs. Many struggle with the idea of having symptoms of depression and anxiety internalizing the symptoms with being "crazy". I am here to remove the labels and have individuals be more aware of the symptoms you experience (fear, poor sleep and appetite, nervousness, sadness, negative thoughts, etc.) and treat them with compassion, reframing and safe coping skills to better improve your life.

You have recognized that your sexual thoughts and behaviors are out of control, or you have discovered that your partner is compulsively using sex or porn. You are likely feeling shame for your actions or deeply hurt and betrayed by your partner's actions, which is completely understandable.
