About

I use a variety of practices and therapies, including: EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Informed Therapy. My process is always to ask you, the client, what it is you want, what would that look like, and what is in your way. Then we collaborate to get you there!
My private practice is located in both Long Beach and West Hollywood. I work with Individuals, couples, and teens.
My experience includes trauma recovery, mood disorders and building healthy relationships. I also have 6 years' experience working in the LGBTQ community. My approach is always affirming, non-judgmental, and strengths focused.
