About

Therapy can help you find balance, connection, and fulfillment. In order to do so, I believe it's important that we acknowledge the shadow elements of life-the challenges that cause us pain, confusion, and block us from finding a sense of harmony and well-being. I collaborate with you in navigating the shadows and the more buried aspects of your life in order to develop a deeper capacity for balance, personal growth, and healing. To find out more about who I am, how I work, and if I might be the right therapist for you, consider visiting sanluisobispotherapy.org
My specialties: Anxiety & depression, trauma, women's issues, narcissism & codependency, couples counseling & relationship issues, and domestic violence. I specialize in helping individuals who believe they may be in a romantic, friend, work or family relationship with someone on the narcissistic personality disorder spectrum. santacruztherapy.org
I practice therapy with a psychodynamic perspective, exploring conscious and unconscious patterns, behaviors, and beliefs that impact one's identity and relationships. I integrate a trauma-informed perspective, attachment theory, and dreamwork. For couples work, I use emotionally focused therapy.
