I work with clients in a collaborative relationship to create lasting positive change. Together we can alleviate your emotional suffering, identify your strengths, change old patterns, increase self-compassion, formulate goals, strengthen coping skills, enhance relationships, navigate transitions, and make life meaningful and fulfilling. Wherever you are in your process will be our starting point. I welcome clients from all backgrounds and communities. I specialize in anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, family of origin issues, relationships, academic/work challenges, identity, culture, grief and loss, and life transitions.

Everyone struggles with feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or hopeless sometimes. Therapy during those times can be deeply healing and transformative. I use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and positive psychology. Attachment (how we relate to others), and trauma-informed care (how our body and mind respond to stress) also inform my approach.

I have 18+ years experience at the USC Psychology Services Center, Veterans Affairs, and private practice. I also conduct research on stress, trauma and resilience at San Diego State University (SDSU). Please email me (including insurance info if applicable) to set up an initial phone call. I look forward to hearing from you!
