Congratulations on deciding to seek support. What a great step toward meeting your health and relationship goals! Psychotherapy can help you feel more calm, joyful and connected to others, while gaining greater understanding of your inner self and healing psychic wounds.  You deserve to be heard, encouraged to express yourself, connect, grow and self actualize. Therapy can be difficult work; however, you will quickly see that relief and clarity are within your reach. With my guidance, you will make your own discoveries and decisions and maintain control over your process, keeping it exciting, safe and appropriate for you.

Trained at USC, and licensed in 1997, I’ve worked in varying settings as well as raising children and living abroad. In my practice, I see teens, adults, couples and families who are coping with trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, parenting and relational issues, are victims of DV or crime or want to find more meaning in life.

Finding a supportive and nonjudgemental place to express yourself can bring life-altering results. I care about your well-being, and provide the support, guidance and tools you need in order to gain insight, grow, change, and heal. I utilize psychodynamic, solution focused, cognitive behavioral, body oriented and various other treatment modalities.
