About

We are taught to constantly go, but sometimes we need to stop, look inside, and find what's keeping us from moving forward. I offer a safe container to do this. You have the knowledge within to choose the right path. It's my job to walk with you, lighting the way. Containment and clarity: this is what I can offer to you as my client. I offer therapy in English/Spanish to individuals, couples, and families. I have advanced training in EMDR, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I also offer parenting support.
My approach is collaborative and personalized. I'm influenced by Buddhist Psychology, helping clients uncover unconscious thinking patterns to understand why our actions don't always mirror our intentions. As a holistic therapist and a Registered Yoga Teacher, I use a mind-body approach, seeing the body as an informant.
Depending on your needs, our work together can be more goal directed and practical, using short-term therapeutic approaches. Or, it can be expansive, open-ended, and inquiring, offering a more holistic approach. Please call me today with any questions. I look forward to talking with you!
