About

Deciding to start therapy and taking the steps to make your first appointment can be intimidating and overwhelming. Taking on this challenge is a major accomplishment and shows your power and determination to begin your journey of self-reflection and discovery. My goal is to help create a space for individuals, couples, and families to explore and process their emotions in an accepting and judgment-free environment. I believe in the innate ability of individuals to overcome their challenges and live more fulfilling lives. I have a passion for individual work and love working with couples navigating relationship and intimacy issues.
As a Psychodynamically trained therapist, I value the relationship between the past and the present and tracing our experiences back to the root of the problem while always staying grounded in the present tense. I am an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor and am supervised by Becky White LMFT 96730.
I have experience with children, adolescents, adults, and elders. I incorporate elements of CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness into therapy and work collaboratively with my clients to develop unique and individualized treatment plans and therapeutic goals. I work at Root to Rise Therapy in LA. If you are interested in working with me please contact the number listed.
