Let's Connect (805) 429-4152
I help people who seek improved interpersonal relationships, enhanced brain function, nervous system regulation, spiritual guidance, and diagnostic clarification. You may have experienced a loss, a trauma, a transition, or an unexpected life upheaval. My job is to walk with you in the darkness and shine a light, so we may find the way through together. Whether you are seeking an assessment for diagnostic questions, or a longer therapeutic relationship to allow deeper self-exploration, I am happy to join you in the work. I am highly motivated to work with individuals that identify as part of the LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse communities.
I am trained in somatic psychology, psychodynamic psychotherapy, applied behavior analysis, neuropsychological assessment, and QEEG neurofeedback. I am currently completing a 3 year training in Somatic Experiencing, a psychobiological (mind-body) approach to healing trauma. I offer a range of effective therapeutic services depending on what you need.
I am accepting clients needing an assessment to clarify diagnostic and treatment planning questions. I specialize in assessing and treating neurodiverse teens and adults (ADHD, Autism, Tourette’s, Highly Sensitive, etc.). Please reach out to me if you’re interested!
