I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for each client by practicing openness and non-judgmental acceptance of every person with whom I work. We are all so different, which is to be celebrated. I bring my own sense of authenticity and genuine care for each person. I hope to serve as a guide in the healing process; to work hard alongside you in order to discover the areas of discomfort and assist you in creating a plan to overcome these challenges. I identify most with therapeutic approaches that have a foundation in compassion and the mindfulness philosophies of openness and approaching one’s self without judgment.

If you are a person of color (POC), in the LGBTQ community, and/or are non-monogamous/poly, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve had the privilege of working with diverse populations for over 15 years. In working with a culturally competent therapist like me, you can focus on what brought you to therapy in the first place and not on explaining or “teaching” the nuances of your culture and sexuality. My expertise is in helping those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I’m trained in EMDR, an evidence-based therapy that treats trauma and other difficulties.

Life can present many challenges. Most of the time, we can successfully handle the trials and tribulations of daily living; but occasionally we get overwhelmed. To help cope and feel much better, we consult a professional who sorts and sheds light on the elements that caused these challenges. In the process, we talk about how we feel and why we feel the way we do. Most importantly, we learn to successfully handle the initiating emotional triggers in a way such that the resultant problems no longer arise. My Los Angeles therapy practice is dediated to being that caring professional.

“Committed to you winning I designed a modern holistic psychotherapy approach to get you to your goals faster. I felt unsatisfied with the results from psychotherapy alone so I embarked on a global search for more answers. Learning from brilliant minds and teachers I combined discoveries I made from the world of life coaching, neuroscience and wellness practices with powerful psychotherapeutic techniques. The results have been dramatically more efficient and effective mental health and relationship improvement for my clients. And the process of creating that in that mindful way is simply more satisfying.”

If you would like someone on your side to the new journey of rediscovering who you are and who you want to be, that is my goal. To provide support through this new path with the objective that life will unfold with more joy and happiness.

During my first psychology class in high school I learned that there are actually words to describe my experience-the sometimes conflicting experiences of living between two different worlds. I became passionate about finding a way to address the experience of people whose hurts and wounds are often invisible-fractured hearts and minds vs physical challenges. I was saddened by my observation that too many people feel stigmatized and alone with their inner turmoil and wanted to find a way to make the heart, mind and body whole. My dream is that therapy becomes accessible to everyone and viewed merely as another source of support.
