From the outside-it might look like you have everything together. However, you can't stop thinking about food and your body. Your life is starting to revolve around planning binges and purges, restricting, compulsive exercise and/or body image distress. Or, perhaps you are becoming consumed with intrusive, dark, scary, weird thoughts that trigger anxiety. Thoughts that won't seem to leave you alone and feel too embarrassing to tell others about. You might feel unsure of reaching out for help, but deep down you know something needs to change. Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, anxiety, trauma or OCD- I can help!

I provide tele therapy for individuals, and couples for CA residents. I do not have a physical office in CA. I also offer treatment for trauma. In today's world we are all finding that after working full time there isn't enough time to eat right, exercise, take care of errands, help the children with homework, and spend quality time with your significant relationships. What we end up with is exhaustion, feeling "burned out", anxious, and maybe even depressed. You are not alone. Don't suffer any longer. It's time to address your issues and get your life back.

I approach therapy with my clients from a perspective that honors your unique experiences and responses to the world around you. Fear, panic, chronic stress, a mind that just won't slow down, poor sleep or appetite, discomfort in your own skin, hopelessness, lack of motivation and energy - just not feeling like yourself - these are just a few of the most common symptoms bringing people to therapy. They are also some of the most effectively treated. I utilize multiple evidence-based therapeutic approaches to tailor treatment to your own specific needs.

When someone significant in your life is acting out, it’s maddening. Is it them?..is it you? Regardless, something has to shift. If you're in that space with your child, partner, or someone else; you know it can be a source of real suffering. There may be anger, depression, anxiety..it is stressful at the very least. Don't do this alone. Let's talk.

I primarily practice from a relational psychodynamic orientation, while integrating aspects from other modalities such as DBT, CBT, and ACT based on each client's unique presenting problems.
I believe that some of the ways people developed to cope with difficult experiences in early life no longer adaptively serve them; therefore, I help clients gain insight into those patterns and develop new ways of being in order to make positive changes. I also deeply value the impact that family-of-origin and culture have on identity development, interpersonal relationships, and how one views the world. My dissertation focused on examining the relationship between academic stress and physical health symptoms. I have a specialty in working with adolescents, college-aged students, and young professionals.

The cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and somatic approaches that I offer, will help you break free from this cycle.
You wake up exhausted, and defeated. High anxiety, racing thoughts and loneliness overshadow every hint of joy in your life. As your energy plummets, small tasks become huge. Just talking seems like a chore. Irritability and exhaustion are a constant battle. Loved ones complain that you are removed and shutdown. You want to let them in, but it’s hard to trust anyone. It’s become impossible to turn off that negative voice in your head that keeps saying you aren’t doing enough. No one understands. Everything triggers you. The past is tied up with the present, your thoughts are dark, and you’re afraid of losing everything.

In my practice, I affirm clients’ identities and intersecting struggles, while drawing on psychodynamic, relational and mindfulness practices, dialogue, and strategies for collective care.
I believe our lived experiences and hopes for the future provide us with insights to help understand our pain, joy, struggles, triumphs, and deepest questions. The late poet and essayist Audre Lorde reminds us that "our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge." Using an intersectional, anti-oppressive, and trauma-informed framework, I embark on a collaborative journey with clients who want to reflect on their experiences and unpack symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and trauma that may impact their relationships and daily lives.

These are challenging times and much that we’ve taken for granted - health, finances, career, life dreams - can suddenly feel elusive and precarious. I dedicate my work to helping you to identify and challenge the obstacles in your way, whether from current turmoil (e.g. trauma, grief, covid) relationship, or from ongoing existential themes about life purpose. Certified in Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapies (IPT) therapies, I draw from traditional psychodynamic theory (i.e. attachment and early family dynamics) and incorporate mindfulness, when appropriate, to guide you toward your desired change.

I primarily work from Rogerian, client-centered, and psychodynamic orientations.
Authentic communication and connection nourishes our essence. Being in tune with our deeper self helps us stay centered, feeling sure and confident of who we are. At times our head may spin from anxiety-provoking events or situations. We can learn to cope and self-regulate by getting in touch with our self in different ways. Nourishing our essence gives us a solid sense of self-worth, helping us feel safe and secure in the universe allowing us to take ownership of our journey through life, whether dealing with addiction, depression, anxiety, or relationships we can learn to live in the solution.

This approach, much like the psychodynamic philosophy, pays close attention to how the unconscious mind influences how we experience life.
I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents. I quickly get to know my clients so that we can co-create a plan that is right for them. Some people come with specific issues they would like to address. Others, are not sure why they are unhappy, feel nervous, are dissatisfied, and are not enjoying life. Together we investigate where this may come from, look for the root cause(s) and then create a plan for change. My business and entrepreneurial background helps me to understand the pressures that many people face daily, the challenges of balancing work & life, and the struggle to maintain relationships and a career.

I work from an integrative psychodynamic approach to help you discover ways you have, unknowingly, prevented yourself from getting what you want in life.
Everyone has an inner critic that is demanding, judgmental, and critical of the self. Some have harsher inner critics than others; however, my goal is for my clients to experience less criticism and more curiosity and self-compassion. Self-criticism is debilitating. It can lead to depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, cutting, substance abuse, infidelity and the list goes on. As I work with my clients to develop more self-awareness and self-understanding, they begin to develop more self-compassion and their symptoms begin to dissipate.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Golden Hill, San Diego, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
