Whether you are experiencing anxiety, stress, relationship issues, coping with trauma, screaming at the world gone mad, seeking answers to spiritual or existential questions, or pursuing personal growth, I will work hard to empower you. Together, we will explore, clarify, and address issues at the root of your concerns, clearing a path towards inner peace.
I have over 16 years of expertise in residential and outpatient settings at one of the foremost South Bay addiction treatment centers. Although I have specialized in treating substance use disorders, I also have significant experience working with patients experiencing co-occurring anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, and other mental health challenges.
Whatever you might be experiencing right now, my heart goes out to you. Life can really suck. At times, seemingly impossible to “figure out”. Through my own life experiences and clinical work, I have experienced and witnessed profound suffering. Through all of that, I’ve learned there is a way. Reach out. I’d love to hear from you and help you find that way.

I work with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, and ADHD, among other things. In our sessions we will explore what arises and will collaboratively work to create a plan to journey towards healing, wholeness, and authenticity. That may mean a reduction in symptoms, which happens in the course of this work, or a greater understanding of self and overall transformation.
