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.

Many of us use ways we coped in the past and we find ourselves blocked in the present. Maybe old strategies which once worked for you no longer function well in the present. And you'd like to explore possible changes. Perhaps I can help. In my work, I seek, with you, to identify and connect past feelings and previous ways to adapt with your present. As you begin to know more about yourself and your feelings, increased understanding can lead to change.

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.

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.”

Some of the questions my clients often grapple with in therapy include: What has served me in the past that no longer serves me? Which choices help me open to experience rather than withdraw? How can I rely on my strengths to overcome obstacles? How do I grow from connections and disconnections in my relationships? I am primarily guided by the unique qualities and needs of each person or couple, and work collaboratively towards their desired outcomes. When appropriate, I provide suggestions for behavioral practices between sessions, in order to bridge what we do in therapy to your everyday life.
