If you’re looking for a therapist who is basically David Rose meets early-00’s Britney (with a dash of Drag Race & a pinch of recycled WeHo go-go boy,) you’ve clicked on the right profile. But please don’t let my humor undercut the reverence & respect I have for the therapeutic process. Self-empowerment, radical acceptance & authentic human connection will be the cornerstone of our work. I utilize strength-based, affirmative & neuroscientific theory to guide us...but healing doesn't happen via theory. It lies in you -- your hopes, hardships, successes & infinite wisdom. Sometimes we'll laugh. Often, we'll cry. But either way...

Anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, lasting effects of past trauma, and other sources of upset can be stressful and challenging to handle. Choosing therapy can be an important step in support of relief, healing, and reaching goals. In therapy, problems and challenges can be re-framed as opportunities for improved self-care, reflection, positive action, learning and growth. I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, the Gottman Method for Couples, Mindfulness Techniques, current research on habit formation, as well as many other relevant and helpful tools to assist you in reaching your goals.

My clients come to me when they're experiencing emotional and/or mental distress and just want the pain to stop...now. They are sleep-deprived (or the opposite), stressed over college, depressed about work, angry or indifferent to everyone, anxious, frustrated by everything! Their stomachs hurt and heads ache. The problems may stem from unmet needs (love, belonging, self-esteem), various issues (anxiety, addiction, depression, trauma, chronic pain) or not meeting personal or life goals. While change can feel difficult and scary, you can learn powerful, safe ways through as you progress to becoming the person you truly want to be.

My style as a therapist is warm, engaged, conversational, and collaborative. I use a variety of clinically sound therapeutic techniques that are holistically oriented and effective. I believe it's necessary and important to understand the meaning we make of things and to pay close attention to the stories we tell ourselves. Shifting our perception opens up the solutions and possibilities that may have been there all along, but we were in too much pain to see. When emotional pain is relieved, I believe our capacity for healing grows and we have renewed vitality, a sense of peace, and greater clarity.
