I provide individual, couples, and family therapy at my private practice on the Huntington Beach Hospital campus. Much of my work is with clients struggling with anxiety, dysphoria, or depression, or in their relationships with their romantic partners/spouses or their families-of-origin. I find strengths they've forgotten they have that can be used to defeat their problems. I use Narrative and Cognitive-Behavioral therapies and when working with couples I use Emotion Focused Therapy. Research has shown that 70-75% of couples who undergo EFT become closer and more intimate and 90% of them show significant improvements.

When life feels harder than it should, there's always a reason. Difficult events, whether past or present, can make daily life difficult. If you feel like you're doing more surviving than thriving, I'm here to help. I work from a trauma model, which looks at the impact of events on the way we think, feel, and act in the present. Abuse, lack of nurture, or catastrophic events can significantly impact normal functioning. Life gets better, and I work hard everyday to move people toward hope and healing.

My passion is to help those who feel weary and lost. It is difficult to be present and live a fulfilling life when the chains of past events hold us back. As hard as we run and distract ourselves, we also run away from our sense of self. Avoiding pain can grow into unhealthy behaviors and addiction. My intention is to help build a foundation for a meaningful life. Core pieces of the foundation include insight, communication, emotions, and connection. These pieces are vital to maintaining healthy relationships and attaining the love we want. Other important areas to consider are cultural identity, spirituality, and our past.

Hi. Do you feel as if you are stuck in your life, that you are not where you want to be, but that if you only had the tools to move forward, you could truly accomplish all that you have ever dreamed of and possibly even more? You are not alone in this feeling. Many people feel weighted down with the multiple challenges of trying to juggle all of the responsibilities of life, and as such often find themselves dealing with symptoms such as depression and anxiety. I would like to help you to discover & uncover what is keeping you stuck and help you to achieve your full potential by joining forces with you in a collaborative process in your life journey. I will be your teacher, mentor, supporter, and biggest fan as you learn to take control of your own destiny and soar to places that you never thought possible.

You’re unhappy, but you don’t know why. You feel sad, scared, anxious, and angry. You're struggling to have fulfilling relationships, including with yourself. You find yourself wanting to be happy, but somehow keep self-sabotaging. Or, maybe you have A LOT going on. You’re going through a divorce, a child custody battle, you have a high stress job, you’re in a bad relationship, and each day is feeling longer and harder to get through. I work with clients struggling with past, recent, or on-going high stress/traumatic experiences who want to live freely in the present, develop meaningful connections, and find peace in their lives.
