I have been practicing in Ventura for over 25 years. I specialize in helping people work through difficult areas in their lives, which are often relationships; all sorts of relationships. While marriage can be the most challenging relationship anyone will ever experience, it can also be the most rewarding. I help people learn to communicate more effectively and overcome any barriers or traumas that may be interfering with their relationships. I will help you identify how to find more satisfaction in your life and your relationships and how to experience peace and happiness within yourself.

I believe therapy can provide a safe space for creating a more fulfilled life. There are times where we may experience traumas, feel stuck and emotionally disconnected, and have difficulty coping. My approach to therapy includes a humanistic centered style, where we establish a collaborative and trusting relationship to allow for vulnerability and personal growth to occur. I am committed to providing compassionate and empathetic care to support you in your journey towards self-discovery, where we can explore and identify your strengths, build confidence, and self- esteem.

I love working with couples as well as individuals interested in hike or nature-based therapy. From our very first session you will take home practical tools for both communication and relaxation. In moments of stress, you will have less blaming ways to express what you need to keep things from escalating. For those times when you do lose your cool, you will know more about calming yourself down before saying something you regret. I'll help you learn to be kinder to yourself, to be aware of how you talk to yourself. For starters, don't believe everything you think!

Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.
