"My passion for mental health stems from my recovery story. I fell in love with the people and organizations that helped me. And, when I starting helping others on the path of personal growth, I knew what I was put on this planet to do. So, I got out of the job I hated to pursue a Master's Degree in Social Work at USC. My approach to psychotherapy focuses on learning about the journey my clients have experienced. Followed by a solution-focused orientation that encourages forward progress and goal achievement. I believe that with love, support, and honesty anything is possible."

"I see many people who tried regular talk therapy, but their symptoms didn't shift. I also see folks who are overwhelmed--by traumatic events, or simply when modern life, feelings or relationships are "too much". If you've been in talk therapy but are still feeling stuck, it may be because the stress is still in your body. This can show up as PTSD, anxiety, depression, low motivation, panic attacks, substance abuse, eating disorders, etc.My clients learn what their bodies are trying to tell them and what needs to happen to stop symptoms & support healthy well-being. I have a knack for working with unusual or "out of the box" folks."

Whether you suffer from depression, anxiety, a past trauma or emotion dysregulation, there are evidenced based practices (EBPs) that help with these conditions. In therapy, unhelpful thoughts and behaviors can be discussed, at your pace, in order to reduce emotional suffering.
