I strive to help people become their own authority, which may have been compromised by unhealthy relationships, substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. I focus on the individual's relationship with themselves, fostering an understanding and compassion towards personal strengths and vulnerabilities. I believe it is imperative to address underlying issues with out judgment or shame, so that we can heal parts of the self that are no longer serving us. My clinical training is in psychodynamic therapy, and I tend to gravitate towards an attachment based and humanistic approach.

I am a psychotherapist currently in private practice in Santa Monica. I have been working with patients since 2010 and am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute where I also earned an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. My therapeutic style integrates my academic education with training and experience in various modalities. I draw from a diverse clinical background to meet the particular needs and goals of each individual. While I am most influenced by Jungian and Buddhist psychology, intersubjective and attachment theory as well as somatic approaches highly inform my work.

Is your past getting in the way of your present? The past can come back to haunt us in so many ways. In times of change and transition, old hurts rise to the surface and challenge us with challenging thougths and feelings. These thoughts leave you feeling disconnected from others, numb to your inner sense of knowing, overwhelmed with self doubt, and unsure of what to do next. This is not the real you. You are wired for connection and trust, but need some guidance to evoke this authentic self.

I look forward to helping you. I work to create a safe, empathic environment where we can explore your concerns at a pace that feels comfortable to you. Life is challenging, but therapy provides a place of comfort to look at life's stressors as well as what scares, saddens, or angers us. I work to help clients build a deeper and more compassionate understanding of themselves in order to identify their strengths, develop new coping skills, build more meaningful relationships and live a more fulfilling life.

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.
