I am passionate about helping you reach your goals. With a curious mind, humor and a warm and caring manner I strive to provide compassion, understanding and respect as we work together to help you build on your strengths and attain the growth and change you are committed to achieving. I'll show up as me and you show up as you. We figure it out together. I may nudge if I feel you are stuck in old patterns but I never tell you what to do.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I provide psychotherapy and counseling services to adults and adolescents. I am a graduate of Pacific Oaks College, an organization who's goal is to promote social justice and inclusion. My practice is inclusive. I have worked for many years in Community Based Mental Health as a therapist, supervisor and clinical trainer to support the development of licensed and unlicensed therapists. My passion is to help with you with a life transition, personal growth, loss, anxiety, depression, trauma and traumatic grief.
My approach to therapy is to empower, support, increase insight and help you discover for yourself what is best for you. I provide honest, caring, practical feedback to effectively address personal life challenges and help you change old behavior patterns. Each person is different and has different ways of working. I look forward to discovering with you what yours are. Let's get started today.
