Are you a people-pleaser? Do you find yourself being kind with loved ones, but critical and unforgiving with yourself? Do you use food, alcohol or drugs to try to make yourself feel better, yet find it isn’t working? Does your life sometimes feel unmanageable?

I can help you overcome these issues and feel empowered so that you can bring ease and joy back into your life and relationships. You have all the answers within, I just help you get there.

If you think you could use some support and are looking for a safe and encouraging place to build your tools, give me a call. I want to help you heal so that you can live a more vibrant and engaged life. A life that you feel excited about!

I can help you if you want to:

  • Heal old wounds that have been holding you back
  • Understand and change addictive behaviors
  • Get practical tools to help you gain control of your emotions
  • Feel more confident and in control of your life
  • Have a safe place where you can feel heard and understood

As a holistic psychotherapist, I take a whole-person approach. I believe that in order to be authentically happy, one must attend to the health of mind, body, and spirit. My approach is warm, open and collaborative; working with you to explore reactions, emotional patterns, and thought processes. I encourage honest exchange at your own pace while providing you with tangible techniques to take into your life. The goal is to create a safe, interactive and trusting relationship where troubling and sensitive issues can be explored and understood. To me there is no greater calling than supporting people as they work to find happiness and fulfillment

Through our work together you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your goals
  • Develop skills for improving your relationships
  • Learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
  • Manage anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
  • Improve communication and listening skills
  • Change old behavior patterns and develop healthy new ones
  • Improve your self-esteem and boost your confidence

Treatment and Philosophy
Whatever is happening for you right now, that’s where we’ll start. It all begins with wherever we’ve found ourselves at this moment, whether that is anxious, scared, depressed, confused, heartbroken, or otherwise in some kind of pain we don’t know how to get out of on our own. I work with clients to create the kinds of internal shifts that result in meaningful and lasting change, stronger connections, and an increased sense of, “I’ve got this” to whatever life brings .

Who I Treat
Individuals, Families, and Couples. I specialize in helping adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, as well as substance use and body-image-related issues. I help good people who have difficult problems take the necessary steps to make their lives and relationships become better, more productive, and easier.

About Me
I draw from evidence-based techniques and methodologies that I have seen and experienced as being effective. My perspective fuses elements of traditional Western psychology with Eastern philosophies of healing (such as mindfulness meditation, yoga and other mind/body practices). I won't give you band-aid solutions, because I'm much more interested in getting to the root cause of issues in order to support your true healing.

Education and Credentials
I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and a Bachelors of Arts from the University of California Santa Barbara. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Lic. #96691). I have also studied under exceptional psychoanalysts and functional psychiatrists. As a psychotherapist, I have trained in the modalities most effective in facilitating balance, creativity, and capacity to heal from the past and move forward with authenticity.

$120 per 50-minute session
*At times I am able to offer a sliding scale to accommodate those in financial need, so don't hesitate to call.
Insurance: While I don't accept insurance directly for payment, if you have a PPO which reimburses for out of network mental health providers, I can provide you with a bill of services that you can then submit to your provider for reimbursement. It's worth a call to your provider to find out, as some reimburse up 70%.
Payment: Cash, Check, Credit, and Paypal
