I strive to create a safe environment whereby my clients can explore their sense of self freely and without judgment. My theoretical approach is rooted in humanistic and person centered therapy. Every individual is unique and I believe it is important to have an integrated approach to therapy, utilizing various tools as needed.

I look forward to providing support and working together as a team to reach your mental health goals.

Hi there! I’m so glad you’re here. Life can be overwhelming at times with its many changes, challenges or stressors. Perhaps this is leaving you paralyzed and cut off or flooded with fear, grief, and confusion. You don’t have to navigate it alone. I want you to be able to feel more connected to yourself and others, resolve past hurts that may be holding you back and approach life with confidence and vitality.

In doing this, I can offer a space in which you can feel believed in, accepted and supported. I ultimately hope that in joining you in your journey I can help you improve your self-awareness, challenge any self defeating thought patterns and learn new tools that work best for you.

You have everything you need to heal and grow within you. Together let us see how we can tap into that and nurture the power that exists inside of you.

Do you feel like you are just surviving and not thriving? If you are seeking change for yourself or in your relationships, I would like to help you envision and implement strategies to get you to a better mindset. True change comes from within yourself. It is a process requiring courage, respect and love of yourself. My empathetic, energetic, motivational style allows even the difficult topics to be explored or addressed.

I love the Gottman Method to improve relationships and am fascinated by the unconscious mind. It takes belief in your "self" to change the way you connect and communicate with others. And that is why Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with Hypnosis, in my opinion, is the best way to change the self-defeating messages stored in your subconscious. I masterfully blend my knowledge and training into an approach that helps you build skills to manage anxiety, reduce depression, find moments of joy, and to believe in your "self".

I received my master’s from Loyola University Chicago. I am currently registered as an ASW in the state of California but have been a Licensed Clinical Social Work since 1991 in the state of Illinois. My background includes work experiences in a variety of settings: Mental Health Centers, Inpatient Units, Mental Health Crisis Teams, Partial Hospital Programs and Out-patient Private Practice. I am certified in Hypnosis from the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis as well as trained In EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Interpersonal Therapy, and the Gottman Method. I welcome the opportunity to help you feel good about yourself and those that matter to you.

I have been in practice for almost 17 years. I have experience with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression all the way to addictions and schizophrenia. My theoretical modality is Psychodynamic and Bowenian. Because of my theoretical view my belief of therapy comes down to a couple of things: relationship with self and others and communication. These, I believe, are the principles of healthy or unhealthy relationships. When we are able to communicate our needs and wants effectively we are more content in ourselves and with ourselves and others.

Couples, Families, Adults, Adolescence, LGBTQ (Adult, Adolescence, Parents, Religious).

I graduated from National University with a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology, with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. I completed my practicum at High Tech Middle School North County in Vista, CA., where I was a Counselor who provided psychotherapy for adolescents and their families.

My theoretical approach is rooted in existential therapy and Gestalt therapy; however, I believe that an integrated approach to therapy is a valuable tool in helping my clients gain a balanced perspective on the life issues they are facing. I also believe humor is a valuable tool in counseling. If a client desires, I will incorporate spirituality into the therapy I provide.

I view therapy as a collaborative, sharing experience and seek to help my clients feel safe, comfortable, and truly understood.

I look forward to working with you on your mental health journey.
