About My Clients

Whether it's your first time in therapy or you're looking for a new therapist, I strive to make the process of therapy approachable, engaging, empowering, hopeful, and collaborative. I specialize in working with people who are young to middle-aged adults, new to therapy, are feeling challenged in relationships (family, friends, intimate), stressed out in their job/school, feel anxious, are high achieving, or have experienced trauma. I'll help you find hope, rebalance, make changes, & heal.

My Background and Approach

Licensed in both CA & FL, I work with individuals to help them better understand themselves, others, their emotions, & challenges. Therapy with me includes exploring your identities & values, while identifying how your life is aligned with them. We will also look at how aspects of your history are impacting your current experiences. I strive to create a space where you feel heard, empowered, can reflect, and where we can have challenging yet also celebratory conversations. These are key factors for change. I also will teach you tools on how to manage tough emotions & regulate your thoughts. This is where mindfulness practice can come in, or a different scientific-based approach based on your needs and interests. I also value mutuality in our therapeutic relationship. This means that I'll provide feedback to you, & also invite your feedback & perspective on your experience as well. I view you as the expert in your life and I serve as an unbiased support to help guide you towards change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we can all benefit from therapy, whether it's to address specific & current life challenges, build on coping strategies, have a space where our voice is heard, explore who we are, & address ongoing challenges that have been keeping us stuck in a life that feels unsatisfying and far from ideal. I believe in a holistic & integrative approach to treatment, which means we'll look at all areas of functioning from sleep, exercise/movement, nutrition, social media use, hobbies, social support, etc. When not providing therapy, I enjoy being outdoors, being active, and enjoy any views that includes the water, mountains, and animals in nature. I enjoy opportunities to learn about cultures different from my own, understand my experiences more deeply, & find vegan cooking to be my own creative outlet. Meditation, cycling, strength training & hiking are ways that I enjoy engaging in self-care and self-compassion. I look forward to learning more about you in our work together!
