About My Clients
You may be mindlessly scrolling through your social media feed of choice and feeling like you just don't stack up, like you are failing. Maybe hard things have happened to you that continue to bother you, things that you haven't opened up about before that make it hard to enjoy your life and to feel connected with others.
My Background and Approach
I am a licensed clinical social worker, certified in EMDR, and trained in hypnotherapy, ACT, CBT, and parts work, among other modalities. I graduated with my masters degree from UCLA. As a certified yoga instructor, my practice is also firmly grounded in an understanding of the mind-body connection. I became a therapist because I care more about what lives inside us all, within the walls we may have built for our own protection, than about the façade that we show the world. I became a therapist to help people to feel less alone, to find freedom from their pasts, and to build richer lives. I can be your advocate and show you a kinder and more supportive way to treat yourself. Get the help you need to heal from painful experiences and start moving forward towards your dreams.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that we are all capable of change and healing. While we may unconsciously keep repeating the same patterns in life, we don't have to. Therapy can help to bring insight into the patterns, underlying beliefs, and connected past experiences that you may be stuck in and help you learn to develop new ways of feeling and being. I am a huge animal lover and my two dogs make my life immeasurably better. Cats are okay too. I believe in social justice, equality for all, and inclusivity. I want to help build a better world.
