I bring a compassionate, strengths-based approach to psychotherapy. It is important to me that you feel accepted, heard, and understood.
Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in California

I work with clients who are impacted by substance use concerns and addiction, including those with a loved one who is struggling with substance use and addiction. I have training in the Seeking Safety treatment curriculum and often incorporate the skills and insights of this treatment model into my work with clients who are struggling with substance use or trauma. Reach out to schedule a consultation to determine if my services may be a good fit for you.
Trauma is the impact of events and experiences that overwhelm the nervous system and are experienced as a threat to life. These are often events that tear our lives apart, although smaller, repeated ruptures can also have a devastating and traumatic impact on the psyche. Finding safety again and putting the pieces back together is a difficult process, and I am honored to walk along this path with you. I use the Seeking Safety curriculum with clients who are working through trauma and PTSD.
Rage, frustration, denial, the surreal, deep sadness, love, longing, numbness, guilt, nightmares, strange dreams -- Grief can be a rollercoaster. And it can be hard to find the right support around this processes, particularly in a culture that sets up the expectation that we will be able to "move on" with our lives within a period of months. Your grief process is yours. Everyone deserves a space where their process and experience with grief will be met with compassion.
