About My Clients

Struggling with anxiety or depression, but resistant to medication or are hoping to merge off it? If so, I'd like to support you with that. Truth is, medication is often just a temporary fix that provides no long term solution, not to mention the harmful side effects. Holistic and somatic practices can help reduce anxiety and assist you in tapping into internal resources for a more empowered way of healing. I look forward to teaching you tools to liberate you and help take back your life.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic style is heart-centered, open-minded, and unconditional acceptance. My approach is an integration of mindfulness, breath work, somatic experiencing, meditation, yoga, CBT, narrative and psychodynamic modalities. When working with children, I use play therapy games and activities. I believe it is crucial to incorporate parents into the therapeutic process. I am a certified kundalini yoga and meditation teacher and have a wide variety of mediation, mindfulness and breath work tools to draw upon that are easy and accessible regardless of whether or not you have any experience. I am also trained in level one of The Trauma Resiliency Model. If you are ready to begin your journey, please contact me to set up a free 15 minute phone consultation or schedule an appointment. I work in the Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach offices. Additionally, Pacific MFT Network provides out of network billing for PPO insurance plans. I look forward to the possibility of working with you.
