About My Clients

What I love about being a therapist is the infinite myraid of challenges that walk through my door. I work with relationship or intimacy issues, infidelity, LGBTQIA+ couples, and parents of special needs children. I have experience with neurodivergent populations, mood disorders, addiction, trauma, severe psychiatric illness, personality disorder, and existential issues. I love teaching folks how to deepen self-expression and enjoy working with artists or creatives. I can't wait to meet you!

My Background and Approach

I have a variety of training that supports my passion for healing, and I continuously seek additional education to both deepen and expand my work. I graduated from Loyola Marymount University with an MA in Art Therapy/Marriage and Family Therapy. I have an art history BA from the University of Florida. Prior to becoming a therapist, I studied and worked as a yoga teacher and personal trainer. I completed a psychodynamic internship and am additionally trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT-C) and Trauma-Focused CBT. I can provide an eclectic mix of psychodynamic, CBT/DBT, mindfulness, and Trauma Resilience (TRM) interventions to support our work together. I have experience in both private practice and community mental health, and I am committed to a culturally curious stance in both my professional work and personal life. My diverse education allows me to be a flexible and creative therapist who considers the impact of whole-body wellness on your mental health.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy is a worthy challenge, and there is no one-size-fits-all treatment model. I utilize a diverse toolkit to match sessions to your needs, and will respond to your feedback to hold a customized space. I believe that therapy is a co-created healing experience, and I will not take a stance of authority over your mental health journey. I practice cultural humility and engage in personal social justice work through the ACLU and the Trevor Project. I participate in Citizens' Climate Lobby and feel strongly about sharing my privileges to make our global home a safe space for all. I offer sliding scale or sponsored therapy slots, please reach out if you are in need. When my therapist hat comes off, I employ the same healing practices in my own life. I am an artist, sewist, gardener, and enthusiastic home chef. I can often be found taking long walks with my dog, gifting friends with fresh kombucha or pickles, smiling at the sun or singing at the top of my lungs while driving around LA.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
