About My Clients

Do you feel lost, numb, or disconnected? Like someone else took over and you completely lost control? Have you experienced trauma that changed your life and it feels like you will never be able to heal from it? I specialize in creating space that feels extraordinarily safe for you to explore the depths of what is causing your pain. You don't have to go through this alone, and you don't have to continue suffering. It is possible to feel whole again.

My Background and Approach

I have been practicing therapy since 2011. With my doctorate degree in Depth Psychology, I have specialized training to work with spiritual / meaning of life issues, dreams/nightmares, trauma, identity, and recovery from mood disorders and addiction. I want people to feel safe, supported, and accepted in therapy. In 2012, I graduated with my M.A. in Counseling from University of San Diego. I became licensed as an LPCC in 2015. I completed my Ph.D. in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2018. In addition to my private practice, I currently work as a clinical supervisor at two community mental health clinics.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In therapy, my focus will be on you and your goals. That being said, it may be helpful for you to know a little about me. My own recovery journey has helped me approach therapy with humility and an open mind. I believe that people should be able to discuss anything they need to in therapy- and that it's often what we avoid talking about that keeps us stuck in the same old patterns. Breaking silence can be difficult and painful, but it can also be liberating and transformative. I value autonomy, social justice, and inclusive practices.
