My Approach to Helping

When the year began, you had plans for living a more wholesome, authentic life. You had plans on cultivating more fulfilling relationships. And then, this pandemic happened. Life seems uncertain right now and you worry that the longer social distancing is in place, the more isolated and lonely you’ll feel. Your usual self-care routines have been disrupted, and the perfectionist in you is having a hard time accepting that there is no perfect way to cope through a pandemic. I get it. Uncertainty can cause anyone overwhelm and exhaustion.

You now have the time to allow yourself a safe place to process held concerns. A place where you don’t have to be “on” or hold the weight of it all. You’re wanting some strategies to help cope with fear and anxiety head on. You’re also ready to take a look at some other areas of your life in need of care and deeper healing. I can help you get there.

Not only do I have years of clinical experience to assist you with this, but I personally know the support it takes to get past stuck places like your well-being depends on it. As your Therapist, you can expect me to be warmly engaging, attentive, and direct. I offer video and phone sessions to all CA -Residents and College Students. Just visit my website or call to schedule a free 20-minute phone consult today.

More Info About My Practice

Many new clients want to get past the stuck places in their personal lives, careers, and relationships. I help them arrive at a place of balance and fulfillment by treading these challenging areas with them and helping them increase the skills and awareness needed to go out and start living the life they actually want.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

These may also be individuals who are looking to heal from wounds of complex trauma experienced from past abuses and a childhood history of emotional neglect. I help them recognize what they might not have considered being experiences of trauma and its present-day knotting effect on their lives.
