My Approach to Helping

I am not accepting clients at this time.

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with 20 years' experience working with a variety of people and issues that show up in therapy. I enjoy working equally with individual, couples, children, teens & families. I love my field and I feel privileged to be on the therapy journey with my clients. Sometimes one of the hardest step is asking for help and support.

I like to use a combination of outcome based/ or "best practice" approaches to therapy for whatever specific issue a client presents. The treatment process is with you and you are the expert on your life and life experiences. I will bring my professional expertise to therapy. Together we work to use the best approach, techniques, modality, etc., including adjuncts, to facilitate healing, change, and wellness toward your goals. We will develop this plan together during the assessment process.

More Info About My Practice

I'm licensed in California and in Costa Rica, as well as in process for licensing in North and South Carolina. I have just started a telehealth practice as a contractor with Talkspace (telehealth therapy) and I will post my link to that practice when it is available, this will be only for clients in the state(s) in which I am licensed.

My Role as a Therapist

I believe my role as a therapist is to be a guide. Along with the client, we work together towards achieving goals in the area of wellness. My role as a guide is to make sure the work we do is in line with your therapeutic goals.
