My Approach to Helping

I believe we are much stronger than we think we are. Sometimes the problems we face try to convince us otherwise and have a way of concealing our strengths, leaving us feeling stuck. Life happens, but it doesn't have to make us feel powerless.

I partner with my clients to seek out new ways to stay grounded in the midst of the stuff life throws at them. Whether through processing past troublesome or traumatic experiences or exploring current difficult situations, I collaborate with you to find new ways of coping and to see what options are available to make the changes necessary to have a different, richer, and more fulfilled experience in life.

In addition to seeing individuals, I am passionate about working with couples, helping facilitate new ways of communicating, moving past the blame, shame, or threats that that can often create a stalemate within the relationship. I help couples navigate the difficult conversations that seem to be on repeat and create a space for each person to feel comfortable talking about the feelings that don't always get talked about. I work with a variety of relationship styles and types and employ a 'zero judgement' approach, which is an important cornerstone to my practice.

I also work with children and young adults ages 10-17 who experience a wide range of issues, including body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, problems at home and school, sexual identity, divorce, suicidal ideation, cutting, and death of a loved one. Through my experience working in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I learned that by honoring a young persons innate sense of playfulness coupled with finding ways to inspire their ripe imagination are the keys to fostering their engagement.

You've made your way to this website which means you've already taken the first step towards having a different experience in your life. If you choose to work with me, I commit to being someone who champions your right to living your preferred life and being in relationships that fulfill you.

You are not alone in your journey. I hope to have the opportunity to partner with you in creating a world that works for you.
