My Approach to Helping

I offer support in coming into greater clarity, connection, self assuredness, ease and peace about the past, where you are now, and where you hope to go or get to within yourself and relationships. If you are feeling stifled by anxiety, depression or overwhelm, are trying to navigate decisions about your life and relationships, are wanting to change patterns, heal from trauma, or are processing grief, loss and change, I may be the therapist for you. I love supporting individuals through these sorts of challenges and more. Email me to setup a free consultation.

Life can be hard and confusing! Uncertainty can be overwhelming. Whatever you are experiencing, you do not have to go through it alone. I use a client centered, compassionate, and integrative approach to therapy; incorporating mind, body, spirit as well as considering community and cultural contexts to help clients engage in authentic and deep work. I offer a range of therapeutic modalities to support clients in their self discovery. I love providing mental health education and I also often use somatic practices and mindfulness to help clients heal from the inside out.

It’s a big step to seek support. Your life is important and worthy of care. Therapy is not always easy but neither is living in discomfort. You can get to the other side. If you have landed on my page and think we would work well together please call for a free consultation and I would be glad to discuss options with you.

More Info About My Practice

I am currently seeing clients online by video or phone. I see clients located all over California. I also offer therapy intensives, or guided self retreats individualized to fit your needs and desires so that you can do a deep dive in a more concentrated session than a typical 50 minute therapy session. This might look like setting up a 2 - 4 hour block of time to go through an extensive therapeutic process. Please reach out if you are interested in this service.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I became a psychotherapist because I love people and I am awed and humbled by the range of our human experience. I draw upon my passion for art, psychology, spirituality and nature to support people to engage in authentic, healing and deep work. Working with a range of ages from children to elders, I find that each stage of life comes with a unique set of challenges and gifts.

I believe that in bringing consciousness and intentionality to the important moments in our lives we can create a life that is profound, beautiful, deep, connected and meaningful. Helping people to recognize, reflect on, integrate, heal and celebrate these moments is what I do.
