My Approach to Helping

If you are feeling stuck, disconnected, or having trouble coping with anxiety or depression, you are not alone. You may be struggling to find balance in your life, or noticing that attachment and trauma from childhood is impacting you presently. Perhaps you recently lost a loved one, are navigating a new chapter of life that has you feeling anxious, or just feel like you are stuck in a rut and need someone to talk to. I work with adults and teensadolescents on addressing anxiety and depression, unpacking past experiences, improving emotional regulation, building healthy boundaries with loved ones, healthy self-esteem, and more.

As a therapist, I provide a challenge-support environment where I encourage you to reflect and explore your values while providing empathy, warmth, and humor. Therapy can be scary because we are asked to go outside our comfort zones, but growth stems from change. I utilize a myriad of theoretical approaches to find a style that works best for you. I utilize many different approaches to therapy and find the style that works best for you. I am transparent, honest, and center the client in the therapy process and my goal is to create an environment where you feel comfortable sharing what is working and not working about therapy.

For LGBTQIA+ identifying individuals, I provide gender and sexuality affirming therapy and can work with you on identity exploration, navigating queer relationships, or coping with the impact of stigma, discrimination, and bias. I identify as part of the queer community and am familiar with many of the stressors and complexities of queer life. My therapy office is an accepting and safe space.

Therapy is the best gift that you can give yourself. Reach out today to get started!

More Info About My Practice

I offer in-person appointments on Mondays and Tuesdays at my office located in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego County. Our office is comfortable, colorful, and easily accessible. I offer telehealth appointments on Wednesday and Thursdays from my home office. Clients are always welcome to request both in-person and telehealth appointments as needed. Our in person offices follow local and state regulations regarding wearing masks. There is currently no mask mandate. I request that if you are feeling sick, COVID or otherwise, that you attend your session virtually until symptoms pass. Out of respect for others' health and safety, if I receive a positive COVID test, my personal rule is to conduct all meetings virtually until I can ensure a negative COVID diagnosis regardless of CDC or other guidelines.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I always knew that I wanted to work in a job where I got to connect and help people. I started my career in higher education, helping college students navigate the transition to adulthood. The best moments of that job was connecting with students and listening to them talk about the difficult things--feeling homesick, struggling to adjust to a new environment, and fears of academic failure--and being able to comfort and support them. I decided to pivot careers to become a therapist because I am passionate about being able to provide a space where someone can be vulnerable and honest about how they are feeling without fear of judgment. I love my job because I have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life who inspire and impress me with their resiliency. I enjoy helping other people but also being able to learn from them, and I get to do that every day at work!

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Sometimes, we think that going to therapy should be reserved for when we have reached "rock bottom", are in crisis, or are really suffering. I believe that therapy should be a part of your holistic health plan--taking care of your brain is a part of taking care of your overall physical health. You do not need to be in crisis or severe suffering to benefit from therapy. If you are thinking about whether or not you should consider therapy, the answer is that you are probably ready to reach out and start the process.
