My Approach to Helping

I started Mended Families to help adults and children navigate difficult family and life transitions. I\'m a psychotherapist who specializes in working with individuals, couples, and families navigating separation, divorce, and remarriage or repartnering. As someone who grew up in a blended and multicultural family, and who now has her own blended family, I am passionate about providing support for all types of families, and understand first-hand how difficult and rewarding nontraditional families can be.

In addition to individual, couples, and family counseling, I also offer a newly developed type of therapy for these unique families called Pre-Blending Family Therapy. This specialized therapy includes a mixture of individual, couples, and family sessions to help those who plan to merge their families prepare for the common challenges blended families face and to enhance their success as a cohesive family unit.

As a culturally sensitive therapist, I use a mindfulness-based approach and have an open, nonjudgmental stance when working with clients. I am a proud LGBTQIA+ ally and welcome working with people from diverse backgrounds.

More Info About My Practice

Throughout my career, I have worked with individuals, couples, and families impacted by anxiety, depression, bipolar I and II, trauma- and stressor-related disorders, ADHDADD, abuse and sexual violence, grief and loss, pregnancy and postpartum issues, infertility, intimate partner violence, anger issues, transition to parenthood, and more.

I received a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, and Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Women’s Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. I am certified in Psychological First Aid and PREPAREENRICH as a facilitator. I will also soon be a certified yoga instructor, and have had special training in yoga for anxiety and depression, meditation, parenting interventions, family mediation, and play therapy.
