My Approach to Helping
Therapy can be an adventure. Explore a deeper part of yourself and your history. Learn how to effectively manage painful thoughts and feelings. Create a better relationship with yourself and others. Your feelings matter, your mind matters, your mental health matters.
More Info About My Practice
I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT 120116) providing individualized and integrative therapy for adults. I am passionate about supporting clients on their own journeys of self-exploration, reflection and development through talk therapy. I’m also the founder of Collective Space Therapy, promoting and advocating emotional and mental health for all people and communities in San Diego.
My treatment approach with clients is unique and collaborative, blending in elements from different techniques and tailoring treatment according to each individual’s needs. I’m experienced at incorporating psychodynamic, client-centered, humanistic, gestalt, existential, cognitive behavior, and mindfulness-based approaches.
I have an accepting, creative and empathic style and offer a relational model to help clients explore their inner selves. My practice supports the development of confidence, esteem and a stronger sense of self. I will meet you wherever you’re at in life and provide a safe, therapeutic environment for health, healing, and recovery.
My Guiding Ethical Principles
"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced." -James Baldwin
Collective Space Therapy stands with Black Lives Matter. A foundational philosophy of my practice is an active commitment to social and racial justice on an individual, community, institutional and global scale.
With an anti-oppressive framework, I hold a vision for providing modern mental health services that reflect the values of ethical and sustainable wellness.
