My Approach to Helping
What if we focused more on solutions, and less on problems? Together, we can set your goal and get you to where you want to be.
My experience enables me to offer effective, individualized psychological care. I treat a number of mental health issues, and provide a neutral ground to explore the issues that bring you in. My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by connecting with you in a safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan that works for you! I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you stay present, grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with stressful and difficult circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger when we feel overwhelmed by life's tasks. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of renewing your self-care and strength.
Two of my specialties are grief & loss and chronic illness. Dealing with chronic illness has multiple layers. Some of what you may be struggling with could be feelings of loss, an overall sense of hopelessness, lack of support and trouble connecting to resources. Counseling can be beneficial to people who are managing a loss or chronic illness and need that extra bit of support. My other specialties lie in providing therapy for therapists! I remember being there! It can be hard to find a trusted therapist who supports, encourages, keeps you grounded and on the right path. I have been supervising and providing therapy to interns, pre-doctoral, post-doctoral students and early career clinicians since 2009. Mentoring and gently challenging are two of my greatest strengths. Sometimes, even the therapist needs a therapist! Let's chat if you think some extra support would be beneficial to you and your clients!
I’ve worked in many different settings since 2009, beginning with psychiatric facilities treating individual adults with a wide range of issues. CurrentIy, I offer both in office and telehealth therapy. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with Pacific Coast Psychiatric Associates located in Agoura Hills, CA.
