Perhaps you may be experiencing overwhelming feelings associated with depression, anxiety, self-destructive habits or relationship issues. In my private practice, I strive to create a safe place that is supportive and empathetic to each individual’s needs. I believe this type of environment encourages deep exploration and fosters courage and hope to grow and change. This growth and change can open the door to an improved sense of well-being, deeper relationships, and the reduction of painful symptoms and emptiness.
I have had the privilege and good fortune to work in the mental health field for over 10 years. After earning dual Master’s Degrees from Loyola Marymount University I worked with a diversity of children, adolescents, and their families. I supported them with their struggles with learning disabilities, life transitions, crisis, relational issues, depression, and anxiety. I worked collaboratively with South Bay schools to create educational plans that tailored to individual’s needs and optimized academic performance.
I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP 2721) and have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I have received advanced training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Wright Institute Los Angeles (WILA) through the completion of their Doctoral Internship and Postgraduate Certificate Program. I continue to receive training from WILA working with adults and couples in various capacities.
In my private practice, I treat clients dealing with depression, anxiety, distressing life events, relationship problems, self-destructive habits, and desire for growth and change.
I work with adults, couples and adolescents; offering a no-cost initial consultation in-person or via phone. During this initial meeting, we have the opportunity to discuss what brings you to therapy and determine whether we want to work together.
I look forward to meeting you.

My goal is to provide a space without judgement and full of respect, to help you create a plan to move forward in a healthy direction, physically, mentally and emotionally. In getting to know you, I am just as interested in finding out what works well in your life, as I am in understanding what is not working for you.
My focus on Clinical Health Psychology has enabled me to understand how intricately the mind and body work together and effect one another. Ongoing stress has detrimental effects on the mind and body. We can work together to uncover potential causes, and learn to work through, change, or accept the things that are unavoidable.
When dealing with major physical issues, our mental and emotional states change significantly; however, challenging circumstances can ultimately create a window of opportunity for growth and introspection. Growth generally takes time and getting there is rarely without difficulty. I feel privileged to have helped people navigate through those difficult feelings, and come out with renewed perspective to live fulfilling lives.
I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and their families through various emotional concerns, medical issues, relationships, transitional life periods, bereavement, and addiction.
The most important aspect of lasting change is the development of an open and honest relationship with the therapist you choose. It would be my pleasure to meet with you and discuss whether working together is the right decision for you and invite you to come in for a free consultation over the phone or in person.

Seeking support is a courageous and powerful step, yet finding a therapist to trust with your unique needs may seem challenging. My work centers on building a deep connection and trust with my clients which in turn allows them the opportunity to truly connect with themselves. My sincere intention is to help people better understand who they are in relation to others and achieve any aspirations they may have for themselves and their lives.
I work with clients to create lasting change that starts with developing individual goals for therapy so that our work together has a clear direction. The discovery process is entirely individual and requires a personal desire for growth, reflection, and a willingness to be challenged. Therapy is also frequently one of the most significant and meaningful experiences in life in which major turning points and breakthroughs can happen.
I am highly sensitive to issues of diversity and have helped many clients to better understand their unique experiences of difference by working within the therapeutic relationship where my focus is for you to feel deeply seen and understood. I have experience working with adults, adolescents and couples, dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, loss of desire and frustration in relationships, anger management, sexual dysfunction, low self-esteem, and identity development.
Ultimately, a great fit in the therapeutic relationship is the goal, and I look forward to assisting you in finding your way.
