I specialize in working with individuals and couples struggling with life transitions, anxiety, depression, career stress and relational issues. Whether concerned with friendships or romantic relationships, if you’re having difficulty establishing or maintaining connections, I provide a welcoming and supportive environment in which to address your concerns and help you move towards the fulfilling life you desire. My therapeutic approach is to provide empathy, support, and feedback through honest and authentic communication.

Life is complicated and unpredictable, and we all need support sometimes to help us navigate life’s challenges.  I believe that therapy should be tailored to fit your unique, individual needs within a safe, trusting, empathetic, nonjudgmental and collaborative relationship. I work with depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, trauma, grief/loss, major life transitions, terminal illness, and relationship struggles. In couple’s therapy, I guide my clients in identifying the negative patterns and exploring the emotions underneath the triggers and resentments so that we can begin to heal the hurt and create new positive and healthy ways to support one another.

My therapeutic approach involves creating a supportive and collaborative environment to help you tap into your immense capacity to heal and grow. I assist individuals, couples, and families of all ages, races, cultures and identities to address depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma, relationship, and other issues in order to enjoy more fulfilling lives. In my practice, I employ a variety of theoretical orientations, including: person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, emotionally-focused therapy, attachment theory, and family systems. I completed my Master’s in Counseling at Palo Alto University and spent several years working in government, community, and nonprofit legal fields prior to becoming a therapist. In addition, I am a parent. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and assist you on your journey.
