I am a trauma-informed, psychodynamically oriented therapist working to help my clients achieve growth and live fulfilled, empowered lives.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena, CA
Working from an attachment-based framework, I assist families in repairing ruptures through improved communication and a focus on empathy.
I specialize in traumatic grief and loss, and sub-specialize in working with parents who are navigating the uniquely unbearable pain of losing a child.
As a trauma specialist, I work with both acute and complex trauma, with a subspecialty in relational trauma. I utilize an integrative approach, as well as EMDR when indicated.
Helping clients to formulate a cohesive narrative, especially in cases of trauma, is one of my primary approaches.
I pay close attention to fostering the therapist-client relationship, using it as the template for growth and learning.
