About My Clients

Whether it's your first time in therapy or you are looking for a new therapist, I honor the journey that you are in and strive to make the process of therapy approachable, engaging, empowering, hopeful, and collaborative. I value learning about who you are, what is important to you, and what changes you want to see in your life. In our work together, you will gain deeper insight into patterns that aren't serving you or your relationships, and develop valuable tools to manage difficult emotions.

My Background and Approach

Licensed in both CA & FL, I work with individuals to help them better understand themselves, others, their emotions. and challenges. Therapy with me includes exploring your identities and values that are meaningful to you, while identifying how your life is aligned with them. I have the upmost respect and honor for those who I work with, and strive to create a therapeutic space where you can feel heard, empowered, where we can have challenging and also celebratory conversations. These are key factors for change. I also will teach you tools on how to manage tough emotions and regulate your thoughts. This is where mindfulness practice can come in, or a different approach based on your needs and interests. I also value mutuality in our therapeutic relationship. This means that I'll provide feedback to you, and also invite your feedback and perspective on your experience as well. I view you as the expert in your life and I serve as an unbiased support to help guide you towards change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I truly believe we can all benefit from therapy, whether it's to address specific and current life challenges, build on coping strategies, have a space where our voice is heard, explore who we are, and/or to address ongoing challenges that have been keeping us stuck in a life that feels less than ideal. I also believe in a holistic approach to treatment and implementing this approach in my own life. The mind, body, social, and spiritual connection is all in play and has a profound impact on how we function, feel, and view the world. When not providing therapy, I enjoy being outdoors, being active, and enjoy any views that includes the water, mountains, and animals in nature. I enjoy opportunities to learn about cultures different from my own, and find vegan cooking to be my own creative outlet. Meditation and yoga, along with strength training and hiking are ways that I enjoy engaging in self-care and self-compassion. I look forward to learning more about you in our work together!
