About My Clients
What I love about therapy is the journey, helping my clients, as they identify and enact value driven choices, accomplishing goals that promote actualizing the meaningful life in which they envision. In a welcoming, judgement free, sex-positive, affirming environment, together in partnership with you. You and I will mindfully customize my approach to meet your unique needs and comfort level, to bring about growth and change that goes beyond relieving distress.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I value therapy, my prices are intentionally on the lower end for those who do not have the luxury of private insurance or may not want to be limited by their insurance provider. I only accept out of pocket payments, upon request I can provide a super-bill for you to submit to your insurance provider. I would be honored to walk alongside you as you embark on this incredibly enriching journey. You can also reach out to me through www.socal-acbs.org/team-4
