About My Clients

Are you experiencing a significant life challenge? Do you feel overwhelmed as if there's no path forward? Have relational/communication issues become too much? Do you feel stuck, repeating old patterns? I have extensive training and experience dealing with the stresses and rigors of life and overcoming difficulties, while also finding joy, meaning and a path forward. I can support you with respect to: grief/loss, trauma, couples' work, growing up in abuse, and life transitions.

My Background and Approach

As a clinician, I believe empathy, curiosity, non-judgment and holding a safe space are of paramount importance. Our work together will be collaborative, tailored according to your individual goals and needs. No matter what comes up, we can handle it together. During our sessions, my hope is that you will feel heard, understood and seen. I will actively engage with you, listening and providing interpretation, reflection and feedback on what I hear and see. I am a 12 year member of Alanon and bring a deep understanding of 12-step work to sessions. I have worked through health concerns, the death of a sibling, relational difficulties, moving countries growing up, and a variety of additional significant life challenges. I bring this knowledge as well as my strength, wisdom, intuition and empathy to our sessions. I graduated from Antioch University with a Masters in Clinical Psychology. I also have a JD/MBA from USC.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I trained at Open Paths Counseling Center from April 2019 – November 2021 where I saw diverse clients and ran a support/process group. In addition, I went through Basic EMDR Training through EMDRIA, have experience with Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and am a pre-licensed member of CAMFT. I am also a long-standing member of Alanon. Prior to my career as a therapist, I was a corporate/securities attorney for many years at several global law firms and at a technology company through its initial public offering. I have shifted my focus so that I can help those struggling in their lives. I am a Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (#118846) under the supervision of Dr. Zari Hedayat, PhD, LMFT (#22248).
