About My Clients

Navigating the journey of pregnancy, prenatal care, the postpartum period, grief/loss, miscarriage, IVF, or being a single parent can be difficult, but you don’t have to go through it alone. In addition to specializing in women’s health, I also use my skill set & training to help adults & couples better cope with anxiety, depression, & life transitions. I offer a safe space where we work together to explore strategies, uncover root causes, develop tools, helping you emerge more resilient.

My Background and Approach

My approach is rooted in empathy & evidence-based techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused & Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use Gottman techniques when working with couples & am client-centered. We'll collaborate on a treatment plan that suits your needs & goals to uncover your inner strength & create a path to a more fulfilling future. My goal is to give you a variety of different tools, like anxiety/depression coping skills, stress management skills, acceptance skills, & strength building skills to help you find the words to express how you are feeling, leaving you feeling confident in different environments & situations. I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in California, that is dedicated to helping you reach your goals & build a healthier life with healthier relationships. If you are located in the state of California, I provide online therapy sessions & am in-network with Aetna, Cigna/Evernorth & accept cash pay.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe learning about who you are, navigating difficult phases of life, & growing as an individual is an ongoing process. Throughout our lives we can pick up unhealthy behaviors that can affect us into adulthood. I believe that by restructuring & focusing on values, we can change those unhealthy beliefs into something more healthy and realistic. Throughout my life, I have cultivated a set of beliefs that serve as the foundation for my interactions with others & shape the person I strive to be. At the core of these beliefs is a deep commitment to non-discrimination & treating every individual with respect & fairness. I believe that every person, regardless of their background, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic, deserves to be treated with dignity and equality.
