About My Clients

Are experiences from the past are affecting you today? Do you had negative thoughts, and wonder where they come from? It's not in your values to be hard on yourself, or have low self-esteem, but you might not know how to get out of the cycle. My clients often come to me after they've tried everything-yoga, meditation, self help books, and nothing has gotten them exactly where they want to be. Together, we can figure out how to turn all that negative energy in a direction that serves you!

My Background and Approach

I've been a therapist for over a decade, working with people with severe mental illness, homelessness, and substance abuse before starting my private practice. My approach is direct, but always curious to understand you first, and I know how to make you feel comfortable if you are nervous about coming to therapy. I use humor and smile a lot in therapy, even when times are tough. I create a place where you can feel comfortable to be who you really are, and from that place of authenticity, you can create the life you prefer. I have training in several evidence based practices, but I'm pretty eclectic in my approach, and tailor the work to what you want and what works best for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an advocate of Gender, Sexuality, and Relationship Diversity (GSRD), and am a member of the San Diego GSRD therapist's group. I'm very excited to be on Therapy Den, and aligned with their mission to provide a more progressive platform for finding therapy. I love helping people get connected to therapy, even if it's not with me, because I think this work is so important, and it has helped me so much in my own life.
