If you are searching for a therapist, this is a time in your life when you are ready to make a change either in your personal life, professional life, or relationship. You may feel fatigued, burned out, or stuck. You may feel disconnected in your relationship, struggling with anxiety or depression, or dealing with addiction. Perhaps you are grieving or experiencing some form of grief or loss.
It is my honor to assist you in your brave decision to seek therapy. The therapist/client relationship is a unique relationship, allowing you the space to be heard and process whatever you feel with intelligent, compassionate feedback.
I have 20 years of experience working with individuals and couples. I utilize a client centered Holistic approach along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help my clients find balance in their lives. I specialize in grief and loss, relationship issues, teenagers, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, new mothers, and couples counseling.
I received a B.A. Degree in Sociology and a minor in Psychology from San Diego State University. I then went on to earn a M.A. Degree In Counseling Psychology from National University. My past work experiences include San Diego Youth and Community Services, YWCA, Mental Health Systems, Palomar Family Counseling, and Psychiatric Centers at San Diego.

My Mentors for Neurofeedback include La Jolla Neurofeedback and Biosystems in Rancho Bernardo. I offer Neurofeedback Services for Anxiety and ADHD, as well as peak performance.
I have helped many clients become free of their Psych Medication while working in conjunction with their Primary doctor or Psychiatrist. Please see my website for more information regarding Neurofeedback.
