Taking the steps to explore therapy can be vulnerable and intimidating. Finding a therapist you connect with is key. I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in the Carlsbad area. My goal is to foster an open, trusting, non-judgmental, and collaborative environment in which clients can feel comfortable to express themselves. My passion is rooted in assisting clients through their journey to achieve goals, find fulfillment, and explore themselves in a safe and caring space.
I have a client-centered and integrative approach to therapy, utilizing therapeutic modalities which best fit a client and their needs. I pull from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Strategic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I have experience addressing depression, anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, trauma, substance abuse, relationship issues, identity discovery, LGBTQ+, divorce, parenting, and couples. When working with couples I take an eclectic approach combining EFT, Gottman, and Imago Relationship Therapy in order to rebuild the foundation, improve communication, promote intimacy, and strengthen the relationship.
I look forward to working alongside you in your growth!
