There are times in everyone’s lives where we find ourselves needing some additional support to get through the tough moments. Now more than ever we are experiencing increased stress and uncertainty, which may bring up a lot of negative and scary feelings. No matter what obstacle you find yourself facing in this moment, I am here to help you access the strength you have to overcome it! My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to work through the challenges they are facing. I empower my clients by supporting them as they process through their emotions and teach them practical tools to better navigate through life’s tough spots. I work with an eclectic and integrative approach, taking perspectives and interventions from various modalities to best fit you and your needs. This ensures that no matter what difficulty you are experiencing, we can find the right treatment plan for you.

I enjoy working with individuals, teens, and couples pulling from modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Strength Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Gottman, Emotion Focused Therapy. These modalities can assist clients in managing various issues including depression, anxiety, self-esteem, identity challenges, peer relationships, romantic relationships, family conflict, phase of life changes, body image, and anger management among others.

If you are ready to find the strength inside of you, reach out and set up a session! I am looking forward to assisting you on your journey of growth.

My education includes a BA in Psychology and a MA in Education with a Concentration in Counseling and Trauma Informed Care both from San Diego State University, and a MS in Counseling, Option in Marriage and Family Therapy from California State University, Long Beach. I was born and raised in San Diego and love living here! In my free time I enjoy finding the best vegan food around, going on walks through the parks, hanging with my cat, and spending time with family and friends!
