Life is like the ocean; it can provide you with fantastic beauty or knock you down, and it is
constantly changing. I am passionate about helping people build their sense of self, develop
their skills and talents, and improve their quality of life. Relationships can be joyous and
challenging at the same time. I meet clients where they are on their journey and travel alongside
them. With empathy and unconditional positive regard, I hope to build a cooperative therapeutic
My clinical experience includes offering holistic therapy to children, teens, and adults struggling
with anxiety, trauma, depression, and issues associated with neurodiversity. I also have
experience working with families and parents to improve their relationships. My approach is
strength-based, person-centered, and compassionate. I incorporate an integrative approach
using evidence-based techniques from play therapy, DBT, ACT, EFT, and narrative therapy.
My education includes earning my BS in Biology and MS in Education from UCSD and my MA
in Counseling Psychology from Pepperdine University. I’m proud to be a Californian with three
amazing children and a wonderful husband. I offer a nurturing, understanding, and accepting
space for my clients to heal and grow.
