“Finding yourself" is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. You are also not lost...finding yourself is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.”  

~ Emily McDowell

My Approach

Bio

I use an existential, narrative philosophy to inspire meaning-making, insight exploration and curiosity. Using a person-centered humanistic approach, I collaborate with my clients to create a safe place for self-discovery.  

 

I incorporate elements of mindfulness, EMDR, body work and DBT skills as well as narrative techniques and parts work. Above all, the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship we will cultivate together in session, which is in and of itself an invaluable tool. I value the concepts of authenticity, comfort and client autonomy in the therapy space. We will always go at your own pace.

So, without further ado, I invite you to grab a blanket, a soul-warming mug of tea, and make yourself as comfortable as can be. Let us begin. 

Reconnection and celebration of my true self has become an integral part of my life and practice. I cherish joy, play, and fostering deep connections with others. 

I graduated from California State University Northridge with my bachelors and received my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Touro University. 

I have been with and trained at Southern California Counseling Center for four years, where I have witnessed and been humbled by the incredible journeys of my clients. In addition to working with individuals, couples and children, I have facilitated a variety of groups, including teen/childrens' grief groups with Our House, a social anxiety support group with Anita Avedian (LMFT), and a trauma-informed womens' anger management / DV group.
