I provide individual therapy for a range of issues including stress, grief, multi-cultural issues, anxiety, and depression. I have a specialty in trauma (current, previous, intergenerational). I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) as the primary treatment modality for trauma work. Treatment provided for California residents only.

I am about the soft life. Soft life is a life of self-care where you make yourself a priority. It is a life that emphasizes reduced stress, dispelling false narratives and good boundaries. You are worthy and it is your time to breath.

I have been practicing Social Work for 24 years and received my master’s degree in 1998 from Columbia University and Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary. I have an integrative, psycho-spiritual focus and incorporate metaphysical techniques and understanding into my work with clients. My approach is open-minded and open hearted, encouraging empowerment, insight, and practical tools. I am open to all spiritual perspectives and describe my practice as holistic psychotherapy with a focus on the mind, body, and spirit connection. I would be honored to join you on your journey of self-healing, self-love, empowerment, and wellness.
