Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am an experienced holistic Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT #129593) who is dedicated to guiding adults with anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relational distress.
I take a holistic approach to therapy to meet you where you are, whatever that looks like. I know that there are different orientations in addition to each one of us having unique needs, coming from diverse cultures and life conditions. To honor you and your lived experience, I get to know you, and engage with you conversationally to get a feel for how best I can support you in your particular phase of healing. I am also cognizant that support might look different at various phases of therapy. I draw upon the clinical education and training that I have received; but most importantly, I utilize my intuition and my learning and witnessing of you to guide me. This connection building leads to a more intimate experience. It is my intention that you feel more integrated, authentic, and whole.
My style is compassionate, calm, collaborative, and genuine. In session, I offer an interactive style based on trust and respect so that you don’t feel alone in your experience and that you feel safe to embody whatever arises within you. I integrate the physical body, emotions, nervous system, mind, and spirit. I received rigorous training in the following disciplines that I draw upon: depth psychology; psychodynamic psychology; somatic therapy; trauma-informed therapy (EMDR and Trauma Resiliency Model); addiction medicine and recovery; cognitive behavioral therapy; modern attachment theory; mindfulness; art therapy, meditation; executive coaching; yoga; and, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. I specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, life transitions, relational distress, chronic health conditions, bereavement, codependency, and spirituality.
Prior to receiving my License in Marriage & Family Therapy #129593, graduating from Pacifica Graduate Institute, I pursued international development and community health sciences conducting research and working throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, I worked in the health and wellness industry ranging from nutrition and health coaching to yoga instruction. My life’s work is dedicated to wellbeing and I look forward to exploring your inner world together.
