I specialize in individual, couples, and family therapy. I maintain a private practice centrally located in the Sorrento Mesa area, which serves all of San Diego County.
I've been working as a therapist since 2006. My work includes a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are anxiety and depression, OCD, life transitions (marriage, family addition, career or job change, etc.), grief and loss, chronic pain and illness, addictions, families dealing with Alzheimer's, terminal illness, and trauma.
In addition to my private practice, I also work at a local psychiatric hospital with adults challenged with persistent severe mental illness, such as Schizophrenia, BiPolar Disorder, and Schizoaffective Disorder. It is for this work that I have twice been nominated at the County level, for Mental Health Clinician, by a college of my peers.
I am kind, compassionate, highly interactive, and solution-focused in my approach to therapy. During therapy, you are the center of the universe. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help guide you through personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored specifically to you! With the utmost compassion and understanding, I work with you, to help you build upon your strengths, regain hope and balance, and attain the personal growth you are committed to achieving.
Prior to my work as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I maintained a holistic health practice with emphasis on the mind-body-spirit connection. The body has an innate ability to heal itself. It is this same wholistic approach that I embrace in my own life, and that I use to help you integrate your whole-being so that you may live in joy, and happiness. Most of my current and past clients have sought me out, specifically for this approach.
