Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (CA)
Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (CA)
I treat clients across walks of life, but have found a focus in treating artists and creatives, as well as those undergoing life transition, such as break-ups and religious system/ family system deconstruction and reconstruction. Dealing with past and ongoing abuse and trauma are often part and parcel of this work. I am an EMDR therapist in training & consultation. This is a trauma and adverse life event centered therapy, for those who feel "stuck" in their current lives and are searching for the tools to move forward.
I practice from a mindfulness frame, within a holistic mind/body/spirit understanding. I work in collaboration with clients to develop the habits of self-compassion--a bedrock for resilience from shame--and keystone to personal and professional growth. These habits are the product of specific, portable, and repeatable exercises devised together in session.
I am a practicing writer, actor, and artist, and that creativity informs my work with all clients. I am honored to walk alongside others on their journey toward wholeness. Please feel free to reach out and we can talk so each of us can discern a fit. Even if I am not the right therapist for you, I want to help find you the right next step in your journey.
I am an associate therapists. My traineeship was at La Vie Counseling Center in Pasadena, CA, where I was mentored by expert therapists practicing intersubjective theory through a psychodynamic lens.
