SoCal IFT Main Line:
FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
Everyone has the capacity to grow, shift, and change. As a licensed marriage and family therapist working in the mental health field for over 17 years, I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we can build a therapeutic alliance built on trust and empathy. Together we will explore your feelings, experiences, and challenges as part of your journey to finding personal fulfillment in a safe way.
To achieve your goals, I bring creativity and integrated approaches to the therapeutic experience that are catered to your specific needs. I have extensive training in psychodynamic approaches as well as various trauma modalities like Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing-EMDR (Certified), Attachment-Focused EMDR, Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems with EMDR, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and more.
Additionally, I have a background in music, songwriting, and drama. When appropriate, I incorporate expressive arts into the therapeutic treatment. I aim to learn about your uniqueness and work with you on finding approaches that address your unique needs. This is something that we will do together.
I look forward to learning more about you.
