A Bit About Therapy

Personalized Attention for You and Your Family

I implement effective, evidenced-based therapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Therapy can help us develop new coping skills, problem solve, and change our feelings and behaviors. I offer child, family, and adult therapy in San Diego and specialize in trauma, depression, and anxiety work with children and as well as parent support and coaching.

Get to Know Me

As seen on a Sussex Directories Inc site

Welcome! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in California. I have an undergraduate degree from the University of California at San Diego and a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from National University, from which I graduated Summa cum Laude. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families, with a specialty in childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, and behavioral challenges.​ I work with parents/caregivers and children together to create an individualized treatment plan that supports each member while healing the family as a whole.

I have experience working in education-based support services as a school-contracted counselor. There I aided families to help schools and teachers meet students' individualized academic, social, and behavioral goals. I have training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and am nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am certified in Positive Discipline therapy and integrate parent/caregiver coaching into my work with children.

I believe a healthy body leads to a healthy mind, and utilize a holistic approach by incorporating mindfulness and positive lifestyle modification into treatment. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and completed an eight week intensive certification course in Health and Wellness: Designing a Sustainable Nutrition Plan from Harvard University School of Medicine.

I served on the Board of the California Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) San Diego, and volunteer as a Court-Appointed Special Advocate with foster youth. When not with clients, I love cooking, yoga, and reading books on the couch with my best cat friend, Henry.
