It is without a doubt that life experiences can feel complicated, overwhelming, and scary. You may be entering a new stage of life expecting a new baby, parenting, adjusting to a new job, having experienced loss, or even a traumatic event. You may find yourself feeling new or struggling with recurring feelings of sadness, anger, shame, anxiety, fear, or even grief. Possibly mourning the life you had, the people you had, or even the hopes you once had.
Whatever it is you seek on this journey my hope is to support you in working through the difficulties and support you in reaching your highest potential and building your optimal sense of self.
As a therapist, I am dedicated to assisting you in this process by providing the safety to look inward without judgment or expectation but with a sense of curiosity, understanding, and self-compassion. My approach is to join you on your journey and support you in accessing your inner strength, building purpose, hope, and the quality of your life that you deserve.
MS - Marriage and Family Therapy, University of California Dominguez Hills
My interest in therapy primarily began with my own journey and curiosity to better understand myself, the people around me, and more specifically, my family. I was curious about the differences in our behaviors and perspectives and more importantly our family dynamics. This led me to further study human behavior and eventually led me to pursue this path. In this journey, I discovered my true passion and purpose in supporting others in navigating their own journey of self-discovery and self-fulfillment.
Spending time with family, hiking, and camping.
Daily walks. Breathwork, taking time every day to slow down my mind and my body to just breathe.
The Whole Brained Child, I always learn something new.
The Ronald McDonald Foundation. It provides care, comfort, and support for families with sick or recovering children. Wonderful organization.
Enjoying a spa day or massage, spending time in nature, and connecting with loved ones.
