My Therapy Style

My top priority as your therapist is to create a safe space for you to heal. I provide warm, gentle, and open communication using reflective listening, empathy, and validation. I consider myself integrative, in that I intuitively pull from different modalities to support my clients individually. The modalities I tend to use most are relational/person-centered process-oriented therapy, Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). I train to be trauma-informed and culturally responsive.

Education & Training

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for the therapists who helped me along the way. I feel it's my calling to support others on their path to healing, and am very grateful I get to witness other humans' growth.

What are your interests outside of work?

Spending time with my dog and loved ones, the world of animals and nature, open water swimming, freediving, art, design, working with my hands, taking care of my mind/body/soul, and exploring all life has to offer!

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Cuddle with my dog :)

What book have you read more than once?

If the Buddha Dated. Not only does it include solid relationship practices, but beautiful life lessons as well. The tone it's written in is so inviting and open.

How do you recharge?

Water, alone time, and sensory-focused skin and body care.

Do you have any pets?

Scarlet, a 60-ish lb German shepherd/Dudley Lab/Blue Heeler mix from a German shepherd rescue in Los Angeles. The first day I brought her home, she collapsed on the bed I had set up for her. I felt many warm fuzzies when I saw how at ease she appeared (she was on her back with her feet in the air) and felt very honored to be her mom.
