Associate Marriage and Family Therapist -
Seeking therapy is a brave step. Whether you are presently in crisis or simply feeling a bit “stuck” in life, I honor the effort and courage that it took you to get here. Even a cursory, online search for a therapist indicates a commitment to your mental health. It also suggests that—regardless of how you might feel in this moment—some small (or large) part of you believes in the possibility of a more peaceful, fulfilling life.
As a therapist, I am here to not only affirm and amplify that belief, but more importantly, to help you discover and define its reality for yourself.I take a modern, client-centered, and collaborative approach to therapy. In my practice, I strive to co-create a safe, judgment-free environment that is conducive to moving through emotional blocks, overcoming past traumas, and letting go of patterns that no longer serve you. The resources we need to heal and to connect already lie within all of us—sometimes we just need a little help in identifying, accessing, and using them.
I work with both individuals and couples, and I am trained in EMDR and trauma-focused CBT. I have experience working with clients of all ages, backgrounds, and genders, and I am especially passionate about working with womxn who are looking to explore issues around sexuality.
I am sex-positive, kink-aware, LGBTQ-affirmative, and welcoming to all non-traditional relationships and lifestyles—I consider it an honor to serve my community in this capacity. I am currently accepting new clients in a beautiful, private-practice setting in La Crescenta, so if you feel moved to reach out, please do! I look forward to connecting with you.
