That sense of curiosity and rebellion inspired an early career in the performing arts and a second career as an entrepreneur, having Co-Founded a successful LA-based beauty brand. But despite those successes, I still yearned for a stronger identity and purpose. The process of self-interrogation led me to a Masters Degree program in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University, where I started to develop a deeper sense of self, alongside a heightened empathy for the world at large, and later receiving a certificate in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), and The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).
I believe in the healing power of a therapeutic relationship. In a safe and accepting space, our relationship becomes a catalyst for growth and transformation. Together, we foster a deep connection and trust that enhances the therapeutic process, allowing you to explore and heal with authenticity and vulnerability.
I see myself as a compassionate and curious companion on your journey, helping you create meaning from the events that have unfolded in your life. Together we'll develop a path forward that makes sense for you and is centered on your unique needs and preferences. Most often I use mindfulness, EMDR, parts work, and talk therapy.
Most of my clients experience anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, low self-esteem and/or some kind of trauma. My specialties include: postpartum depression, birth trauma, ADHD, trauma, problems with your family of origin, childhood trauma, attachment issues, codependency, couples & marriage counseling.
My goal as a therapist is to be your guide on the transformative journey back to yourself. Through our collaborative work, we'll explore your inner life, untangle limiting patterns and beliefs, and cultivate a mind-body connection. In this more present, embodied space, life's challenges become opportunities for growth and transformation. Together, we'll sow the seeds for a new vision of your life.
My approach is multidisciplinary, incorporating Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and psychodynamic principles. This provides a holistic framework for your self-discovery journey. I believe in a personalized and collaborative therapeutic experience where your lived experience holds significant importance. I am here to guide you on your path to healing.
In my work I discovered I felt most connected to the emotional and mental aspect of art—how does music, and other art forms, make us feel and heal? Psychotherapy allows me to blend creativity and an innate interest in the healing of others.
My approach to therapy is person-centered and strengths-based, meaning that I believe in empowering my clients to utilize their unique strengths and skills to overcome challenges and achieve their goals. I also believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, regardless of their past experiences. Using psychodynamic, relational, and dialectical behavioral approaches, I work with clients seeking to enrich their lives with a higher sense of satisfaction.
