ABOUT ME

I hold the therapeutic relationship as sacred, a safe space for self-exploration and self-discovery. I feel passionate about this work, in being a witness and guide, as my clients sort through life's many challenges and major life decisions. Throughout this process I intend to create a nourishing and non-judgmental atmosphere of acceptance, laying the foundation for growth and healing. My style is gentle and allowing - whatever issues you are dealing with, I'm confident we can handle them together and move in a direction toward lasting change. You don't have to do it alone.

Education and Background:

 

In 2015 I graduated from California Institute of Integral Studies with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology.  I completed my undergrad in Sociology from UC Santa Barbara. 

My approach to healing is truly holistic, incorporating Cognitive Therapy, Somatic methods, and Mindfulness. In each session I utilize a variety of modalities to fit the needs and wishes of each client.

 

The decision to begin therapy can be life-changing and takes great courage.  If you feel drawn to work with me, please call my confidential voicemail number or send an email.
