I am a marriage and family therapist with over 17 years of clinical experience facilitating transformative life changes in my clients including children, teens, adults, couples, and families. My goal is to help my clients realize their authentic selves, walk in harmony with their true nature, and live stable, healthy lives full with the love of rich and rewarding relationships. I earned my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and postgraduate training in the impact of early childhood trauma on brain development. I utilize a holistic approach to therapy, offering my clients a safe, open space to allow them to explore the various parts of their lives lacking integration. I believe habitual patterns of thoughts and behaviors result in chronic anxiety, depression, anger, insomnia, poor self-image, chemical dependency, and a number of other unhealthy impulses. These patterns form our experiences, our temperaments, our relationships, our trauma, and are often unobserved. I believe that with mindful awareness and time, we can increase our tolerance level to stimuli and allow ourselves to become more compassionate. We can actively re-wire our brains. We can tap into the wisdom of our minds and bodies to identify “knots”, and creatively forge new and exciting paths towards liberation and lightness.
