I began my studies at the University of California, Irvine with a BA in Psychology and Social Behavior, followed by a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute. My experience involves working in community mental health at the Southern California Counseling Center, A New Journey Eating Disorder Clinic, and most recently private practice, under the supervision of Jonathan Flier, LMFT.
My specialties are working with adolescents, young adults, individuals and couples, with an emphasis on disordered eating, anxiety, self-image, identity, relational issues, depression, stress management, life changes and general feelings of not fitting in.
I believe that your relationship with yourself, your relationships with others, are increasingly complex and confusing nowadays. Anxiety and identity issues can present as roadblocks to being the best versions of ourselves. Through therapeutic interventions and healing conversation, it is possible to transform yourself and enrich the way you interact in the world.
I work from an empathically driven, strength based, empowerment and narrative model, to help facilitate positive shifts in a client's life. Through our collaborative work, we will create a safe, non-judgmental environment to explore your experiences and emotions and move towards healing and change.
