Life throws us with uncertainty. Between changing careers, birthing a child, deciding to end a relationship, mourning the loss of loved one, or moving cities; change is inevitable. I've been through many of life's ebbs and flows and thus it is why I help turn transitional challenges into transformational opportunities

EMDR is an eight phase psychotherapy that activates the brains natural healing processes similar to the body's natural ability to recover from physical trauma. When you cut your finger, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.

I began practicing psychotherapy in 2011, after finishing my Masters in Clinical Psychotherapy at Antioch University, Los Angeles. During my training, I had the opportunity to work with many diverse cultures, age groups, and socio-economic levels whom endured trauma, relationship issues, and depression/anxiety.
I learned through my experience how to empathically and compassionately listen to their challenging stories. Through careful attunement and understanding, I witnessed symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trauma transform to a place of peace and ease utilizing their inner strengths, wisdom, and creativity.
I specialize in working with individuals, couples, groups, and youth many of whom consider themselves part of the LGBTQ community struggling with a variety of tribulations including life transitions, strong emotions, grief and loss, and spiritual exploration.
My approach is collaborative, integrative, and holistic. We explore bio-psycho-social-spiritual values, beliefs, and thoughts developed from past conditioning that influences present day thoughts, feelings, relationships and self-esteem. We discover what is working and what is more inline with your true self.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in the government and private sectors of information technology. This experience has provided the know-how for optimal performance, as a leader, C-level executive, and team player. I optimize organizational performance, critical thinking, innovation, and creativity.
