I am a compassionate and curious depth-trained and results-oriented psychotherapist. I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups. At this time, I am only providing online therapy.
My goal is to help you through the journey of Individuation--the realization of your optimal unfolding by coming into alignment with your authentic self. I facilitate you in gaining self-awareness and access to your own wisdom. I teach psychological tools to help you break through unconscious limiting beliefs and cultivate positive habits for continued personal growth and healing in and beyond therapy.
If you are dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, creative blocks, a difficult life transition, unhealthy behaviors that you can’t seem to change, existential dilemmas, relational and family conflicts, and challenges regarding your neurodiversity or sexuality, I will help you use them as opportunities for positive and sustainable transformation.
If you are a couple, I help both of you use your relationship as a container for greater intimacy that nurtures your mutual healing and development. Cultivating a great relationship is a matter of understanding the interplay of personal and relational dynamics while learning skills of communication, safety, repair, and play.
During each session, I employ depth or Jungian, somatic, psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, coaching, trauma, neuroplasticity, evidence-based, and spiritual psychology modalities—addressing the mind, body, soul/spirit connection, offering you integrative therapeutic support.
You may call or email me if you are interested in working together. I am happy to provide a complimentary 20 minute consultation for us to determine if we are a fit. My rate is $225 for individuals and $250 for families or couples per 50 minute session. I provide sliding scale on a limited basis, please inquire for available slots.
I received a master’s degree in Clinical Counseling with emphasis in Depth Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy from Pacifica Graduate Institute and a master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology with emphasis in Applied Coaching Modalities from the University of Santa Monica. I did my associate training at Coldwater Counseling Center, a non-profit agency specializing in Jungian Psychotherapy, and at a Military Hospital working with service members and their families, focusing on Trauma, Neurodivergence, and relational dynamics.
I am certified in Trauma Informed Care (TIC) from the Colorado Professional Development Center and The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), a non-invasive audio application of Dr. Steven Porges' Polyvagal Theory that calms anxiety and trauma-related challenges. I trained in Brainspotting (BSP), a brain-based modality that uses the visual field to access and heal unprocessed traumas in the subcortical brain. Other modalities I use for trauma work include: Somatic Experiencing, Inner Child Work, Psychosynthesis, Parts Work or Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Family Constellations or Field Therapy based on the work of Bert Hellinger (addressing intergenerational trauma).
I practice Relational Life Therapy (RLT) by Terry Real and the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy along with other couple's work techniques to provide a comprehensive approach to assessing and treating relationship difficulties and teaching skills to help couples deepen and thrive in their relationship.
Other methods I integrate in my practice include: Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, Non-linear Movement, Shadow Work, Active Imagination, Sand Play and Dream Work. I am also certified to administer the Focus Program from Integrated Listening Systems, using treated sound to facilitate neuroplastic brain changes to improve ADHD challenges.
I have been fortunate to receive supervision from mentors with deep experience and backgrounds in Jungian Analysis or Analytical Psychology, Child and Family Psychology, and Integrative Psychotherapy. I have specialized training and experience supporting clients with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), childbirth trauma (effects on mother and child), developmental or childhood trauma, ADHD (Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder), Autism in children as well as late diagnosis of Autism in adults, military personnel and family related issues, and those in need of career counseling. I am an LGBTQIA+- and Neurodiversity-affirming therapist.
My voracious appetite for learning about psychology, spirituality, philosophy, creativity, and self-help tools in my ongoing personal growth journey, as well as my experience with PTSD and the hundreds of patients I have been privileged to encounter allows me to keep growing in this field. I am a researcher and knowledge synthesizer by nature and my job is endlessly fulfilling because it gives me the opportunity to constantly learn and share what I know. I love to read and enjoy providing book resources to those who want to do their own work outside of therapy.
My former occupation as a creative and strategic marketing professional as well as my interest and experience in entrepreneurship and the arts enrich my ability to support high performers and individuals in creative fields, business, and leadership positions. I also love supporting other mental health providers.
As a mother, I am interested in maternal mental health, prenatal and perinatal psychology, early childhood development, parenting, and neurodiversity (Autism, ADHD, giftedness, 2E or twice exceptional education). As a wife, I love learning about the intricacies of love relationships, human sexuality and growth through partnership. As a woman, I love helping people transform and bring awareness to harmful internalized patriarchal attitudes that keep women (and men alike) unable to access empowerment in their authentic selves and be in supportive and truly enlivening relationships with others.
