GET TO KNOW ME

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in California, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State, and a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. 

 

I specialize in helping adults heal from trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, and depression. In life, we can't experience love or significant life changes without also experiencing a sense of loss, as well as other conflicting feelings. As a result, sometimes our emotions feel overwhelming and we can become stuck, unable to move forward in ways that feel more positive. I provide a supportive, person-centered approach to therapy and together we can begin the healing process and help you rediscover what brings meaning to your life.

 

I work with both individuals and couples, and have experience in counseling individuals dealing with self-esteem issues, stress, life transitions, and relationship issues. My approach to therapy is both eclectic and relational, and includes training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Informed Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Gottman Method, and Contemporary Gestalt training.
