I offer in person and online therapy sessions, for individuals, couples and support groups. Postpartum Depression, Anxiety, Adjustment Disorders, couples and individual counseling and preparation for parenthood. My approach to therapy draws from 11 years of experience working in mental health programs with individuals, couples, and groups. I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Individuals and Couples and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Both EFT and CBT are highly effective models, and afford the client a meaningful and empowering journey to self discovery.
I feel strongly that people undergoing times of stress can thrive and flourish with the right support. In our work together, we will explore your emotional needs to unearth inner strength and insight. I believe that, any time we directly confront life’s challenges, it opens the door for more fulfilling experiences and lays the groundwork for facing future obstacles. I value my clients’ own unique strengths and perspectives, and enjoy helping people recognize their own insight. I’d love to offer you my support and a safe space to fully explore your new role, as well as help you to find your truest self as an individual, partner, or parent. I have worked as a therapist for adults and couples in the San Diego area since 2011. I have trained extensively in mental health from an academic and professional standpoint, with special attention to depression, anxiety, and couples counseling. As a partner and mother, I also share a personal understanding of the challenges that come with pregnancy, birth, and motherhood while maintaining a romantic relationship. I’ve experienced firsthand our culture’s tendency toward isolation for new mothers, where it could be offering great support. Not only expectant parents, but all kinds of people in a period of emotional or psychological distress find they aren’t met with the support to help them cope. This is why I create an environment of healing for individuals and couples during significant transition. I concentrate my practice on helping others foster the skills to maximize life experiences and reduce the intrusion of concerns and stresses that arise in times of change. I look forward to hearing from you!
