Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 115872
I believe in working with the whole person- mind, body and spirit. This means I support my clients to develop a deep trust in their own intuition, a positive relationship with their bodies, increased authentic self-acceptance, and feelings of connection and confidence. I provide a supportive and safe experience, giving my clients space to navigate through their lives in their own way while assisting them with recognizing and building on their strengths as well as their internal resources. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in California. In addition to a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology, I have a Graduate Certificate in Exercise and Sport Performance. I provide psychotherapy services to individuals who suffer from depression, stress and anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, addiction, self-esteem, personal growth, and life changes. I have over 8 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in clinical and community settings. These settings include facilitating life skills camps for incarcerated and at-risk youth; counseling services to children, adolescents, and families in school, home, group home, and foster care settings; co-facilitating a women’s therapy group; individual psychotherapy to adults, and working with athletes and individuals with injuries. Additionally, I have experience supporting and coaching athletes of various abilities, age groups and persuasions. I understand from my own experience as a collegiate and semi-professional athlete how our identities become linked to our roles as players and team members as well as how our life-traumas, athletic training, and injuries impact our experience of ourselves and our bodies. Building on personal experience, I have a particular calling to work with individuals and athletes suffering from physical injuries supporting their rebuilding and resilience from the inside out.
