Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 51692
Since 1992, I have worked in private practice, agencies, and hospital settings with a wide range of people who seek help in handling stress, anxiety, depression, trauma/abuse, psychosis, crises, grief, body image concerns, compulsive eating, transition, stage of life issues, and relationship concerns. One of my main specialties is recovery from trauma/abuse and she utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)–a very effective tool–as well as techniques from other trauma therapies. I have an integrative approach and uses tools such as mindfulness, emotion regulation and skill-building, cognitive-behavioral elements, focusing on strengths, and psycho-education. I am warm and approachable and my clients say that I make them feel safe with and accepted.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a BA in psychology from UC Berkeley and an MA in counseling psychology from John F. Kennedy University. I am passionate about helping people achieve well-being and access their full potential.
