Does it seem like communication with your significant other is nonexistent? Are you getting into more arguments or carrying a lot of anger?

Growth through change and risk—ask me how?  

I am a warm, compassionate, and experienced San Diego Therapist who is solution-focused and my goal is to provide an environment of trust and mutual respect so that you can uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life

The Benefits of Therapy

Psychotherapy can be an effective tool in providing you with the necessary support and training to overcome the challenges you face. By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life. Many studies have shown throughout the years that psychotherapy is an effective form of treating and managing mental illnesses and other emotional disorders.

As an experienced marriage and family therapist, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and move toward a healthy, fulfilling life. My approach to therapy is solution focused and draws on a variety of approaches including Cognitive/Cognitive-Behavioral and Art Therapy. Based on your unique circumstances, I will work with you to create a treatment plan that is right for you.

With honesty and compassion, I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion, which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times in the future, as well as become a more productive and happier person.

I proudly serve clients in San Diego, California including Miramar, Clairemont Mesa, University City, Mission Bay, Linda Vista, Bay Park, Kearny Mesa, and more. I also offer counseling services online via VSee, as needed.
