Knowing, accepting, and maintaining our connection to our true selves is the key to living a life of meaning, passion, freedom, creativity, and true joy. Nurturing and caring for ourselves gives us the strength to live authentically and truly connect with and love others.
I love helping my clients find their way home to themselves. I work with men and women, adults and children, individuals, families, and couples. In a supportive and non-judgmental environment, we will confront the struggles you’re facing in turning the life you have into the life you want. We will take stock of the thoughts, feelings, and challenges from your past that are keeping you stuck, and we will fight together to break old patterns so you can take the steps you need to move forward.
I have worked in a variety of clinical settings with clients of all ages, focusing on a range of challenges including finding meaningful work, overcoming addiction, parenting, living with major mental illness, deepening relationships and intimacy, gender identity, and more. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Cognitive Science with an emphasis in Neuroscience and a minor in Urban & Environmental Policy from Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. I earned a Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and practiced law for a number of years while earning my Master’s Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, California. I am currently registered as an inactive attorney with the State Bar of California and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (“MFTI 87133 ”) with the California Board of Behavioral Science. I am supervised under Cecilia Penailillo, LMFT.
