More about me

Licensing: MS, LMFT
Years in Practice: 5
State: CA

Thank you for your interest. I have been practicing within the mental health field for 7+ years now. I believe creating a contained and safe space to talk only about your needs is incredibly powerful and healing. We all strive to balance so much and it has become increasingly easy to put ourselves last. I welcome you. My style is down to earth, genuine and authentic. I don’t have any tricks up my sleeve. I believe that change and hope occur when people feel safe, comfortable and connected. I strive to become an ally on your journey and an aid when a few extra coping tools and skills can help you along your way.

You can expect open and humble feedback as well as kind, respectful and encouraging care. It is a core belief of mine that we are all trying our best with what we have. Although life reveals some patterns, every story is unique and I wrap treatment around each person and their specific needs.

I have served as a therapist in multiple settings, most recently with young adults focusing on trauma, depression, suicidality and anxiety.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
