More about me
Years in Practice: 17
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in California. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, History, and Psychology and my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology. I have been providing individual, family, and couples therapy for almost two decades. I have experience with a variety of age and ethnic groups. I utilize various theoretical orientations including Solution-Focused, Narrative, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have worked in elementary and high school settings, residential drug treatment, and mental health partial hospitalization programs. Additionally, I am well-versed in 12-Step addiction models. My therapeutic approach focuses on helping clients separate who they think they "should" be from who they actually are. I aim to identify clients’ needs and further develop their communication skills. We collaborate to cultivate an integrated acceptance of self, while promoting a rich environment for change to occur. I seek to find strategies for clients to cultivate more meaningful connections, which require vulnerability and intimacy. Great therapy is built on a relationship of warmth, empathy, and curiosity, where all parties learn from one another. I pay attention to the moment-to-moment experiences of the mind and body, and aspire to integrate them for overall well-being.
Our therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length, so please don’t be confused by the 30-minute time slots when you schedule. I do ask for a minimum 24-hour cancellation notice prior to any scheduled sessions. More than one late-notice or no-show, will result in a referral to another therapist on the BetterHelp platform.
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.
