My goal from our first interaction to our last is to give you a safe space to feel heard and validated. A space to laugh, cry, and feel all the feels in between. I promise to work myself out of a job, giving you all the tools to empower you to fire me when you do not need therapy anymore. But until that day, I promise to be on your team.

I like learning about others, and what makes them move and groove and go about the world in their own unique way.
I love the ocean, I will swim in it almost any day of the year. I am obsessed with dogs, and I love turning music on instead of tv or sitting outside with a good book.
I exercise daily, either going to my group weight training or walking my dog. It is important for me to get out there and do something active.
The Alchemist, it's that good.
I LOVED the non-profit I worked for serving the SPMI population in Santa Barbara called Sanctuary Centers. They taught me about the village it takes to support mental health and led me to being an MFT.
A book and the beach.
