Therapy Style

I use a client-centered, Psychodynamic approach that pulls from different theoretical orientations, including, but not limited to, psychoanalysis, behavior, and Cognitive therapy. Looking at patients’ early development, childhood, adolescence, and life experiences helps formulate my understanding of their current psychology and behavior. I believe therapy is the interplay of art and science and I strive to ensure my patients are safe, happy, and healthy in and outside of session.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

My interest in mental health stems from growing up with a sister that has many mental health diagnoses.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy reading, writing poetry, dancing, hiking, swimming, and eating good food with friends and family.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I express gratitude and work out or meditate, depending on the day.

What book have you read more than once?

The alchemist because it tells a story of true love.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

The Studio for Southern California History because they critically chronicle and share the region's social history in order to foster a sense of place.

How do you recharge?

I nap as much as possible.

Do you have any pets?

I have a grouchy cat that my neighbor gifted me after my father passed away.
