I enjoy helping young adults learn more about who they are and what they want out of this life. Setting boundaries, developing more positive self-talk, problem-solving, improving communication skills, and being authentic are all important factors to feeling like your best self. I tend to have more of a conversational, laid-back style and believe a sense of humor and some foul language in sessions can be incredibly therapeutic! I strongly believe that the therapist-client relationship is the number one reason for success in a therapeutic relationship, so it is important to me that you feel like we are the right fit.

I am a big animal lover with one dog and three cats- at least one often makes an appearance during sessions. I also volunteer at a farm animal sanctuary. I have a 19-year-old daughter I am very close with, and we love to explore all that our new city of Los Angeles has to offer!
