Dwell in the possibility of what your life can be...It is my belief that you can create anything you want for yourself or your life. This may seem overwhelming, scary & exciting all at the same time, but it is possible! I provide a safe space where we can explore the patterns in your life & the situations that stop you. We all get stuck sometimes, usually by a combination of ourselves & our circumstances. In order to see more clearly we need help to step back & put our life into perspective.
Therapy is a process & I see YOU as the expert of your life. I will pull out your individual strengths to provide the most effective treatment. I work with techniques that incorporate Mindfulness psychotherapy, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Somatic Experiencing. To learn more about what this means, please visit my website!
I have extensive experience working with adults & adolescents. I worked as a therapist and clinical supervisor for the County of Los Angeles, Department of Mental Health for over 9 years. I have come across an enormous diversity of people living with everything from severe chronic mental illness to those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one.
My style is to support you getting into action in your life. I help you work toward goals, clarify options where you feel stuck and teach you how to identify the wealth of information the body reveals. I enjoy creating growth opportunities by helping you learn more about who you are, what stops you, & how to break unhelpful patterns using a mind-body approach. I do also incorporate SE Touch when it can further treatment.
Some side effects of this work can be: a more powerful & passionate life, less reactivity in the world, greater sense of ease & peacefulness, larger capacity for acceptance & compassion.
