I believe that we all deserve support, and shouldn't have to wait until we're in crisis to get it. My approach is integrative and informed by culturally responsive cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapy, psychodynamic approaches, attachment theory, narrative therapy, and sports and performance psychology. I am trauma-informed, client-centered, and solution-focused, and work with existing strengths to help you feel more resourced, grounded, confident, and capable.
I provide licensed psychological health services to residents of California, as well as those in jurisdictions that permit telehealth with out of state providers. I work with a wide array of mental health concerns, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, c/PTSD, adult ADHD, bipolar disorder, BPD and other personality disorders, grief, life transitions, self-esteem, burnout, substance abuse and other compulsive behavior problems, social and agoraphobia, and trauma recovery.
I work with diagnoses only if they provide clarity and benefit to you. For some, understanding mental health through the lens of diagnosis and treatment is empowering, dignifying, and fosters hope. For others, it might be triggering, otherizing, or disheartening. I'm collaborative, engaged, client-centered, and transparent in my approach to therapy.
While I'm not on any insurance panels, I do accept digital payment via FSA (Flexible Spending Account), HRA (Health Reimbursement Arrangement), or HSA (Health Savings Account). If your insurance covers out-of-network providers, I can also provide you with a Superbill that you can submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Sometimes life gets us stuck, and we need specialized guidance to help us strategize the way forward. Equipped with my knowledge of human behavior patterns and best practices for breaking through impasses, I can work with you to build increased wellness, confidence, and success.
Coaching provides overall wellness support as well as issue-specific support to those who are seeking solution-focused, time-limited sessions (offered in packages of 2 - 10).

Wondering what service is right for you? Let's set up time to talk about it. Initial consultations are 20 minutes long and free of charge, and give us the opportunity to feel out our "fit" and talk about what you're looking for and I'm the right person for you to work with.
