Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 2001 I received my initial therapeutic training in Multicultural Counseling at SDSU; where I was trained in Experiential and Person Centered Therapy, completing my graduate degree in Counseling Psychology in 2004. I orient toward making room for empathy and unconditional positive regard in the client/therapist relationship. I also believe in supportively challenging client “stuck points” that may be getting in the way of lasting change.

My career has been split primarily into two spheres. I worked with those with persistent mental illness: Depression, Anxiety, Psychosis and Trauma (specifically sexual trauma) in my early career and again most recently. I spent 8-years of my career as a civilian therapist for the Navy. This has allowed me to support a variety of individuals and families who may be struggling with divorce, change of life, deployment, marriage difficulties, infidelity, and PTSD. I have eclectic training in couples communication, interventions with teens, suicide/safety assessment, EFT, DBT and CBT.

My therapeutic style is collaborative. I believe that my role is to help clients develop increased wellness and change by offering my training and skills as a guide. I avoid taking an “expert” stance; flexibility is important and sometimes “one size does not fit all.”

I’m passionate about therapy and appreciate that the process toward change may be challenging and sometimes uncomfortable. This is why I believe strongly in creating safety and support through empathy, humor and genuineness.
