About Me

I enjoy being able to help clients in their journey through life, whether it's working on a mental health issue, self-growth and exploration, parenting, communication problems within a relationship, needing someone to listen and process life's difficulties, or another area. As a counselor I get to be in a unique position where I am able to watch people grow as they make changes in their life. I feel honored to have people trust me to take part in this journey with them, and it's a position that I don't take lightly.

I have been married for 17 years and have 2 children. I earned my master's degree in counseling from CSU, Fullerton and my B.A. in psychology from UC, Santa Barbara. I am licensed in California as a marriage and family therapist (LMFT) as well as a professional clinical counselor (LPCC). I continue to stay up to date on new approaches in treating mental health issues and to receive specialized training at conferences and workshops. I am also a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) and have completed a multi-year 150-hour Specialized Certificate in Play Therapy program at the UC, San Diego Extension Program. Please visit the qualifications page for more details.

Because I feel it's important to use a type of therapy that works best with each individual and some people respond better to one type than to another, I use a variety of approaches. If you're interested, you can read about them by clicking here.

Thank you for taking the time to determine if I will be a good fit in helping you with your journey. It's important that you feel comfortable with your therapist, so that you can make the progress that you are looking for.

Please note that I am currently only accepting new clients via telehealth.
