THERAPY

I provide therapy for individuals and adolescents who seek a deeper understanding of themselves, their relationships, and overarching context in order to create a healing narrative that allows for change and growth.

About

ABOUT ME

I am inspired by the uniquely creative way that each human learns to survive. I am a deeply empathic, highly-sensitive, and warm person who is passionate about nurturing others on their own inherently creative journey of healing.

 

Prior to working in mental health, I worked with all types of creatives within the entertainment industry for over 14 years. My predominant struggle was with identifying and expressing my own voice, instead choosing to give my energy solely to my work and neglecting my true self. I reached a point where I needed to learn self-compassion, how to express my needs clearly to myself and others, and how to set appropriate boundaries for my well-being. Because of this, I am drawn to uplifting and empowering the voices of others. One at a time, we can work toward a more cohesive, restorative, and emotionally intelligent world.

I am a registered associate marriage and family therapist currently practicing in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner and work primarily through a trauma-informed and family systems lens. I received my master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and trained at the Antioch University Counseling Center, a non-profit community mental health clinic, under the supervision of Shereen Hariri. I previously attended the College of Motion Picture Arts at Florida State University. My pronouns are she/her/hers.

“How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.

So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen; if a restiveness, like light and cloudshadows, passes over your hands and over all you do. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall. Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any miseries, or any depressions? For after all, you do not know what work these conditions are doing inside you.”
