You're not alone in this
Are you having more bad days than good? Having difficulties finding the energy that you use to have? Feeling "fatigued" and concerned about your next step? The physical and emotional toll can be exhausting. You deserve to feel better. I can teach you some tools to use and be there to help guide you on this journey. Together, we can work toward you feeling like yourself again.
With more than 7 years of extensive experience and training with helping clients through many of life's challenges including relationships, school problems, and adjusting, I know I can help you. I strive to bring kindness, genuineness, and humor into the room as I support and guide you. We will formulate a plan and goals together so you achieve your goals and alleviate your discomfort. I will teach you skills and help you gain greater self-awareness so you can feel in control again.
I realize that it's a process to find a therapist that's right for you or your adolescent. I offer a free consultation where we will discuss your needs, your schedule, and make sure that I'm a great fit for you. It takes courage to start this process and consistency to meet your goals. Stay strong.

Remote Therapy - California
Remote therapy is also known as distance therapy, video therapy, teletherapy, telehealth, online therapy, or telemedicine. Several hours in my private practice schedule are reserved for teletherapy sessions. These live video therapy sessions or phone sessions are offered to California residents. It provides convenience and accessibility when it's hard to come into my office. The telehealth sessions are through a secure HIPAA platform for your security and privacy. Before starting teletherapy, we will discuss if the platform is an appropriate fit for your therapeutic needs.
Remote therapy is perfect: during COVID-19, for those with transportation concerns, new parents, time saver, for those with busy schedules, for individuals who want extra privacy, etc.
For additional teletherapy information, here's a good place to start.
*Teletherapy is not the right choice for everyone. For specifics on what if right for you or your loved one, please consult a mental health professional for direct recommendations.
Adult and Adolescent Therapy
I offer individual and couples counseling psychotherapy sessions. Sessions are offered in office and via teletherapy (use of computer or phone). Initial consultation will be used to determine need and fit. Together, we will determine a treatment plan and collaborate on progress so you can receive the most out of your therapy experience. Complimentary consultations are offered so that we can ensure that I would be a good fit for you.
Therapeutic Services Include:
Collaborative treatment plan, short and long term goals, access to all of my 50+ pages of resources, and a visual progress tracker.
