In college, sitting in the famous "therapist" chair was not a place I thought I would find myself professionally; instead its a place that I feel found me. Its a place that I feel honored and privileged to sit at, and is one that I proudly call home.
I believe therapy is a place to "lean in," rediscover vulnerability and have difficult yet honest conversations with the intent of creating the meaningful life you want to have. The process may not always be easy but working with me comes with compassion, patience, and time to feel seen.
My therapeutic approach stems from humanistic and existential psychotherapy foundations, meaning- I believe my place is to walk alongside you as you explore your life, meeting you where you are. I have advanced training in EFT (emotion focused therapy) which I utilize when working with couples and individuals to help revitalize quality connection with self and others.
For education, I hold a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University in San Diego and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from San Diego State University.
I have great appreciation for this work and my hope is to provide that safe and comforting place to work through life's challenges.
When I'm not sitting in my chair, you might find me behind a home project with my husband, chasing after two little humans or maybe even spending a bit of time in nature because like you, Im human too.
