About

**I offer a Free 30-minute Consultation; click here to schedule an appointment**

I am passionate about working with individuals and couples on their journey to reclaiming their authentic selves. I am known and appreciated for leaning in with loving-kindness and delivering straightforward feedback.  I use a Psychodynamic approach that emphasizes Mindfulness, Attachment Theory, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy; I also bring in culturally relevant practices that are familiar and comforting. 

My hope is for clients to learn a new way of expressing what is true for them in therapy.  The power of vulnerability and authenticity is usually revealed fairly quickly once safety and trust are established.

For couples, I advocate developing personal boundaries that align with one’s vision of their highest self; while also honoring their partner's boundaries. This can seem challenging when what feels at stake is your needs and overall well-being. However, I believe that, within the healing process, a new way of intimacy can be achieved by staying connected and supportive while expressing all points of truth. With enough practice in leading with both vulnerability and empathy, strengthening the three points to the couple's bond- Tú, Yo, y Nosotros- can be achieved.

For transformation to occur, I encourage all my clients to be curious and kind with their pain and to allow their emotions to be felt, seen and heard. The work done in therapy can be done in the darkest hours of life and be met with new hope and exciting beginnings; it is possible! 

I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and a Certified Multiple Addictions Therapist- Gaming Addiction (CMAT), and my specialty is working with individuals, couples, and therapeutic groups who are seeking help recovering from Attachment Trauma, Low Self-Esteem & Toxic Shame, Gaming Addiction, Sex and Love Addiction, and [unhealthy] Codependent Relationships. I join with my clients in times of darkness and help them shine their light onto themselves and others to heal their pain and increase their humanity.

I am committed to providing quality, affordable psychotherapy for EVERYONE and am in association with Axis Mundi Center for Mental Health to accomplish my mission. **Special discount rate offered to California State licensed psychotherapists, psychologists, or counselors/social workers seeking therapy.**
