Welcome

Hello! Welcome and congratulations on exploring your options for self-care.

My practice is based in Santa Monica and I specialize in supporting children, adolescents, young women, and women transitioning into motherhood. I have provided clinical therapy and supportive services for children, adolescents, and parents for over 10 years. I am passionate about empowering individuals and families from all walks of life to cope, grow, and tap into their inner resiliency. Therapy is a collaborative experience and relationship. It is important to find someone with whom you feel comfortable. My approach can be described as warm, authentic, client-focused, direct, creative, culturally cognizant, holistic, strengths-based and mindful. I firmly believe in the healing power of developing healthy and secure interpersonal attachments, which informs all aspects of my work. Holding a safe, nurturing, contained space is the foundation of my practice. In addition to my work as an individual therapist, I am an experienced group facilitator for supportive and psychoeducational youth and women’s groups. I enjoy incorporating dynamic and creative tools like movement, art, and mindfulness as appropriate. My services are highly individualized based on client needs. I feel honored to be able to support clients in their journeys.
