I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT-10386) and I specialize in working with individuals, teens/young adults, and families. My approach to therapy is collaborative and focused on helping all clients feel safe and comfortable in sessions so that change is more likely to occur. I am passionate about helping others heal so that they can feel fulfilled and aligned in life. I love helping clients feel unstuck and helping them get back in touch with their authentic selves so that they can know their worth. I believe that we are all capable of healing and that we have the ability to heal ourselves with the right resources and supports. I used intuitive approaches when working with clients and our work is tailored to fit your needs.
I have advanced training in Attachment Theory which allows me to understand how clients’ attachment histories have led to their insecurities, feeling stuck, low self-esteem, trauma responses, and negative narratives. This model can also be used with families and will increase connection, closeness, and attachments among family members. This model allows individuals and families to heal past hurts and get unstuck from repetitive negative patterns.
I have advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), which is an empirically validated model for trauma therapy, and Brainspotting (BSP) Therapy. These models focus on resolving ongoing trauma symptoms by helping the brain and body process information that is uncomfortable or disturbing so that the information is less painful. Following a successful EMDR or BSP session, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings when the event is brought to mind. You still remember what happened, but it is less upsetting.
