I am a Clinical Psychologist with a private practice in San Diego. I have a collaborative style and I find the healing power of laughter, joy, and gratitude to be invaluable in therapy. I specialize in addictive behaviors, LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy, and building resilience for those working through traumas and trying to understand how they can move forward to live a genuine and authentic life. Traumas can be big or small, old or new, have happened once or were perhaps ongoing. All of these variations can affect us in many different ways.
I am EMDR trained and combine this with talk therapy and learning how to set healthy boundaries so one can have healthier relationships and sustainable empathy and compassion for others. I believe we all innately have this ability within us and I am honored to be able to therapeutically help guide my clients towards that path.
