I help adults living with painful and stressful past experiences, move to a happier place so they can have thriving lives and relationships.

 

At the time you decide to reach out for counseling, you may be feeling overwhelmed and worried about opening up to someone you don’t know about what is troubling you.

 

I will create a welcoming space in therapy where I can get to know you and we can collaborate so that you can get to a better place.  You deserve support and understanding—I would be honored to help you.

 

I have worked with hundreds of adults and families while receiving top of the line training at leading hospitals including UC Davis and Kaiser Permanente. 

 

I find it is important to balance the “science of therapy” (I am constantly seeking out trainings and research to refine my skills) and the “art of therapy” (you are unique and building a strong relationship with you is my primary goal) so that our work together will be most effective. 

 

You will find that I am able to offer research-based techniques while also using a warmth, kindness and sense of humor when it’s appropriate. 

 

You are ready to feel better—I want to help you get there!

 

It is very important to me that you get the best support you can so that your life and relationships can improve.  We can feel alone in this world when things aren’t going right—let me help you feel less alone!

 

On a more personal note:

 

I moved to the United States in my teens and have since been happily married for decades and have raised 4 children.  I know both the difficulties and joys of keeping our relationships strong and creating a happy home.  My proudest life moments include becoming a US Citizen, receiving my Master’s degree, seeing the progress in the lives of my clients, and above all else my marriage and raising my children.  When I’m not working or spending time with loved ones, you might find me listening to music or true crime podcasts, connecting with nature, or watching funny videos.
