My Approach

As a depth-oriented psychotherapist, I blend traditional talk therapy with the creative process and invite a deepening into the unfolding story of your life. With the exploration of symbolism, imagery, and self expression, opportunities for healing can arise which open new pathways, both internally and externally. I incorporate a model of treatment that includes cognitive modalities, emotional regulation, stress management, coping skills, behavior modification, and ways to address the unconscious processes and how they express themselves.Through this work, a deep level of integration emerges which serves to unleash unlimited potential for optimum growth.

My Background

I received my Masters degree from Pacifica Graduate Institute with an emphasis in Depth Psychology. I have also received additional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Skills, Mindfulness Training, and Marriage and Family Therapy. While these theoretical models provide a substantial framework for my practice, my work is largely informed by the personal experience of profound grief. Journeying through these difficult waters allows me to uniquely empathize and assist my clients through life struggles and losses.
