I strive to meet each individual with empathy, humor, and direct communication that addresses the presenting issue head on. Working collaboratively with you I prioritize taking a supportive role while also working towards a clear goal.
I began my therapeutic career working in a private practice setting and quickly realized I saw great value in being able to provide a safe space for individuals and families to feel heard and supported without judgment. I furthered my therapeutic training in a residential setting working with teens and families and later transitioned to Kaiser Permanente’s Addiction Medicine Department where I could gain more specialized knowledge working with individuals suffering with substance use disorders.
I utilize my diverse experience working with individuals, couples, and families in a host of settings to support you with your unique circumstance and needs. I draw from behavioral change models, structural family therapy, and exploration of family of origin to help you develop agency in your life and work towards greater life satisfaction.
