Welcome! Please read my Disclaimer

Home: Welcome


I am a San Diego based Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Emotional Freedom Techniques/Tapping Practitioner, Registered Yoga Instructor and Reiki Level 1 & 2 Practitioner. I am passionate about empowering others to find their inner peace and self-worth. I offer in-person sessions in Carlsbad Village and Telehealth sessions to residents of California. I currently work with pre-teens, teens, and adults. 

In my psychotherapy practice, my goal is to support you through symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief and loss, codependency, and work with you to process past trauma. I describe my therapeutic style as warm, grounding, and compassionate. I practice a holistic, body-centered approach to therapy that incorporates both traditional and non-traditional methods such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques/ Tapping, yoga, reiki, and meditation. Mind-body methods have been shown to reduce stress and trauma while increasing calm and groundedness. I have observed that increasing calm with patients during therapy can enhance the therapeutic outcome. My focus is on healing and building resilience with the intention to help you feel more confident about your future. 

I also offer private yoga instruction, reiki, and yoga/wellness workshops. Please be advised that these services are separate from and not part of my psychotherapy practice. 

I can't wait to work with you in partnership either as a client in my psychotherapy practice or as a private yoga client or a participant in one of my workshops!

"True power is living the realization that you are your own healer, hero, and leader."

- Yung Pueblo 

Many of the challenges we face as adults stem from learned behaviors and limiting beliefs we pick up on in childhood. I believe that loving yourself first is the cornerstone in building healthy and happy communities that thrive. I am a strong advocate for those in the LGBTQ+ community and tremendously believe in affirming care. I believe that we can revolutionize the traditional approaches to therapy by looking at the systems an individual is a part of and valuing an individual's culture and background. Let me support you in using your voice by providing an empathetic, non-judgmental, and reflective listening ear.
