“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Sharon Salzberg

I am a compassion-focused, affirming therapist who works primarily with teens (ages 13-19), adults, and couples. I work from a combined humanistic, person-centered, and emotion-focused lens to collaborate with you to create a treatment plan that is best specialized to your needs. I make use of a variety of evidence-based interventions and theories. I will be completing my Masters in Marriage and Family therapy at Chapman University this December 2021. I received my bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in Chicanx studies from UCLA. I have experience working with people who struggle with anxiety, complex trauma, depression, and relational issues.

I am here to listen to you, learn about your world, and what it means to be you. Together, we can explore your history, establish coping strategies for difficult emotions, and find your path to a more enriching life. It takes courage to realize you need help, so I am committed to working with you at your pace. I am your ally. I look forward to meeting you and joining you on your journey!
