About Me

Summary

As a holistic counselor I specialize in helping clients shape genuine, functional lives while managing symptoms of personal and professional life stress, chronic anxiety and intense mood swings.

About Me

I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (License #99574). I hold degrees in Counseling Psychology, Holistic Health and Gender and Communication. I am also certified to provide clinical hypnotherapy, domestic violence education, advocacy and counseling, yoga and meditation therapy, conflict mediation and life coaching. My life experience includes years of committed partnership, motherhood, professional performance artistry and practical study of human belief systems and cultures. With support and extensive self-exploration of the healing process I have walked my own successful path of recovery from past trauma.

As a holistic counselor, my therapeutic guidance draws upon all aspects of who I understand myself to be, what I believe and how I perceive within and outside of myself. I look forward to collaborating with you on creating the awesome life you desire.

Practice Philosophy

My Approach to Therapy

My therapy style is relational, direct, integrative and practical. I utilize a vast range of techniques including mindfulness, narrative, cognitive-behavioral, somatic experience and family systems interventions. I respect your whole self- mind, body and spirit- as an authority on your own experience and architect of your own empowered healing. My skilled experience will guide you in crafting the inner skills and external lifestyle changes to nurture the needs of your present self, balanced with your holistic goals for the future.
