I am a licensed Psychotherapist (MFC 52922) in the state of California. I work with individuals who are 18 and over in a private practice setting. I provide therapy over video for those who are unable to meet me at my office, on a case-by-case basis.
As a clinician, I am compassionate, non-judgmental, and collaborative. Together, we will identify your goals and how best to achieve them. I tend to be fairly active in sessions, providing feedback and suggestions.
My theoretical orientation is Humanistic/Eclectic. I use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions when appropriate; typically for anxiety, depression, and addictions. I am tool-oriented, and I can provide a variety of suggestions on workbooks, audio recordings, homework exercises, meditation techniques, and community resources. I also offer 12 step support which means I help people navigate 12 step programs if they are interested in joining them. Finally, I have been trained in EMDR to use for re-processing traumatic memories.
