I am a lifelong learner and feel that I am always in the process of growth and discovery. Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a birth doula for 15 years supporting couples through childbirth and the postpartum adjustment. As a doula, I trained under Pam England to support healing from birth trauma. Working with these clients helped me realize my passion for emotional healing and started me on my journey to becoming a therapist. This is my life's calling.
I view myself as a guide to support your healing journey. While I incorporate a variety of modalities and techniques into my work, at the core I am depth oriented and seek to increase conscious awareness of the inner life, no matter what problems bring you into therapy.
I earned my Master of Science Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mount Saint Mary’s University and am currently an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#134774) and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (#12190). I trained in psychodynamic therapy with the Maple Counseling Center, where I did my student internship. My EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy training is through The Institute for Creative Mindfulness. I am Emotion Focused Therapy trained and practice EFT couples therapy. I am currently working under the supervision of Nathaniel Flatt, LMFT (Lic#115126) and I see clients in person in Los Angeles, near The Grove, and in Pasadena at Village Birth.
I am inclusive, affirming, and committed to cultural humility.
