Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 


We all feel alone sometimes. Disconnected. Some people feel alone all the time! But if you’re feeling that way and reading this, please know that I'm on your side and I'm here to help. Together we can find practical solutions and safe outlets that will help you to remember your worth, be confident in your values, and begin to see that you have everything you need inside yourself - even when it’s hard. 


“Safety is not the absence of threat, it is the presence of connection.” -- Gabor Maté 


I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT 109809) and I live and work in Pasadena. I’ve been practicing therapy since 2004. My approach is one you may not have heard about before: I use relational therapy to collaborate with you as an equal, not an expert. Together, we’ll create a plan that allows you to focus on living a meaningful life and maintaining relationships that allow you to grow and thrive. 


If you’ve experienced domestic violence, physical, mental, or emotional abuse, family turmoil, or trauma of any kind; or if you’re struggling to make connections and maintain meaningful relationships, therapy is a tool that can help you heal and grow. 


We’ll work together to discover what you need to move from surviving to thriving, and find the tools that work best for you along the way. It’s a team effort: you are the expert on your life, and I’ll be by your side to provide guidance and support along your journey. 


I can help if you’re experiencing or have experienced:

  • Domestic violence

  • Family turmoil

  • Emotional abuse

  • Physical abuse

  • Mental abuse

  • Sexual abuse 

  • CSEC

  • Trauma

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Toxic relationship patterns

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Low Self-Esteem


And I want to work with you if what you’re experiencing isn’t listed above but you have a commitment to growth, are looking for direction, or if you’re struggling with the relationships in your life -- despite not being able to pinpoint why? 


My offerings include individual and family therapy for tweens, teens and adults. If you’re interested in learning more, or if you have questions, please feel free to reach out!
