My own path of healing and transformation has greatly influenced who I am as a psychotherapist. My father died when I was thirteen years old, and the experience profoundly changed my life. I also was physically and emotionally debilitated for over two years as a young adult from a severe chronic pain diagnosis. Through body-mind-spirit interventions, I am fully and completely healed. 

My therapeutic style is influenced by my extensive training and practice in these modalities:

  • Formative Psychology®
  • Yoga and Ayurveda
  • Non-Violent Communication
  • Biofeedback
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
  • Judeo-Christian and Eastern Spirituality
  • Intuitive Studies

In addition to my private practice, I have been a hospice counselor to bereaved families for over 8 years and a clinical supervisor to hospice therapists-in-training for the past 6 years.

I have extensive experience working with teens, preteens, and young adults. I also have also supported dozens of elders in their aging process.

I have been licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC 47109) since 2009. I received my MS in Psychology from Dominican University, and my BA in Psychology from University of Colorado, Boulder in 2000.

I am fluent in Spanish, and I have lived and travelled extensively in Latin America and Asia. See my LinkedIn profile for more details.
