About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    My clients describe me as warm, calm, and patient. They often express feeling understood and free to show up honestly in our sessions together.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Therapy with me is collaborative. We meet overwhelming emotions with curiosity rather than judgement and help you make space for yourself to show up more authentically in your life. My approach is emotionally focused and trauma-informed.

  • Together, we will:

    Help you release the responsibility for others’ emotions causing people-pleasing and burn-out. We explore and challenge unhelpful beliefs, supporting you in setting boundaries, developing self-compassion, and acknowledging your own needs as valid.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Identify as “the golden child,” people pleasers, emotional caretakers, and highly sensitive persons. They are tired of being so attuned to the needs of others they neglect their own, and desire to feel more fulfilled individually and relationally.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I’m passionate about creating a safe space for people to feel seen and known when so often they feel they must hide all or parts of themselves.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I am currently offering in-person sessions at my office in Highland Park, Los Angeles, with options to switch over to virtual when needed.

  • More about me and my practice:

    My approach is culturally and identity-affirming and inclusive, and non-pathological. A core belief of my practice is to stay curious, opening the door for understanding and healing. I’m here to support you in embracing the truth that you are enough.
