Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, or general dissatisfaction in your relationships or career, your symptoms have a message to deliver. They may be a call to heal old wounds, or a sign that old ways of being are no longer working. A harsh inner critic, people pleasing, and avoiding intimacy are examples of strategies we develop early in life to protect ourselves, but later block us from the connection we crave. I will work with you to uncover your limiting beliefs and patterns, investigate their roots, and tend to the complex feelings that lie underneath so you can live with more ease, confidence
Before psychotherapy, my passion for people and their stories inspired me for more than fifteen years as I traveled the world working as a correspondent and anchor for leading national and international news networks.
I earned my MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and trained at the Southern California Counseling Center. My approach is rooted in psychodynamic theory and the latest neuroscience and understanding of trauma. I integrate EMDR therapy and study Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies.

The therapeutic relationship can be powerful and transformative in times of both difficulty and ease. In my role as therapist, I seek to learn about your life experiences, values and beliefs. From there we form an alliance in which we look at your life through a lens of compassion and non-judgment. We focus on what empowers you while working to discover what’s holding you back. My style is authentic, warm, and conversational.
I’ve always been interested in people’s stories and the resilience of the human spirit. After years of working in unscripted television, I chose to follow my heart and redirect my energy toward becoming a therapist. I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University and received training at Southern California Counseling Center (SCCC). My practice employs a collaborative approach and trauma-informed modalities such as EMDR.
