What path led you here today? You may have trouble connecting with yourself or with others, or you may feel flat and wonder, “is this all there is?” Maybe something you thought was in the past is coming back up now and you feel like you’re treading water, just trying to survive the day.
It’s exhausting and draining to be in emotional pain, and you don’t have to live your life like that. We all have stories of pain and suffering, but we don’t have to live in that story.
Here’s the secret – we are more than what has happened to us and our story doesn’t get to define us. We are resilient and resourceful, and I’m consistently humbled by our ability to heal and find meaning.
I work with teens, adults, and couples. I believe that all of the choices we make and the things we do make perfect sense when you consider your life and what has happened to you. I’ll help you make sense of what you’re experiencing and help you get control of your life back. You CAN have a fulfilling life, with meaningful relationships.
I have a Master’s in Counseling Psychology and am a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Associate. I trained at the YWCA Silicon Valley’s Healing Center, with a focus on sexual violence and childhood trauma. I have experience working with PTSD and Complex PTSD, as well as with the day-to-day effects that loss and trauma can have on your life. I use a variety of techniques—including visualization, art, and body-based work—but at the core, I work to empower you and help you find your way back to yourself.
