It’s time WE pave a new way!

It takes courage and commitment to heal. I applaud you for embarking on a new or Renewed journey!

This is indeed a Big Step and I’m honored that you’re considering me for your therapeutic needs.

I hold myself to be an advocate for my clients, therefore we can no longer rely on and expect justice from the very systems created to ensure our oppression.

As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I look at the obstacles of each individual as part of the greater context of relationships with intimate partners, family, colleagues, community, culture, and environment. I work with individuals, couples, children, adolescents, and adults of all ages. I assist in healing a wide variety of themes including family dynamics, relationships, anxiety, stress, mood disorders, substance abuse, self-harming behaviors, sexuality and gender, grief and loss, managing professional and creative concerns, and personal empowerment.

Personal leaping from rock to rock. A leap of faith.

From a theoretical standpoint, I am rather diversified; being particularly influenced by Body Awareness methods, Somatic Psychotherapies, Brain-Gut (Microbiota) interconnections, Neuro-Psychology, Attachment, Cognitive-Behavioral, Developmental Psychology, and Humanistic-Existential theories.
