I believe that for true healing to take place, the entire self—mind, body, and spirit, must be supported. My style is empowering and warm, with an empathic and intuitive approach. Using a Psychodynamic approach, I journey with my clients, exploring whatever may be keeping them in pain or confusion, offering insight, support, and encouragement.

Tending to intergenerational trauma that may be present and acknowledging the impact it may be having on one’s behavior and overall concept of self is a component of my therapeutic approach. I cultivate a safe and nurturing environment, meeting clients wherever they are in their life’s journey, in a non-judgmental way.

I challenge clients to step into the unknown and be curious about themselves so they may shift to their highest potential. I understand that this kind of work is not always an easy task but is achievable with compassion and support.

Originally from Chicago, I attended Loyola Marymount University and completed my undergraduate degree with honors in Sociology. I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, having also graduated with honors. Having trained at The Maple Counseling Center, I developed skills in working with trauma, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, and domestic violence. I am also trained in EMDR trauma therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy). I provide therapeutic services to individuals and couples and am currently working towards licensure under the supervision and employment of Jennifer Walters, LMFT.
