Days, Nights, Weekends
I am an AAMFT Clinical Fellow, with expertise in working with couples and families. I see myself as an intuitive, creative, informed, and highly trained Clinical Psychologist that provides a safe, nonjudgmental, and transformative environment. Therapy with me fosters a deep sense of engagement and connection, a sense of feeling heard and understood, and clarity where there was previously ambiguity. I have a passion for the importance of relationships, authentic living, self-acceptance, and the complex experiences of those who hold multiple identities. I specialize in hard to talk about topics that are often stigmatized or concealed. This includes interpersonal trauma and experiences of minority stress. I practice LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy.
Expertise in: time-limited, evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT), the Unified Protocol for emotional disorders, and third wave CBT (i.e., Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness based interventions). I specialize in relationships, interpersonal trauma, and non-traditional relationships/lifestyles (i.e., open, poly, BDSM, kink).
I work well with curious individuals who are motivated to grow, share, be vulnerable, and play in therapy and in their lives. Creativity and curiosity in psychotherapy allows both of us to explore, question, imagine, and reflect on thoughts and experiences with depth and authenticity. Together we explore more flexible ways of thinking and relating to others.
I am also offering face-to-face sessions in West Hollywood, California.
