Psychotherapy is a second career for me. While working in the entertainment industry, I decided to pursue my passion of becoming a therapist. I attended college and simultaneously sat on the Board of Directors of a non-profit that provides hygiene goods and affordable counseling to the underserved of the Inland Empire.  


Following the 2008 economic downturn, I exited the professional world and spent six years in graduate school where I obtained back-to-back master degrees. As part of my clinical training, I was privileged enough to serve as a chaplain intern in a hospital setting where my vision of working in the healing arts was solidified.  

I work with those who are facing life transitions, suffer with anxiety, depression, relational conflict and/or experienced traumas. While I enjoy working with anyone who has an immediate need; my specialization in trauma recovery continues to expand. This includes a unique understanding of the dynamics behind Narcissistic Abuse 

and what it takes for the targeted to recover from the resultant trauma bond. I assist individuals who have been drawn in or raised by narcissists untangle their emotional lives and identities from this toxic influence.  

My therapeutic orientation is grounded in Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Existential Theories. However, I am not a disciple of any one psychological model. I utilize techniques that are drawn from multiple modalities including Mindfulness and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Therapy tailoring treatment and exploring creative solutions to meet your need. As each individual is unique, I find no therapeutic concept is a one size fits all. My primary goal is to utilize my skills coupled with my intuition and our therapeutic relationship to help you gain insight and freedom.
