Ultimately we all want to connect because we are hard wired for love and connection.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California (LMFT48345) and Hawaii (MFT267). I received my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University of Los Angeles.

I am trained in EMDR and am a Certified Facilitator of The Daring Way an evidence-based model developed by Brené Brown on Shame Resilience and learning to live Wholeheartedly.  Some of the modalities I utilize when working with clients are Attachment Theory, Solution-Focused, Positive Psychology and Mindfulness.

All great changes are preceded by chaos.”
~Deepak Chopra


I work from a belief that although we can’t change difficult experiences of the past, we can choose to look at these experiences as opportunities for individual growth. Working together we will explore and overcome any obstacles that have been placed in your way on your journey to finding fulfillment in life. I am here to help you uncover your true potential and to lead a life that is worth celebrating, enjoying and living wholeheartedly with joy and self-love.

I am also a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator.  I incorporate Brené Brown’s work with my individual clients and in groups. The connection to Shame, our ability to be Vulnerable and our Self-Worth is the key to many of the issues we struggle with on a daily basis.
