Change your thoughts and you can change your world.

Despite the trauma you may have

experienced and the anxiety

you may be feeling,

you have inner resources

to help you manage stress.

About Me

Hi. I’m a licensed therapist in Monterey, California, and I’m originally from the Northeast. I completed my BA in Boston and my MA in San Jose.

Before becoming a therapist, I was a teacher in California, Colombia, and Spain. The more I’ve traveled and met people from diverse backgrounds, I’ve come to understand that we are all more alike than different and our environment helps shape who we are and how we see the world.

I have experience working with children, teens, college students, adults, and families who are anxious, depressed, and stressed, and those who have experienced trauma.

Let’s work together. I love helping people share and make sense of their stories.

I provide trauma-focused, attachment-based psychotherapy and utilize an eclectic blend of modalities. 

I offer in-office and online therapy sessions, as well as parent coaching.

Therapy Modalities

Every person is unique and treatment is individualized to meet your needs and help you achieve your goals. Read below to learn more about my approach to therapy.

Are you living your best life?

Mindfulness for anxiety and depression

Become more self-aware, learn to pause, and begin to respond to situations versus reacting.

EMDR for trauma

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

Explore Your Inner Resources

Despite the trauma you may have experienced and the anxiety you may be feeling, you have inner resources to help you manage stress.

I look forward to working with you.

If you are in a crisis or are experiencing a psychiatric emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
