What to Expect in Therapy

I believe the therapist client relationship is imperative for the success of treatment so I strive to foster connection in every session by creating a safe environment where trust and transparency are evident.  My ever growing area of expertise is supporting those healing from sexual violence. I incorporate somatic practices (ie: mindfulness and body centered awareness) into sessions, to help improve the integration of body, mind and spirit. I work with folks holistically by addressing how the stress and/or trauma are surfacing in the brain and body while also understanding how these symptoms are affecting their relationships.


I primarily work with transitional age youth and adults. I practice sustaining a trauma-informed lens which includes acknowledging and having an ever growing understanding of how racism, patriarchy, and capitalism impact one’s mental health. I truly believe my role as a therapist is to help the client safely look inward to unveil and develop tools they need to heal.

Rate: $150 for a 50 minute individual therapy session

I am open to sliding scale as my caseload allows.

I do not currently accept insurance, but I can provide a superbill. 

I work with clients remotely and can provide therapy to anybody who resides in California.

About Me

I have worked as an advocate in the field of power-based personal violence (also called interpersonal violence) since 2010. This work has led me to want to support those healing from these types of stressors/traumas so in 2019 I completed the Master of Social Work (MSW) program from the University of Southern California. Currently I am earning supervised hours towards licensure under Dr. Kristen Zaleski, LCSW 24996, trauma expert and author. I practice out of Hermosa Beach, and work with clients remotely.

In my personal life, I enjoy cooking, seeking out different eateries and hiking trails, yoga, traveling, reading, painting, and connecting with my loved ones.
