I am passionate about assisting individuals on their path to acceptance, growth, and healing. I feel honored to come alongside others to help them learn new ways to understand themselves through personal exploration and curiosity. I believe creating healthy relationships and boundaries, gaining a sense of self-acceptance, self-care, and embracing strengths while developing weaknesses leads to healing and lasting change. I focus on establishing a safe, comfortable, and trusting environment that allows space to assist individuals in strengthening, developing, and find healing in their relationships.

I enjoy working with teens, young adults, men, women, parents, married couples, and engaged couples. I am SYMBIS certified to offer premarital and marital counseling with the SYMBIS (Save Your Marriage Before it Starts) curriculum.


As a child of divorced parents, I walked through the heartache, struggles, and adjustments divorce brings to a family in my teenage years. I wish that I had a trusted therapist to come alongside me during that time to sort through the confusion, feelings, and emotions I was experiencing to make the journey a little less overwhelming. My office is located off of Avenida Pico in San Clemente providing both in person and Telehealth services. I invite you to call or email me to ask questions, set up a consultation, or book an appointment.

positivity for you... Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away. - George Eliot
