This is my general website for clients and colleagues who would like to learn more about me. If you are seeking therapy, please visit my private practice’s website by clicking here.

Clients

I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT 100070) in private practice who is especially passionate about working with teens, young adults, self-identified “nerds” of any kind, and individuals who are entrepreneurs, self-employed, and/or business owners. As a fellow nerd and entrepreneur, I understand a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for clients, and my theoretical orientation can be adapted to meet your unique needs.

Everyone experiences setbacks in life, which is why it’s important to me that your story be accepted without judgment. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is characterized by warmth, respect, growth, and humor. I believe in adopting a collaborative approach that emphasizes your strengths and focuses on solutions vs. dwelling on perceived weaknesses and problems. I utilize interventions that promote greater self-awareness and discovery of new skills that can be practiced between therapy sessions.

COLLEAGUES

For me, psychotherapy isn’t just a career – it’s a calling. That’s why I’ve also focused on supporting my fellow therapists as a leader, advocate, entrepreneur, and clinical supervisor within the mental health field.

I’m currently the Past-President for The California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and have served on several CAMFT committees over the years. I’ve worked tirelessly to advocate for fewer barriers to licensure as a therapist, paid positions for associates as the norm, and full voting rights for prelicensed members of CAMFT.

I founded Prelicensed, a free resource for associate marriage and family therapists, trainees, and students in California.

I work as a consultant for SimplePractice to support their prelicensed customers.

I serve as a Clinical Supervisor for CRF, a non-profit organization in San Diego County.
