Connection Hope Opportunity Action


As a student and practitioner of the healing arts for over 20 years, and a psychotherapist for the past 10 years, I am inspired to help people heal from emotional wounds of the past, enhance wellness, thrive, and create success. I help you discover your strengths, then provide skills and strategies so that you develop these strengths and connect more to yourself, your relationships, and your community. 

I have two Master's Degrees in psychology. My experience includes providing psychotherapy at a variety of settings including a psychiatric hospital, residential PTSD program for active duty military and veterans, community counseling clinic, hospice, wellness center, and in private practice. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Brainspotting, and Clinical Hypnotherapy. I am skilled in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Depth Psychology, and Positive Psychology. In addition, I am experienced in somatic approaches which provides additional perspective on the relationship between the mind and body. 

The foundation of my therapeutic approach is grounded in connection, acceptance, and positive regard. In a session, you will find me to be empathetic, supportive, pragmatic, intuitive, and solution-focused.  Together we will develop strategies and actions steps to help you reach your goals. My aim is your success! Call (805) 625-3786 or email me at to schedule an appointment or a 15 minute phone consultation.
