Virtual Psychotherapy Practice Providing Mental Health Care & Treatment to Adults Throughout California
A psychotherapy practice that treats anxiety, stress, depression, & communication issues
My virtual psychotherapy practice provides mental health care and treatment to adults throughout California. I specialize in treating anxiety, stress, depression, and communication issues. Additionally, I support my clients in improving their self-esteem and managing challenging and impactful life transitions. I provide therapy to both individuals and couples.
There is no single therapeutic approach that will be effective or work well for every individual. My approach is strength-based and holistic. I’ve received advanced training and continue to develop and refine my clinical skills in several proven, evidence-based treatment modalities. I use Trauma-Informed Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Integrative approaches in my work with clients.
My clients report feeling less anxious and depressed, more self-awareness, and confidence, developing stronger communication skills, becoming more assertive, fully engaged, and enjoying life again.
Couples share that they have gained a deeper understanding of their relationship dynamics, regained trust, learned effective communication skills, strategic and effective coping skills, and enjoy greater intimacy and connection.
In addition to being a licensed Psychotherapist, I’m a Registered Nurse with clinical specialization in Adult Psychiatry. I collaborate well with Psychiatrists and Nurse Practitioners on behalf of my clients who require medication management for anxiety and depression. Such professional care coordination tremendously improves my clients' overall treatment effectiveness, safety, and the efficiency of their healthcare.

Life Is So Much More Difficult When Your Anxiety & Stress Are Out Of Control
Anxiety and stress are a message that something in your life is not going well and needs to be addressed. You may have big emotions caused by a painful breakup, unfulfilling job, insecurity, loneliness, or unresolved trauma that you haven’t effectively dealt with, yet.
What is your anxiety trying to teach you?
It’s time to listen to the message and heal whatever has been hurting. The right treatment will enable you to effectively overcome your anxiety
Without proper treatment, anxiety can and will linger.
Which of these anxiety and stress related symptoms do you experience?
- Excessive worries that don't go away even in the absence of a stressor
- Feeling restless, wound-up, on-edge, or out-of-control
- Headaches, digestive troubles, dizziness, or shaking
- Feeling easily fatigued
- Having difficulty concentrating; your mind going blank
- Being irritable, angry, and snapping at others
- Having muscle tension or jaw clenching
- Difficulty controlling feelings of worry
- Having sleep problems, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, restlessness, or unsatisfying sleep
- Appetite changes, you’ve noticed that your appetite has decreased, or perhaps you’re hungrier than usual, choosing comfort, or less than healthy foods to soothe your emotions
Meaningful Change is Possible
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I specialize in psychotherapy using evidence-based, scientific approaches, including Trauma-informed care, Attachment Theory, and integrative techniques designed to help you achieve the best results.
Regardless of the methods we use, you’ll find me to be warm, genuine, understanding, and a compassionate listener. I create an environment of acceptance, one in which you can comfortably share your thoughts and practice new and healthier ways of managing your feelings.
What Happens in Session?
If you’ve never been to therapy before, you may be wondering what you can expect during a session.
Most importantly, your session will be wholly focused on you, your needs, and your agenda.
I’ll take the time to truly get to know you, and together, we’ll build a relationship based on integrity, mutual respect, and, of course, complete confidentiality.
You can be assured of a safe, non-judgmental space to think, share, explore new ideas, identify actionable strategies, and practice fresh approaches while building your resilience.
You’ll benefit from psychoeducation, skill-building, and guidance and will be empowered to achieve the profound results you are seeking. You’ll receive support in exploring your options, gaining clarity, and developing resilience to navigate your path forward
Prepare to become fully engaged, and develop more knowledge, self-awareness, and profound wisdom, leading to transformative shifts in your mindset and behavior. You will reclaim your inner focus, energy, and, most of all, your joy.
I’ll help you feel like yourself again with a newfound sense of empowerment, purpose and joy.

Good Faith Estimate Notice
You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don't have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
