Registered Associate Marriage Family Therapist #124337
Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor #9212
Using warmth and empathy, I provide a safe environment for you to explore how to strengthen your sense of self and your intimate relationships, enabling you to heal and grow authentically. I offer compassionate support to individuals and couples facing relationship difficulties, adjusting to challenging life transitions, and/or hoping to improve mental well-being.
I specialize in couples and can help you improve communication, reconnect with your partner, and deepen intimacy. My goal is to help you gain personal insight, improve relationships, and explore life’s concerns, conflicts, and contradictions. I use Attachment Theory, existential humanism (the search for meaning and self-realization) and an emotion-focused approach to help identify feelings and behaviors. I believe you are the expert on you and your experience.
I have experience with LGBTQ+ and speak German, French, Swedish and English.

Certified Addictions Counselor, CADC I CiCA01160519
Tel: (805) 724-0915
I believe we are hardwired for connection. When we feel disconnected from self, we also feel disconnected from our lives and relationships. My goal for you is to be healthy and happy and to have satisfying and fulfilling relationships. I help individuals, and couples get through challenging times in the areas of communication, intimacy, parenting, life transitions (divorce, career changes, aging), and addiction. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety. My goal is to help you feel better and live better.
I use an integrative therapy style. Using attachment theory and neuropsychology, I weave in CBT, trauma-informed, and person-centered approaches to help increase resiliency, improve relationships, regulate emotions, enhance communication and promote healthy coping. I am trained in Gottman Method couples therapy and am a fully trained Nurturing Parenting counselor. I am a Certified Addictions Counselor, a Certified Trauma Professional, and fully trained in EMDR. As an ally, I have experience working with LGBTQIA+ clients.
I provide a safe, supportive environment in our comfortable office or via telehealth where you can process life challenges. I want to help ease your pain and work with you to be your best self: the person you are meant to be.

Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, #133082
Tel: (805) 242-6495
I would be honored to be part of your journey of healing and growth by providing a warm and non-judgemental space to process life’s most confusing, joyful, and painful moments. My goal is to help you cultivate greater self love, awareness, and understanding. The insights that I have gained from years of my own therapy have facilitated meaningful transformations in my relationships with others and within myself; I am fueled in this work by a desire to offer that opportunity to others.
I work with youth, couples, and individuals to build on strengths, improve communication skills, and identify areas for growth. I am a member of the queer community and feel passionately about serving LGBTQPIA2S+ people. I have professional experience working with this community at Pacific Pride Foundation, at Noah’s Anchorage (a crisis shelter for youth) and during the two years that I volunteered with the Peace Corps in Nicaragua.
My approach weaves together a few modalities to guide our work: a focus on our connection (relational therapy), childhood environment (psychodynamic therapy), and experiences within the larger context of culture and society (feminist therapy) as the main sources of information. These theoretical orientations build on my training at Pacifica Graduate Institute, a program which emphasizes depth psychology (the unconscious as expressed through image, dream, myth, etc.).
I hold an undergraduate degree from Scripps College in Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies and in Latin American Studies. I offer bilingual therapy sessions in both Spanish and English. I am Reiki level 2 certified. I also offer EMDR Therapy.

As a person-centered therapist, I lean into everything you bring to the therapeutic process. I have training in somatic psychology, archetypal psychology, trauma informed strategies, gender and sexuality, and evidence-based psychodynamics. We will leverage this toolbox in a creative, dynamic, and compassionate process.
I believe in supporting all bodies–I am sex positive, and allied with polyamory, kink and queer. I’m also neuro-divergent-informed. I embrace cultural and racial diversity. I hold a MA and PhD in Mythological Studies with Depth Psychology as well as a MA in Clinical Psychology with Somatic Psychology emphasis.
Clinically, I focus on areas of sexuality, addiction, parenting and identity. I am both a painter and a writer and thrive in supporting creative processes in groups, couples, and with individuals.

Together we can create the life you have always envisioned for yourself. My style of therapy draws from a person-centered approach, empowering you to be the author in your healing journey.

I work with LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples and I am passionate about viewing therapy through a cultural lens; I am attentive to social justice issues and systemic factors that may impact a person’s sense of well-being. I am BDSM and Kink allied.
