Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

What I see is that due to early misattunement with caregivers, we tend to become masters at pressuring ourselves to do more or to be perfect. Once we are able to own our self-compassion, and recognize our own self-efficacy, we can let this old, pressured way being of being go, and experience deep peace, self confidence and a sense of being in the present moment. Also, when this happens anxiety and depression naturally fall away. Simply put, we have become accustomed to pressuring ourselves to survive, but self-compassion, once internalized, allows us to see what we really are made of. This may sound a little vague, but the powerful and lasting results are anything but. I invite you to contact me and get started on the work of lasting change in your life.

How has your particular field of specialization evolved in recent years and how has that impacted your work?

We now know how to treat the earliest stresses in life using gentle, present focused techniques. This has allowed me to help people move forward in ways that they never thought possible. Key outcomes I see are enhanced self-esteem, greater peace and better relationships. Let's talk about what you would like for yourself.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Lasting change is very possible, and often more quickly than you may think! I specialize in helping people overcome life-long challenges.

Work History

I currently provide in-person therapy in my Encinitas, CA office, as well as teletherapy services. I am deeply invested in my clients success. My clients tell me that I'm easy to connect with, and most importantly, that the modern therapies I provide produce results. Whether they are looking to simply reduce day-to-day stress, develop more self-esteem, or have the relationship of their dreams my clients know they will be feeling better and moving forward in their lives with more confidence and peace. I developed my therapy approach at Community Research Foundation, a community mental health clinic, where I have worked since 2017. There I worked with severely mentally ill clients, who experienced more confidence and self acceptance, less anxiety and depression, and many of whom were able to get on with their lives through our work together. What's unique about my services as that I use the latest techniques to work in an almost painless way to directly treat the self-judgement that arose in those of us who had difficulty being truly and fully accepted by our parents. Some call this complex PTSD but all it requires is misattunement with our parents. When this is treated our true, confident and peaceful self emerges; and often more quickly than people think!
