Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
Hermosa Beach, CA
I’m a mom of 3 school aged kids. I spent a decade in the pharmaceutical industry, before I was a stay-at-home mom, and I’ve also been a yoga teacher, substitute teacher, and volunteer, to name a few. Born and raised in southern Kentucky, I have called Manhattan Beach and the South Bay home since 2017.
I obtained my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University-Los Angeles and received my training during graduate school from Jewish Family & Children's Services in Long Beach.
Through my education and training, I quickly found that I have a knack for seeing people that they can feel. I am naturally curious, and that curiosity allows me to help my clients look at things in ways that never occurred to them before. I have been described as warm, compassionate and relatable.
I absolutely love helping adults (especially moms), adolescents and couples to feel more peace and joy in life. My passion is connecting with others in a meaningful way. I believe that my clients are experts in their own lives, and I work with them to help empower themselves to harness that expertise.
I also wholeheartedly believe that a strong connection with a therapist can facilitate lasting change. If you're feeling exhausted, stuck and yearning for more, you are not alone. You've come to the right place. I can help you feel lighter, less lonely, and more like the YOU that you desire to be. I am passionately committed to turning rough patches into springboards for real and lasting change.
