Hello, and welcome to New Day! You are a strong and courageous person for thinking about seeking help, and I would love to work with you to build on these great traits so that you can become the best version of yourself. Everyone struggles and everyone could use support from time to time, and I would be honored to be able to help you reach your goals. 

I specialize in working with young adults and the unique concerns they face including relationship struggles, identity concerns, and mood and anxiety disorders, and I apply evidenced-based approaches to help individuals find lasting solutions to the concerns that brought them in the door. I also have extensive training in eating disorder recovery, and I help women and men feel more comfortable about their bodies and their relationship with food. Additionally, I have a passion for working with new moms and the adjustment concerns that come with motherhood, including the possible complications of postpartum depression and anxiety. I received specialized training to work with this population through Postpartum Support International, and as a parent myself, I completely understand the challenges that occur when your whole world changes once a new little person arrives. 

In addition to therapy services, I also provide psychological assessment services for children and adults with ADHD and learning disabilities, and I provide supportive therapy for those that face the day-to-day challenges that come from these concerns. 

I began my work as a clinician in the Pacific Northwest, and when I grew tired of all the gray skies, I ventured down to warm, sunny California. Most of my training and experience has occurred in university counseling centers and private practices, and I operate from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. This model focuses on helping clients problem-solve, and it is more active and skills-based in its style. So if you want to find practical solutions and change that withstands the test of time, we can do some great work together.
