I am a licensed marriage and family therapist located in Laguna Hills, California. I work purposefully with couples to identify areas of pain and stuck points in order to move through them and create healthier, more joyful relationships. Utilizing techniques from Gottman Couples Therapy, I provide couples with a safe space to utilize new tools and skills.

I also work with individual adults and teens by supporting each individual's unique journey, challenging old ideas and behaviors that are no longer beneficial and helping each person to gently evolve into who they want and deserve to be. 

Whether you’re a busy couple looking to mend a broken or failing relationship, an intelligent being wanting to manage paralyzing anxiety or establish and maintain boundaries in your relationships – I can help.


I am also the wife of a U.S. Navy Chief Veteran and sincerely understand the unique demands and rewards of military life and culture. 

I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation for individuals and couples. Call me at 714-390-1652 or email me here to schedule a time to speak and together we can discover what you need to build a better life.

Experience
Since 2009 I have been working with individuals and teens to provide skills and support with grief and loss, academic struggles, behavioral issues, parenting concerns, and  communication challenges. In 2010, I began working directly with adults struggling with addiction and mental illness within the criminal justice system, by providing understanding, skills and support with sobriety, social skills, relationship issues, trauma and family reunification. In 2013, I joined a psychotherapy group practice (OC Therapy Group) so that I could bring skills and guidance to couples and families within the community. In late 2014, I started the transition to my own private practice in Laguna Hills, where I currently work with couples and individuals from all over Southern California.
