                        Welcome ♥

I am an integrative psychotherapist based in North County San Diego. Integrative Mental Health is my passion, and I support clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship or family stress, life transitions, substance abuse, spirituality, and medical problems. I have a special interest in working with adults looking for a mind-body-spirit approach, and who want to make life-style changes that support their mental health and well-being.

Integrative mental health combines traditional forms of psychotherapy with other complimentary practices and approaches to healing. I practice from a strengths-based perspective, with an emphasis on mindfulness and honoring the mind-body connection.


I have provided therapy in a range of settings including hospitals, inpatient facilities, schools, outpatient mental health clinics, and private practice. I have worked with clients from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, and welcome all identities, orientations, and beliefs.

One thing that these experiences have consistently taught me, is that there is much more to healing than our mainstream healthcare system can explain and address. I frequently work with people who have tried traditional approaches like talk therapy and medications, but have failed to experience the results they were looking for. Often we uncover that they were trying to solve the wrong problems and with the wrong solutions.

You do not have to remain stuck in negative thoughts, feelings, circumstances, or what you've experienced in the past. With the right guidance and support, we are all capable of using our lives' challenges as opportunities for growth and positive change.

If you are interested in learning more about my approach and services, please see those sections of my page. If you are interested in scheduling a free consultation call, please visit the contact page. In my blog I write about various integrative health and psychology topics.


Thank you for visiting and I look forward to connecting with you.
