there lies your treasure

If life feels like it’s gotten off course, you’ve already taken an important step by being here. Seeking growth, expansion, or meaning in your life is a commendable step but asking for help and opening up to someone new can feel vulnerable and intimidating. Using empathy, curiosity, and tender humor I meet you in your space and create an environment aimed toward your safety, freeing you to engage in the process of self-discovery. Carl Jung called suffering a great teacher. My role is to help you unlock its hidden lessons and support you back to a healing place.


I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Los Angeles, California. I received my Masters in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and have experience working with adults, couples, and adolescents in community mental health, residential treatment, and private practice settings.

When our inner archetypal feminine and masculine are off balance, we may experience suffering in various forms. Using this lens to explore depression, disordered eating, interpersonal issues, military re-integration, and other struggles you may be facing, we can approach your healing through needed traits of the feminine including nurturance, creativity, mindfulness, and deep curiosity. This approach aims to revive and repair instincts and self-image that have been compromised under the cultural pressures of productivity, materialism, and perfectionism.

Changing behaviors is a noble step toward self-improvement, but just mowing the weeds doesn't stop them from growing back. The process of self-discovery is a beautiful one that allows your whole self to come into focus. Digging up and healing the unconscious material behind your struggle -- tending to the root of the weeds -- can lead to long-lasting change. I can partner you in that excavation.
