About Me
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist providing counseling and psychotherapy services to the residents of Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and surrounding areas. The process of finding a therapist is a difficult one and finding the right fit is one of the most important parts of growth and healing in therapy. Just by taking this time to read about me you have already made the most important step towards improving your life.

In my private practice, I specialize in psychotherapy with adults, couples, and families focusing on but not limited to marriage and family therapy, anxiety, depression, communication, stress management and more.

I also love working with tweens, teens, and young emerging adults. We focus on developing autonomy and independence, building self esteem and confidence, and working on managing stress, anxiety, depression, and many other emotions that may come along during this pivotal time in their lives.

While many therapists remain passive, I take pride in taking an active role throughout the therapeutic process, joining in and collaborating with my clients rather than being a quiet participant. I believe that direct feedback is an essential component in helping facilitate change in a safe environment, while still honoring and respecting every client’s boundaries.

If you’re not sure of exactly what you need or want to talk more about how we might work together, contact me today for a FREE consultation.


I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Family and Human Development, Magna Cum Laude from Arizona State University. My graduate work was completed at California Lutheran University where I completed a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.


I have worked in clinics and private practices which have developed my skills as a therapist. My supervision with 4 different supervisors during that time exposed me to a variety of interventions and models of treatment. I constantly challenge myself to continue to grow and expand as a therapist.

Counseling Approach

I incorporate a variety of therapeutic models that are solution focused and evidence-based such as cognitive behavior therapy as well as being integrative and holistic with my approach. My specific model for treatment depends on the needs and goals of the client.
