I believe that we are all doing the best we can, but life can be hard! You may have noticed patterns that you are not happy with in your relationships, work, or play. You are not alone if you are finding that you do not know how to understand where the patterns originated, what perpetuates these patterns, and how to change them. I am passionate about working with individuals in psychotherapy to help them find a deeper sense of self-awareness and self-compassion. I am dedicated to continuous learning about how to best help individuals as they navigate life transitions, periods of depression and anxiety, relational difficulties, and overcome other past and present stressors. Through connection, feeling, healing, and self-awareness, my goal is to help you know yourself so that you can enjoy a full and satisfying life. I am a Registered Psychological Associate working with Dr. Mojgan Khademi. I have an office in Hillcrest and accept Cigna insurance.

Birth, death, love, and heartbreak. These core experiences are inevitable to all humans, and yet, we are always surprised by how profoundly they shape our lives as individuals. As a clinical psychologist, I understand just how deeply we struggle to make sense of these transitions and the great lengths we will go to avoid the feelings involved. I’ve had the privilege of helping people work through the depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, anger, and interpersonal conflict that often result from this avoidance and create a deeper sense of self-compassion for the human condition. I have experience working with people of all ages, shapes, colors, and sizes, and specialized training working with young adults (18-30) and people struggling with eating disorders. I look forward to creating a warm and safe space for us to foster your healing and growth.

I am dedicated to helping those who are taking a step toward healing and self-exploration, and have worked with a diverse range of individuals, including adults and adolescents. I help clients as they navigate managing anxiety, depression, addiction, and relationship issues. I utilize a trauma-informed perspective and recognize that suffering, as an inevitable part of human experience, can have lasting impacts on our lives and relationships. However, it can also be a stepping stone toward a more meaningful life. I believe that psychotherapy is a powerful tool that facilitates this journey, and seek to be a helpful, supportive and empathic part of this journey with my clients. I work remotely and accept Cigna insurance. I am a Psychological Associate under the supervision of Dr. Khademi as I accrue my post-doctoral hours toward licensure.
