Hello there! I am an Associate Marriage and Family therapist that serves the Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez community in private practice. I love and am honored to work with people. 

I tend to be known for my use of candor and humor within a session and honor where you are at and feeling that day. Together, we find our own gentle flow of the therapeutic experience. 

I have worked within several sectors of the Santa Barbara community including individuals who are in the recovery process from substance use and individuals diagnosed with two or more mental health conditions. I have also served and continue to work within the Goleta Union School District counseling and serving healthy doses of psychoeducation each week with elementary school-aged children both individually and within groups. These experiences have electrified my passion for working with parents and the adolescent to successfully have everyone working off the same page, wrangling with the complications ADHD can present, and parents who are splitting. I have completed Level 1 of EMDR training with a concentration in children and adolescents through the EMDRIA-certified EMDR Institute. 


My personal interests include: spending some downtime curled up with a good British mystery (Elizabeth George!), a good hot cup of coffee (mornings) or tea (afternoons), and finding someplace that is playing live music (hopefully a guitar is involved), and spending time with my family and two dogs (Uzi and Mu).
