Find Your Resources To Flourish

Self-care is essential for a balanced mind, body, and soul. Mindfulness is crucial to the act of self-care. Through this practice, we gain clarity and awareness about the quality of the relationship we have with ourselves and the world around us. We can also identify unkind behaviors, thoughts, and judgments that negatively impact our experiences. Ultimately, we experience a shift in mindset and a genuine desire to treat ourselves with more compassion.

The heart of self-care is self-compassion – an understanding, kindness, and acceptance towards the self. Over time self-care will no longer be something you go to when you need it, but something you have already embedded within your life.

Finding the Right Therapist For You

Therapy sessions are designed to be a safe space for you to heal, grow, and empower your inner voice. I want to help you achieve your goals all the while inspiring you to live, learn, and lead with authentic purpose. I believe finding a comfortable match between therapist and client is essential to successful therapy. Whether we work together in the office or online, you will always have my support as we explore challenges and themes that keep you feeling stuck. Starting therapy for the first time or deciding that you could use some support can feel intimidating. Knowing this, it is my mission to ensure my clients feel comfortable and safe. The last thing I want to do is have therapy be an additional stress!

My office is located in Hermosa Beach and I have provided counseling and therapy services to teens and adults of all ages in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, and throughout the South Bay.
