On finding a therapist...

Seeking help amidst the sea of therapists out there is overwhelming to say the least, and one's mental health is so personal, it is hard to know who can help. Psychotherapy is a collaboration in pursuit of your growth and development. I hope to provide a safe and private space where you feel comfortable to talk about the matters of the heart that plague you. I believe you deserve nothing less than a respectful and ethical relationship where we can bring light to the darker spaces inside that house some of your deepest pains and heartbreak.

While helping you manage your symptoms in an immediate way will be a critical part of our work together, I also want to help you address the cause of your symptoms so that you can enjoy lasting change in your life.

Be with those who help your being.


Who I work with

In my practice I offer therapy to individuals, couples, and adolescents. I also offer psychoanalysis to adults, a long COVID support group, and supervision and consultation to mental health professionals.


I work with patients on a variety of life's difficulties, most commonly depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have helped patients with issues of executive functioning/attention deficit, addiction, Alzheimer's, divorce, eating disorders, grief, relationship distress, and self esteem.


I work with a broad range of people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. I have particular facility with individuals of Christian faith, Pacific Islanders, and individuals who identify on the LGBTQ+ spectrum.

As I gain more experience and add years to my career, I feel increasingly humbled by the sacred nature of working closely with all persons from all walks of life. Across the board I continue to see, just as relationships have the power to hurt us, they also heal us.

It doesn’t interest me if there is one God or many gods. I want to know if you belong or feel abandoned, if you can know despair or see it in others.



Working together

Right now I am offering therapy remotely via Zoom with the option to meet in person in Pasadena, CA. If you are hoping to use insurance for therapy, it is important to know that I am an out of network provider.


If you are interested in working together, having a brief phone consultation is the first step.

An honorable human relationship—that is, one in which two people have the right to use the word “love”—is a process, delicate, violent, often terrifying to both persons involved, a process of refining the truths they can tell each other... It is important to do this because we can count on so few people to go that hard way with us.
