Background & Family
I grew up in the Midwest and moved to California for my undergraduate studies. I have lived in San Diego since 2005. I am a proud wife of a Navy Veteran and mother to our two fabulous kids. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, photography, and hiking.
Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy, University of San Diego, 2009
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology/Anthropology, University of Redlands, 2005
I have an unrestricted license to practice therapy as an MFT in the state of California.
License No. LMFT 52192
I am certified as a PREPARE/ENRICH counselor, an empirically-supported program for pre-marital therapy and marital enrichment.
I completed my training at UCSD Family & Sports Medicine where I focused on helping patients with chronic illnesses or other health-related challenges manage the stress and difficulty such problems created for them. My experience working with physicians/health care providers makes me uniquely qualified to treat mental health problems with consideration to their physiological origins. Because I love working with couples, I also sought additional training in sexual dysfunction, anger management in relationships, recovering from infidelity, and ways to improve communication in couples. I've worked with research organizations to develop treatment curriculum for anxiety disorders, which I specialize in. In 2014 I joined the clinical team of Brisas Recovery and Wellness Center in La Jolla, where I ran groups and provided therapy for adults seeking substance addiction treatment. The clinical services of Brisas has moved to Riverside, but I am so thankful I was able to be a part of the develpment of such a great treatment program! I have a strong background in the treatment of addictions, including those involving eating, sex/pornography, substances, and gambling.
