I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Parent Coach. I currently have a private practice and consult and supervise at a K-8 school.
I have collaborated with hundreds of parents and families to help overcome family struggles in the home while integrating tools related to the Positive Discipline approach by Dr. Jane Nelsen. I am both a Certified Positive Discipline Parenting Educator and a Certified Positive Discipline Classroom Educator.
I also incorporate training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions), Parent Based Training for Highly Dependent Adult Children, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Non-Violent Resistance, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness Based Interventions for Children and Teens, Redirecting Children’s Behavior, and Neuroscience, among other things.
I worked at a K-8th grade public charter school as a Counselor and Mental Health Services Provider from 2012- 2021, supporting children, adolescents, adults, couples and families providing individual, and group therapy and parenting education. I continue to supervise and consult there.
I am an empathetic, compassionate and accepting individual who believes in both deeply accepting and loving our imperfect selves, but also growing emotionally throughout our lifetime. I am someone who is committed to walking my talk and I use the same tools that I teach in my own life every day.
I’ve had many years of experience in the business world, working in the legal real estate and land use industry. There I gained hands on training in navigating a work environment and learning win-win negotiation skills and conflict resolution.
I have also served on many non-profit boards and schools and helped design and deliver social emotional curriculum in connection with those positions.
I even briefly had a successful matchmaking business which helped launched my journey into emotional support by inspiring me to help young adults work on themselves and create the life and relationships they want.
I live in San Diego with my multi-talented husband, who is an educator, writer and speaker (and Spartan racer), and near our fun loving son, a born leader and one of my greatest teachers (who just graduated from UC Davis and launched his computer science career with much perseverance though the pandemic), where we play, learn and grow together with a lot of silliness, love and laughter.
