Therapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California and Utah

Whether you stay in, leave religion, or land somewhere in between, the most important thing is that you heal from any aspect of your religious experience that has caused harm. 

I am faith affirming, meaning that I work within your belief system. I support your self-determination to live, believe, and do whatever sparks joy in your life.
I offer in person and virtual therapy to individuals, couples, and families living in California or Utah. I also occasionally offer virtual group therapy and support groups. In person sessions are offered in Carlsbad, CA. 

I help people with:

-Religious Traumatic Syndrome
-Faith transitions
-Purity culture, sexual shame, and mission trauma
-Differentiation from religion of origin and family of origin
-Values work + rebuilding identity
-Co-occuring mental illness (such as depression, anxiety, mood regulation challenges, and eating disorders)
-Relationship challenges
-Mixed faith marriage

My Approach: 

-Parts and Somatic Work
-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
-Values and identity work
-Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills

Using a trauma informed approach, I help you heal from your past and discover your most authentic self so that you can build a life on your terms. 

I pull from multiple modalities and often utilize CBT, DBT skills, ACT values work, and parts work. I am LGBTQ + affirming, am body positive, sex positive, and neurodivergent informed.

After an assessment we'll create a treatment plan together to address your most pressing needs and will get to the healing!
