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 and believe and do whatever sparks joy in your life.
Therapy:
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 treat 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!
