My mission is to help my clients achieve a happy and healthy mind. A great way to start your journey may begin as simply as walking down to the beach to take advantage of the ocean’s natural calming and healing effects.

Experience Greater Mental Clarity Through Therapy

As my practice is located in the South Bay region, I want to encourage my clients to make time to visit the water.

In my client-centered approach to therapy, it is my goal to work on an individualized basis to figure out what practices work best for YOU.
