Working with seniors brings me immense joy and fulfillment. Their wisdom and life experiences make each interaction a valuable learning opportunity for me. Guiding them through important life transitions, whether it’s adjusting to retirement, coping with medical conditions, or dealing with the loss of loved ones, is an honor I cherish deeply.
Throughout my career, I have worked extensively with seniors, offering individual therapy, group therapy, and conducting both cognitive and personality assessments. I have supported individuals dealing with severe mental illness and various general medical conditions. Currently, at Total Life, my focus is on providing individual psychotherapy, addressing issues such as anxiety, chronic pain, depression, grief, loss, and life transitions
My therapeutic approach is characterized by warmth and empathy, creating a safe space for clients to explore their emotions and experiences. I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and a person-centered approach, guiding individuals to develop self-acceptance while equipping them with coping skills to improve their well-being. Additionally, I incorporate psychoeducation and mindfulness techniques to create an integrative approach to therapy.

My journey of working with seniors began during my graduate school practicum, where I had the privilege of providing cognitive rehabilitation and group psychotherapy to geriatric individuals with cognitive disorders. This experience ignited my passion for working with this population. Over the years, I have further honed my skills through individual psychotherapy and assessments, assisting seniors in coping with various life challenges, grief, loss, and the effects of medical conditions such as cancer.
In my personal life, I am both a human and a dog mom, cherishing the joys of nurturing and caring for my loved ones. Beyond my role as a therapist, I am passionate about music, food, and travel. I find solace in attending musical concerts and festivals, discovering new culinary delights, and exploring different cities and trails, creating cherished memories along the way.
