Everyone experiences challenges from time to time, but when the tough times are starting to outweigh the good times or you keep seeing the same patterns repeat over and over in your life, you may want to consider seeking help. 

Even when you have friends and family who offer support, it can sometimes be difficult to hear your own voice amidst the advice of so many others. I am here not to give you advice, but to help you learn to listen to and trust yourself deeply and fully so that you can live the kind of life you’ve always wanted.

How I Work

As you learn to trust yourself, you will begin to loosen the grip that anxiety, depression, and shame have on your life. Rather than reacting to things out of fear, you will start to make decisions that are in line with your true self. Together we will begin to delve into understanding the deeper, underlying causes behind the problems you are experiencing. As we bring awareness to the root causes of your issues, we will begin to change the way you see yourself, your relationships, and the world around you.

Drawing on my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and psychosomatic work, I blend a pragmatic approach with an experiential one. I will give you practical tools to cope with and overcome the problems you are experiencing while also helping to address and heal the underlying causes of those problems. I find that attacking the problems on both fronts– the present and past– helps to create lasting changes that endure over time.

In addition to my therapy practice, I am an adjunct professor at the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology and enjoy ballet, yoga, cooking, and traveling. I love exploring other cultures through my travels and I am bilingual in SpanishI look forward to helping you in any way I can.


Hi Shannon, I just wanted to reach out and express my gratitude for you and give you an update. Since last talking with you I broke up with my boyfriend, moved back to California, and I am continuing on my journey to find what it is I’m supposed to be doing with my career. You helped me realize my self worth and I’m grateful that I had an unbiased outside opinion. Acting on what we talked about changed my life and has since empowered me so much in every decision.

First I wanted to thank you for a great first time ever experience with professional therapy yesterday. The whole experience was very positive and I felt like I was talking to a friend at the same time who just happened to be a professional therapist and I would definitely highly recommend you to any of my friends male or female.

I hope you are doing wonderful! I'm still running and figuring life out. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help. Throughout my life, I've seen psychologists and psychiatrists and I always thought they were all pointless and terrible people with a college degree and a title that just made money off of people dwelling about the past. Then I met you. You really are a gem and helped me more than you know through a time when there was no one. I think understanding the past is important, but not to dwell on it. You always made me think of the future.
