About Me

Hi, my name is Kristi. I am a LCSW in California. I am passionate about helping people who are experiencing anxiety, panic attacks/panic disorder, and PTSD and have a lot of experience with successfully treating these. I fully completely my EMDR training and consultation hours in March 2023. I have since completed the requirements and submitted my packet to become an EMDR Certified Therapist and am currently waiting to receive it. I am a big fan of using EMDR, somatic therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I have found these interventions very helpful for my own healing. I am a mom to a preschooler and am fortunate to love what I do for my career too!

Education & Experience

I began my career in Skid Row in downtown LA working with the homeless veteran population. I also worked at the Greater Los Angeles VA for a few years. I switched over to private practice in 2021. I see clients with insurance through Path and see private cash pay clients through my own independent private practice.
