In my effort to help people find relief from suffering, I help them gain clarity, balance, and peace in a warm and compassionate space. I use a holistic approach, incorporating the mind, body, and spirit, to find a way to heal from past challenges or traumas. I specialize in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, substance abuse, interpersonal/relationship issues, and complex trauma.
I earned my Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from John F. Kennedy University, an APA accredited program, in Pleasant Hill, CA, as well as, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of California in Santa Cruz.
Since 2005, I have worked with a variety of diverse populations from children and families to severely persistently mentally ill adults to those from marginalized backgrounds who suffer from mild to moderate mental health symptoms. As a supervisor at a primary care clinic and a clinical administrator at a residential program, I served as a guide and teacher to both the clients I was treating and the interns I was mentoring.
