I am committed to help you find the tools to heal.  

I provide a humanistic approach using eclectic theories such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with a touch of narrative. I specialize in complex trauma, addiction, anxiety, attachment, and depression. I have worked with many populations that have otherwise been shunned by society and felt that they had no recourse to heal. I am committed to connecting with you and helping you resolve the underlying issues that delay growth. Together we will help to identify your resilience, strengths, and purpose to meet you with your best self.



I have an extensive background in community mental health for the last 25 years. I have worked in multiple capacities throughout the Bay Area providing services in clinics and the local Psychiatric Emergency Hospital in an administrative capacity. At one point in my career I was motivated by my own self-discovery to try to give back and change the trajectory from administrative to psychology. Since that moment, I have never looked back. I believe that connection is the anchor in which we can start the journey towards understanding self-actualization, self-concept, peak experiences, and finding your hierarchy of needs.
