About

I work with individuals, couples and families on relationship issues. I also welcome people with reproductive and maternal mental health concerns, including infertility, pregnancy loss and postpartum adjustment. My work integrates trauma-informed and culturally diverse care and my style is warm, genuine and collaborative.

Historically the field of psychology has pathologized certain identities and experiences. As a care provider, I am aware of this history and offer a welcoming and nonjudgmental space where clients can express themselves and their concerns as freely as possible. 

I'm licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences and have a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in depth therapy. My ongoing education includes anti-oppression work and nature-based and movement-based approaches.
