Hello and welcome! I work with individuals, couples and families on relationship issues. I also welcome people with reproductive and maternal mental health concerns, including pregnancy loss, fertility and postpartum adjustment. My style as a therapist 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. 

My practice integrates trauma-informed and culturally sensitive care and I welcome people with alternative lifestyles and interests. My view of mental health spans individual, family, social and cultural influences.


I'm licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences and have a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology. I'm also certified in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C).  

Outside of work, I have a longtime mindfulness practice and do CrossFit regularly. People with these interests are welcome to reach out, as I understand and appreciate both practices deeply!

Below is more info on my professional background. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
