About Me

My Experience

I received my Master’s degree in Psychology from San Francisco University. My clinical areas of interest and experience over the last ten years include dual diagnosis (substance use/abuse and mental health), eating disorders, victims of crime and trauma, PTSD, depression, child sex trafficking, and children of adopted and/or foster care homes. I have worked in residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient levels of care and am trained in dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Sand Tray, and Art Therapy modalities. As a previous teacher and a parent myself, I have a passionate place in my heart for working with adolescents and their families to realize their full potential and become reconnected with themselves and each other. I look forward to working with you as you discover you and your path. Finding ways that inspire you and those around you. Learning how and the importance of taking care of yourself to be where you want and need to be. Supporting you to finally be accepting all of yourself!
