In-Person Sessions
Teletherapy/Virtual Sessions

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have worked with diverse populations in private practice, on the Kaiser outpatient and crisis team, in a hospital setting, and with youth experiencing homelessness. I am passionate about helping people pleasers and perfectionists, people who have experienced trauma, and people working through social anxiety. I am queer and love working with other queer people in my practice.

I love to learn and have done in depth training in EMDR, IFS, somatic work, and ACT. These are the approaches I mostly use in therapy, but I believe that therapeutic change happens due to the relationship. I am highly relational, client centered, and work in partnership with my clients to sort out their thoughts and emotions. My goal is to create an environment where all of you can show up, feel seen, and be able to live more authentically and at peace in your life.

I am certified in EMDR, an EMDR Approved Consultant, and have extensive training to work with people with complex trauma.
