I am a Bay Area native with a passion for working with people. My favorite part about therapy is helping each person find strength within themselves. I offer a non-judgmental, conversational approach to treatment that weaves exploration with practical, evidence-based coping skills. I am especially interested in supporting children, adults, and families who are motivated to improve communication, learn new skills, build self-confidence, and empower themselves to make desired changes.
After earning my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Santa Clara University, I completed my Masters in Clinical Psychology at the University of San Francisco. Since 2011, I have supported children and families of color through community mental health, youth in both public and non-public school environments, and adults with severe depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders. I currently lead two adult hospital-based group therapy programs at El Camino Hospital.
In my free time, you can find me hiking, spending time with my family, and playing with my corgi.
