After many years working in the corporate world, I felt that I had a calling for my life to have an altruistic purpose. I decided to attend Antioch University Los Angeles to obtain my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology because of the program’s fierce dedication to approaching psychotherapy through a social justice lens. 

I have spent the last two years training at Southern California Counseling Center where I have had the honor of working with an extraordinarily diverse group of clients.  During my time at SCCC, I have been witness to the impact that unique forms of trauma have had on many of my clients. As a result, I have been inspired to pursue means of healing trauma. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TRM 1 (Trauma Resiliency Model).

As a therapist, I work from a place of unconditional positive regard for my clients and I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that feels safe enough to deeply explore your complex inner world. I think it’s important to examine the stories we tell ourselves, challenge some of our thoughts and learn to begin to treat ourselves with kindness.
