Do you feel stuck? Do you feel your world getting smaller because you’re struggling to overcome traumatic experiences? Do you no longer enjoy the things you used to love? Are you experiencing unexpected mood swings? Do you feel isolated or alone? Do you feel like you’re losing control? 

These are common sentiments I hear from people seeking care. 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Army Veteran.  I have experience working in a hospital

inpatient setting, inpatient residential treatment centers, as an embedded asset in a Marine Corps

unit, forensic mental health, private practice, and a variety of Veterans & academic spaces

throughout my academic career.  During my time in the military and my professional experiences,

I have seen firsthand the struggles of people surviving with mental health conditions.  

I utilize an eclectic, holistic approach to partner with you and understand your lived experiences. 

I aspire to help you to live a more joyful, fulfilling life and achieve your goals.  I strive to create a non-judgmental, therapeutic environment.  I am a strengths-based, trauma-informed therapist that

wants to help you navigate life and heal from traumatic experiences.  

I graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a Master of Social Work in 2016 and

have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and American studies from the University of California,

Santa Cruz (UCSC) in 2011.  I am also trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Eye

Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy.
