I like to take a collaborative approach with clients as they are the experts in their own life. Therapy is a journey of exploration and healing. I employ modalities that best fit my client and adapt as needed. As someone that has worked in the mental health field for well over 10 years, I feel honored to share space with others that are working hard to heal and thrive in their lives. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
MSW - Social Work, California State University Sacramento
I became a mental health professional because I always knew I wanted to help others. I was fascinated with therapy and how it can help people heal.
Outside of work I enjoy hiking, spending time with my 2 dogs, yoga, and flower arranging.
I read a daily meditation to start my day on a positive note with the right intention.
I have read Snow Flower and the Secret more than once because it has the ability to transport me to another place and time. One filled with hope for the future. Its message is really about how to find happiness.
The Trevor Project. They provide space for at-risk LGBTQ youth to call in a crisis. Our youth need safe places to go when they feel unsafe.
I recharge by binge watching TV, spending time with friends, or just playing with my dogs.
I have 2 dogs. Ollie ate my Christmas tree light wire which was not funny, but I was able to rig it to make them work anyway.
