I am a passionate clinician eager to walk alongside you. I have worked with children, teens and adults across many different life stages. I am particularly passionate about walking alongside clients as they navigate through significant life transitions and the stress that comes with growing in their identities.
I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is a model that emphasizes the connections between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I am also passionate about the utilization of a psychodynamic elements, allowing the individual to actively unravel, experience and understand their true deep-rooted feelings and beliefs.
I have worked in the mental health community for the last 6 years engaging with diverse populations, ages and diagnosis. I am eager to connect with you, and support you on your journey. Reach out today!

I find our brains and psyches fascinating and love to learn alongside clients and help others understand themselves better.
I love DIY projects, working with my hands and adventuring in the outdoors.
I tend to my plants and make sure they are watered and cared for. It helps me slow down, be present and breathe.
The Lord of the Rings series. I love the story, creativity and character development.
Homeboy Industries. I love the reparative work they do providing hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated people, allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.
