About My Clients

What if there were a way to feel better, communicate differently, and get your needs met? I specialize in helping couples, adolescents, and adults find a safe place to work through problems, changes, grief, and depression, without fear of judgement. There is hope for healing. Whether you're a parent of a child with special needs, an adolescent who's being bullied, a couple stuck in the same old argument, or a person who's recently experienced a great loss, I'm here to help.

My Background and Approach

I earned my Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology from Santa Clara University. Under the tutelage of experts in the fields of cognitive-behavioral science, mindfulness, and trauma treatment, I developed a thorough understanding of the whole person, including the importance of the mind-body connection. In my undergraduate psychology program at San Jose State University, I studied neuroscience, perception, and cognition. I have traveled extensively in search of cultural understanding and have worked with people from a wide variety of perspectives, ethnicities, and physical abilities. My professional background includes business management, corporate staffing, and children’s ministry. In my personal life, I have walked alongside people who have experienced great loss and trauma as well as great joy. My overarching desire is to use all that I have learned for your benefit; to help you live your best life. Let's see if we're a good fit.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every person is created in the image of God. As such, every person is deserving of respect, dignity, empathy, and compassion. As a therapist, I do not think that the counseling process should be a mystery. Therefore, I work collaboratively with my clients to determine their goals, while supporting my clients' sense of agency, resilience, and self-efficacy. My volunteer experience has included work with: ABC Project Cornerstone (taught bullying prevention, promoted diversity); CityTeam (worked alongside addicts in recovery to serve homeless population); 1040i (worked alongside former street workers in rudimentary bakery in N. Africa); Parents Helping Parents (supported parents of children with special needs) Project Hired: (advocated for employment opportunities for clients with disabilities, including those from the deaf community, by offering insight to business leaders); Global Ischemia Foundation (assisted a patient with a traumatic brain injury)
