I earned my PhD degree in counseling psychology at Iowa State University, and completed my pre-doctoral internship at Stanford University. I received my postdoctoral training at California College of the Arts, as well as the Native American Health Center. I had the privilege working with clients from a variety of backgrounds. I have extensive experience in working with stress, depression, grief and loss, attachment and relationship issues, existential/spiritual crisis, and minority/immigrant issues. I am skilled in a variety of evidence-based psychotherapy approaches and interventions, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion-Focused Therapy(EFT), and Interpersonal Psychotherapy(IPT). My clients often describe me as compassionate, perceptive, and collaborative.
