Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #138365
I was born and raised in San Francisco until I moved to Eugene and attended University of Oregon where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and Sociology, focusing on the effects of trauma on the brain, body, and relationships. I went on to receive my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Palo Alto University where I focused on trauma-related populations, specifically in first responders and with childhood trauma.
I take a compassionate, non-judgmental, and curious approach to therapy that fosters a warm and safe environment. I believe therapy can be fun and creative and as such utilize a variety of techniques with clients, including CBT, art therapy, play therapy, and mindfulness-based techniques in order to keep therapy more engaging.
I genuinely enjoy working with kids and have experience working with those with autism and special needs. I have helped clients with trauma, anxiety, adjustment post-pandemic, anger management, grief, and social-emotional skills.
Outside of therapy, I love spending time at the beach, going on walks, listening to music, reading, and cooking. I enjoy spending time with family and friends doing a variety of things, including going to concerts, museums, and watching movies together! To decompress, I like engaging in creative activities, kickboxing, and watching my favorite movie or TV show.
