Welcome, I’m glad you’re here! My values of consent, equity, safety, collaboration, and empowerment are at the core of the work we will do together. I consider therapy a space in which we work together to understand your interpersonal patterns, explore your emotions, develop coping skills, and create accountability for working toward your goals.
The quality of healthy coexistence will begin in the therapy room through connection and collaboration. I have found Relational-Cultural Therapy to be highly effective for building rapport and allowing clients to leave sessions feeling understood and connected. My work is trauma-informed and incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), attachment, feminist, and liberatory theoretical perspectives. Some things that drive my work are my deep commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community, sexual health, transformative justice, pleasure and play, liberation for all, and the power of human connection.
I am a third year doctoral student at Pacific University. I have received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from California State University, Channel Islands and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University. Throughout my professional journey, I have worked in a variety of settings including working with adolescents in academia, substance use detox and rehabilitation, crisis lines, and community mental health services.
