About Me

What I offer as a therapist comes not only from education and training, but also from lived experience. As someone who has had my own journey with adoption and mental health struggles, I have experienced being on the receiving end of therapy. I always enjoyed therapy and wondered what it would be like to sit on the other side of the room! It took a while, though, to occur to me that I could actually make that my reality.


I received my undergraduate degree in 2010 in Human Biology at Stanford University. I was working towards a career in public health and epidemiology (the study of diseases); however, various factors did not seem to coalesce. I know what it’s like to feel a lack of purpose and desperately search for meaning. It was in this place that I felt a calling to become a therapist.


I achieved my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in 2018 from John F. Kennedy University in San Jose. I have practiced at two counseling agencies and an elementary school. My areas of focus include mood disorders, adoption and attachment issues, and relational issues. I am continually learning and expanding my knowledge as a clinician. I maintain an active membership with California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).


Outside of therapy, I am very involved in movements for social justice. I also fight to break down the stigma of mental illness, both in my personal life, and through my work with National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Santa Cruz County.
