About Me

In my career, I have worked extensively with trauma and its sequelae in a variety of populations. I am currently in private practice and work mainly with adults at this time. I have worked in IOP/PHP settings providing EMDR therapy. Prior to that, I was with Para Los Niños in Los Angeles for six and a half years working with children and their families living in poverty. At Para Los Niños, in addition to providing extensive clinical work in the community to children and their families, I supervised clinicians and developed a trauma training program to educate the clinical staff in trauma-competent care. I also provided a variety of trainings to parents and teachers on trauma and related topics, and assisted Para Los Niños charter schools with the implementation of trauma-informed practices in the classroom. Though I worked with children and adolescents of all ages, my clinical specialty was the birth-to-five population, and the treatment of trauma and attachment disorders with Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). I have maintained a private practice since 2014, specializing in adults with histories of childhood trauma (and trauma in adulthood), who present with a variety of symptoms including PTSD, anxiety, depression, dissociative symptoms and disorders, self-esteem issues, codependence, emotional regulation issues, interpersonal distress, and a general feeling of “stuckness.” I am a Certified EMDR Therapist, an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, and I'm currently a Facilitator in Training with the EMDR Institute. I have completed advanced EMDR trainings including the EMDR-Sandtray Protocol, EMDR for Chronic Pain, and EMDR protocols for attachment and dissociative disorders.

Education & Experience

I am Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and graduated from Pepperdine University in 2012 with a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy. My undergraduate degree was obtained at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am passionately committed to continued learning, and increasing my skillset as a clinician. I'm trained in ego state therapy, IFS Level 1, clinical hypnosis, and Deep Brain Reorienting. I am a member of the International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation (ISSTD) and regularly attend trainings through them on complex trauma and the treatment of dissociative disorders. I hold an ISSTD Advanced Certificate in Complex Trauma and Dissociation. In addition to the love of learning, I'm passionate about therapist training, mentorship, supervision & consultation. I'm an adjunct professor at Pacific Oaks College in San Jose, teaching in the areas of complex trauma and family systems.
