About Me

I am a licensed therapist working in the city of Riverside. My practice specializes in trauma focused therapies and working with first responders and their families. I contract with The Counseling Team International (TCTI) teaching peer support and resilience courses. I am a supervisor for therapists working on their hours for licensure and teach at California Baptist University.

Education & Experience

I have a Master of Science in Psychology from California Baptist University and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Southern California. I have worked in both Christian and secular settings and served almost 8 years as a Deputy Sheriff with the County of Riverside. I volunteered as an advocate with Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center (RARCC) and as a team member and supervisor for Rebirth Homes, a recovery program for victims of human trafficking.
