About Me

I’m a contemplative trauma-focused psychotherapist based in California. I have a deep commitment to nurturing the innate capacity of the mind to change, adapt, and heal. My clients tend to be highly motivated and introspective. They’ve often done a lot of internal work already, but have a sense that there is something deeper that is unresolved. They're looking for someone they can trust as they navigate their journey toward healing and growth after tough times.

Education & Experience

Throughout my life, I have explored identity, meaning, and conflict in a variety of contexts—how we cultivate a sense of ourselves and our place in the world, and how we heal when things don’t go well. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I dedicated years to environmental conflict resolution and international peacebuilding. Through that work, I derived a complex understanding of culture and identity that greatly influences my approach as a psychotherapist. I recieved a MSc in Conflict Analysis from George Mason University and a MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. I was trained in EMDR by the Institute for Creative Mindfulness. I also utilize Somatic Experiencing and Mindfulness interventions in my practice to help people learn to self-regulate and become familiar with their nervous system-- this empowers clients to get to know themselves on a deeper level and reflect in between sessions.
