About Me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in the treatment of trauma. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Masters degree from the University of San Diego. I have had the privilege of working with trauma survivors since becoming a therapist. I am humbled every day by this work and I am honored to be able to witness each person's unique healing journey. I am passionate about the treatment of trauma and believe it is important to create trauma-informed and responsive organizational frameworks within agencies to ensure trauma survivors can receive quality clinical care while feeling safe, supported, and cared for.
