EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I'm a neurodivergent trauma specialist who provides compassionate, holistic, and individualized therapy that honors and celebrates the diverse experiences and needs of every client I work with. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space that fosters healing, growth, resilience, and self-acceptance. I'm committed to staying informed about the latest research and techniques in the field of therapy and continuously evolving my practice to best meet the needs of my clients. My ultimate goal is to empower clients to lead more fulfilled and meaningful lives. Please note that my licensure allows me to work only with people in the state of California.

Education & Experience

I earned my Master of Science in Counseling with an emphasis in clinical mental health from California State University, Fullerton in 2017. I was trained in EMDR that same year and have been successfully using it with clients ever since. I also have personal experience and specialized training in complex trauma treatment, neurodivergent issues (ADHD, autism, HSP, giftedness), grief, and Intuitive Eating / Health at Every Size (HAES).

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I am affiliated with the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), EMDRIA, and Yoga Alliance.
