About Me

I often work with individuals who want to better understand themselves and their relationships, improve management of difficult emotions, rediscover joy, and redefine themselves from painful life experiences. Learning about the mind-body connection, unpacking problematic beliefs of self and/or others, developing effective communication tools, and living authentically are common themes in my practice. I offer a therapeutic approach that is integrative in nature and unique to each individual based on their needs and desired goals.

Education & Experience

I completed my graduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 2012. I'm trained in EMDR by the EMDR Institute, Inc. Additionally, I'm trained in CBT, Mindfulness Based Interventions, and I utilize various other modalities in my practice. I'm also a Certified Yoga Teacher recognized by Yoga Alliance.
