About

Stressful encounters, complex life experience, academic stressors and more, can often cause college students, teens, and children to struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, inadequacy, body image issues, and negative self-talk. In my career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have had the opportunity to work closely with clients struggling with these kinds of challenges both at school and at home. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.
Before founding my own practice, I worked with gifted teens and children at Beacon Wellness Team, Campbell Union School District, and The Harker School in Saratoga. I hold a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. My goal is to empower all clients and families to live their best life, one step at a time.
I use a strength-based modality, play therapy, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), and other techniques when working with my clients. These techniques and approaches have proven successful in helping enable my clients to manage and moderate their experiences on their own.
