Welcome! Thank you for your interest in my clinical practice. I believe in our shared ability to co-create meaning that will lead to greater insight, and ultimately positive changes in your life. Your understanding about your life and everything that shapes your perspective will be central to our work together. I work relationally and utilize a culturally-inclusive approach to address the complex realities of your relationship to race, gender, culture, and sexuality. I value empathy and mindfulness as therapeutic tools that enhance awareness, and ultimately positive change.​

I navigate clinical work by blending creative and tailored approaches that enhance well-being. Promoting social justice through trauma-informed care is the core of my intention for clinical practice. By paying close attention to emotional, behavioral and communication patterns, I help clients discover enhanced strategies that support healthier living.

To reduce barriers to accessing therapy, I offer selective Telehealth services (online sessions). In-person sessions are available in my Oakland and Walnut Creek offices. To set up a complimentary 10-15 minute phone appointment, you can reach me at 510-332-4130. Also, you are free to contact me at rainsoundllc@ gmail.com
