I received my masters in clinical psychology specializing in LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning) from Antioch University in Los Angeles. Working with the LGBTQ communities is deeply personal to me. As a member of the community, I have greatly benefited from this approach and know first hand how it works to transform shame and foster empowerment.
I then went on to earn my doctorate in clinical psychology with an emphasis in multi-cultural and community psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles.
Before moving to Sacramento, I was the Lead Clinical Supervisor at Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services-Suicide Prevention Center developing and facilitating support groups for Suicide Attempt Survivors and providing suicide prevention trainings all across the United States and Canada.
My work as a therapist is to provide a safe space for all my clients to experience self-acceptance and transformation.
