About My Clients

My specialties include: LGBTQ+, teens, adults, people of color, anxiety, trauma, and depression.

My Background and Approach

As someone who has experience being on the other side of this process, I know how important it is to find a therapist you feel safe and heard by. I earned my M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chapman University. During my time at Chapman, I worked as a therapist in Chapmanā€™s community mental health clinic seeing individuals, couples and families from various backgrounds. In addition, my clinical experience includes a year of training at the LGBTQ Center of Long Beach. Social justice is embedded in my work and I am passionate about affirmative, trauma-informed care. I have an extensive background in serving queer, transgender and non-binary people of color and I aim to create a secure and compassionate space for healing marginalized communities. My approach to therapy focuses on an attachment and internal family systems lens, emphasizing the humanness of experiences and growth in discovering parts of the self.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy is political and I know that the things that are happening in the outside world come into the room with us. I am passionate about anti-racism work and the liberation of queer and trans identities.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
