About My Clients

All kinds of people have experienced the consequences of oppression and shame and as a result have been held back from realizing their full potential. Therapy has the ability to unleash that potential and empower those merely surviving to thriving. No matter where we come from or how we identify, we all know pain and suffering. An empowerment approach to therapy seeks to embolden anyone who has ever felt less than or not worthy so that they can live a life of authenticity and purpose.

My Background and Approach

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.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy is at its best when it is truly collaborative. Together we can work on problem solving current challenges, learning new tools to understand and manage emotions and negative thinking, improve communication and relationship skills, increase self-esteem and confidence, grieving painful loss, and increasing self-awareness and acceptance. Contact me and we will arrange the initial evaluation session. We will discuss your goals for therapy and you will get a sense of how we work together. You have already learned ways to tolerate life's painful challenges. Take the next step from surviving to thriving!
