My style is curious, creative, and collaborative. Together, we can think about how your experiences have impacted you and get to know all the parts of your inner world. Through this process, we can uncover what is contributing to feeling stuck and encourage more self-acceptance and wholeness.
I earned my M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University and am currently registered as an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist, #132951, and supervised by Gaea Woods, LMFT #117978. I have received in-depth training in object relations theory, intersubjective, relational, and psychodynamic psychotherapy from Valley Community Counseling Clinic. While at VCCC I worked with a broad range of clients with concerns including; anxiety, depression, obsessions/compulsions, anger management, substance use, trauma, disordered eating, grief/loss, relationship concerns, personality disorders, and family conflict. I participated in a process and reading group addressing issues of culture, identity, and intersectionality in psychoanalysis.
Previously I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from California Institute of the Arts where I studied studio art and critical studies. I went on to work in the arts in various roles for 10 years prior to becoming a therapist. I bring an awareness of the creative process and critical thinking to my work as a therapist.
