Focus Area: Clinical Social Work

Licensed in: California, Idaho, Oregon, Washington

My services are inclusive meaning I work with everyone and exclude nobody. Those who feel they cannot be themselves due to judgments or expectations of others are offered an empathic and understanding environment to explore what they really want in life. I meet you where you are and YOU decide the direction in which your life may lead. My hope is that you may live life joyfully while becoming the most authentic version of yourself.

About Me

I have extensive experience providing individual, couple, family, and group counseling services. I have over 15 years of experience providing competent care to the gender queer community and am certified by WPATH to provide surgical readiness evaluations for gender affirming care. I offer culturally competent care to the BIPOC and Latino community. I utilize integrative and holistic approaches to mental health therapy as well as various therapeutic modalities. I provide EMDR and Brainspotting and am a WPATH GEI SOC8 Certified Provider.
