I graduated from Santa Clara University in 2011 with a Masters in Counseling Psychology. As a post-graduate intern I worked on the Peninsula in two non-profit agencies providing therapy to individuals, couples, groups and families. As a LMFT I had to complete 3000 hours to become licensed. It was a labor of love and you will see the results. I am interested in mindfulness, and stress reduction. I have had a meditation practice for twenty years. You can learn to be in the moment with your feelings and not run away from them or push them down. By sitting with those feelings, you can decrease suffering. As an educator and now as a therapist I bring you a vast range of experience. I will work along side you to help you heal.

I have been a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists since 2011 and a member my local Santa Clara Valley chapter since 2012. Additionally, I was an adjunct faculty member at Santa Clara University leading graduate students through a group therapy experience. Groups are a passion of mine. Groups help us heal in interpersonal relationships. We are all in some form of relationships so call more to learn more...650-539-4325.

I grew up in the south and attended college there. I received a degree in Theatre Arts and I minored in Education. After graduation I taught theatre in four of the five boroughs in New York City and did some acting along the way. I also taught preschool and pursued a Masters in Early Childhood Education. After years of parent meetings that seemed a lot like therapy, I realized psychology was the career I had been seeking all those years. I love the work I get to be a part of as a therapist. When you work with me you get the benefit of my diverse professional experience which began almost twenty years ago.
