About Me

I am dedicated to the holistic healing of the mind, body, and soul. With approximately 15 years of experience, I make a commitment to collaborate and support each one of my clients as they overcome barriers.

The journey of life isn’t always an easy one and sometimes we need some help to get through the unexpected struggles that get in the way of living a happy and healthy life. As therapists, we are blessed by our client’s willingness to trust and share openly about their lives.  I am honored by the opportunity to facilitate the healing for each of my clients.  Many people describe me as warm, understanding, and down to earth. I pride myself on integrity, commitment, and honesty.

In addition to my private practice, I am the Assistant Clinical Professor and Director of the Counseling and Forensic Psychology Graduate Program at Holy Names University in Oakland, CA. I also have the privilege of teaching and consulting for a number of higher education institutions. I come from a liberation and social justice lens when working with trauma associated with systemic oppression, social inequity, community violence, abuse and attachment, juvenile justice, and grief and loss. As an advocate for quality holistic, innovative, and accessible healthcare for all, I am also a member of the UCSF Integrative Health and Medicine Committee to integrate holistic and nontraditional forms of wellness and medicine into our healthcare to offer alternatives and culturally accommodating services.
