While the focus of my work is on helping clients gain greater insight into, and awareness of, who they are, for those that are curious I’ll take a few moments to provide a little more information about myself…
I truly feel privileged to do the work that I do. Many people have asked me, “How can you do that job?” I respond by telling them how honored I feel to even sit in the same room with people who are willing to take risks, to share things that they have difficulty sharing with anyone (even themselves), and to do the work necessary to make their relationships and their lives the best they can possibly be!
The counseling and psychotherapy services I provide are centered on helping individual adults and couples increase their self-awareness and insight so they can resolve feelings of anxiety and depression, improve their relationships, and increase their self-confidence and self-esteem. I have extensive experience helping people cope with and overcome anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder (manic depression), and also offer parent counseling and individual life coaching services.
After receiving my B.A. in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University University, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with an M.S. in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in 2018.
I have been under the direct supervision of Don Hadlock at Process Therapy Institute in Campbell, California, in order to provide a confidential setting in which clients feel safe, valued, and supported.
In addition to my practice, I have been a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists since 2016. This organization provides continuing education workshops, information on the latest psychotherapy models and techniques, as well as consulting and networking opportunities for therapists throughout California.
I have also provided pro-bono parenting workshops at the VA in Menlo Park, have contributed to local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) organizations, and am a Deacon with the United Methodist Church.
