I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT#129673). I grew up in the Bay Area, and have spent much of life working in different communities in the area, though I spent over a year living and teaching in other countries. Personally, I've navigated my own highs and lows and those of my family and communities having grown up with grief and loss, living in the Bay Area in a blended, multicultural, and multilingual family. I bring to the table personal as well as professional experiences supporting others with medical challenges, family members' illnesses, grief, loss, blended and mixed families, caregiving, learning differences, neurodivergence (ADHD in particular), career changes, and other big life transitions. I have been grateful to have had the support of some wonderful people in my life and know how much a difference it can make to have a caring person to talk to and offering support. Becoming a therapist is part of me wanting to give back.
I received my Master's degree from Saint Mary's College of California. I also hold a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) from Trinity College and additional Certification in Spiritual Counseling. I have a background in art, with my B.A. in the History of Art and Visual Culture, with a Minor in Education and Teaching from University of California, Santa Cruz. This background gives me a unique perspective of the impact of culture and media on our social and psychological development. I received valuable mentorship from Rebekah Balboni, LCSW, a well-respected therapist, during my private practice internship in Alameda, CA, before receiving my MFT license in 2021 and continue to collaborate with her.
I specialize in providing support for adolescents, young adults, adults and families. I have worked for over 14 years with children and families in various multicultural settings to assist them in learning healthy communication and coping skills, reducing stress, building self-esteem, and helping them tap into their inner strengths and creativity. Ten of these years have been more specifically focused in the mental health field. I integrate different therapeutic theories and practices, including person-centered, mindfulness, expressive arts therapy, attachment theory, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and trauma-informed therapies. I tailor my approach to each client, their cultural background, and their personal goals for improving their life. I love supporting people as they create lives they enjoy and learn to express themselves creatively and authentically.
Additional interests of mine include complementary and traditional medicine, nutrition and it's evidenced-based relationship to mental health, indigenous healing practices and spirituality. If these are things that you would be interested in discussing and integrating into our work together, I welcome you to share your experiences and beliefs.
I love to travel and have lived on 2 different continents outside of North America.
As much as I am a bit of a nutrition and complementary medicine nerd, I think pizza should be it's own food group.
