I specialize in psychotherapy for children, teens, and families. I support children and teens facing depression, anxiety, risky behaviors, academic challenges, low self-esteem, and identity issues. I help with parent-child conflicts while providing parenting support to strengthen family relationships. I provide compassionate support to children with developmental disabilities and their families. I utilize evidenced-based treatment modalities, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), and family systems therapy (FST). I work collaboratively and empathetically with clients to encourage personal growth and allow clients to thrive.
I received my BA in Psychology from University of California, Santa Cruz. I was then awarded my doctorate degree in clinical psychology from American School of Professional Psychology, a program with full accreditation from the American Psychological Association (APA). I completed training programs at various medical and community health facilities including Caminar for Mental Health, Portia Bell Hume Behavioral Health and Training Center, and Kaiser Permanente.
