Why I do this work

I come to this work by way of my own inner healing journey. Having experienced firsthand the profound growth and healing that can come from a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, I believe wholeheartedly that change occurs when we have space to explore, understand, and accept all parts of ourselves. Working in this field allows me the great honor of partnering with others on their path of self-exploration, learning to be curious about our inner experiences, and cultivating trust in ourselves along the way.​

The best part of my job

The best part of my job is witnessing someone grow their awareness and compassion for themselves and all that they've endured. I love seeing someone learn to be a loving parent to themselves, cultivating forgiveness for themselves and those who have disappointed or harmed them along the way.

How I spend my free time

Hiking in the Berkeley and Oakland hills, geeking out over local produce, and swapping favorite cat memes with friends and family.
