Professional statement


I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in German from California State University, Monterey Bay, along with my M.A. and Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the APA-Accredited program at the California School of Professional Psychology, Los Angeles. I have experience with individuals of many diverse populations across the lifespan and my training experience has focused on cultural diversity in health psychology, along with conceptualizing how the mind/body connection can inform our behaviors, psychological processes, and worldviews.

Therapeutic Approach:

The road to healing and insight can be complex at times, therefore my approach to therapy is collaborative and creative in nature. I work from a solution-focused and biopsychosocial lens, integrating interventions that are tailored to each unique client. This approach assists in guiding each client toward increased awareness of emotions and life experiences that may contribute to their current situation. Therapy is a process rooted in self-care, patience, and compassion. I hope to provide a comfortable, empathic, culturally sensitive, and secure environment for you to hone in on your strengths while reaching your therapeutic goals.
