(she/her/they)

Hello and welcome. Congrats on being here and seeking healing. Therapy is a great way to create positive change in your life. Here is a little bit more about me and the way I work, as well as my personal values. 


I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and have been in practice as a psychotherapist for 8+ years. I am queer, feminist and a former community organizer. I believe that black lives matter, trans lives matter and sex work is work. I am extremely broad-minded and affirming to various sub-cultures and communities IE: poly, kink. I am social, kind, imperfect, experimentative and I've lived in LA for a little over 12 years. I tell you this, to assure you that I can (and do) relate to many of my clients experiences. 


Areas of Expertise Include: Anxiety, Anxious Attachment, Relationships, Creatives, Queer Experiences, Deprogramming (from fundamentalist religions, cults, MLM's), Grief, Gaslighting and Codependency


I am currently only accepting women and LGBT clients, individually (one-on-one). I believe that seeing each other weekly, is the best way to achieve significant, long term improvement. I was previously employed by Antioch University Counseling center and now work in a private practice setting in Los Angeles virtually. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California.
