Hi, I am a Licensed clinician with over 8 years of experience as a therapist, and have worked in family programs and care all around the world for over 15 years. I am also a graduate school educator as a professor at Fuller School of Psychology teaching on Clinical Foundations and Vulnerable Family Systems. My specialty is working with families and individuals through challenging life transitions, cultural differences and traumatic experiences. I deeply believe that therapy is a partnership and that healing and wellness come from a collective effort. I am so pleased that you have signed up for some support and care, you deserve it. Taking that first step takes courage and I look forward to meeting with you and hearing about how I can best support you.
