“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.”

A BIT ABOUT THERAPY

Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing


Psychotherapy is a journey. This journey can take as little as six weeks, or may be ongoing for years. It all depends on what you want to get out of it. How it works is that I meet with you for an hour, usually once per week, to help guide you along your way. I won’t be dictating to you what I think is the best way for you to live your life. You already know more about that than anyone else. My job is to give you the tools and support you need to get to the place you want. 

    This journey won’t always be easy. Working through emotional blocks can be difficult but the results are worth it, and are often life-changing.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in a home with a father suffering from trauma incurred during the Vietnam War, as well as a mother who is a therapist herself. Because of this, I have had direct experience to both mental health issues and therapy as a treatment since my earliest days. I decided I wanted to follow in my mother's footsteps and take up a career in healing others.

I obtained my bachelor's in psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Shortly after graduating, I took up multiple jobs in the mental health field, most notably as a counselor for homeless veterans. I then attended graduate school, getting my Master's Degree in Counseling from Palo Alto University in 2018.

I am an AMFT (#112922) working under the supervision of James M. Hollomon, LMFT (#37788), located at 212 May Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA, 95060.


Outside of my work life, I'm something of a geek, enjoying painting models and running roleplaying groups.
