Welcome.

I am a Licensed Psychologist and Certified EMDR Therapist with more than 15 years of experience providing training and mental health services. My work as a clinician, educator/trainer, writer, and advocate are informed by social justice and  cultural awareness and humility.

I believe that emotional wellness is influenced by both internal and contextual, sociocultural factors. The two questions that guide my work in all regards are, “How can I be of service?” and “What can I do to promote healing for individuals and communities?”

My specialties include:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma, EMDR therapy
  • Significant life transitions
  • Self-esteem, breaking unhelpful patterns of thinking about and relating to oneself
  • Eating disorders, body image, body acceptance
  • Compulsive behaviors, substance abuse, multiple addictions, sobriety, and recovery
  • Codependency and co-addiction
  • Gender identity, transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) communities
  • Sexuality and sexual orientation issues (heterosexual and LGBTQQI)
  • Relationships, dating, and intimacy
  • Diverse sexualities and relationships, polyamory, and BDSM
  • Cultural identity concerns, immigration, and acculturation
  • Creativity, artists, and performers
  • Students, graduate students, and therapists in training
