Welcome to my psychotherapy practice. I work with adults and families in San Francisco through The Marina Counseling Center. My specializations are in complex trauma and family therapy, especially with immigrant and cross-cultural families.
I also work at the Homeless Children's Network as a Child & Family Therapist and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant. In the past, I worked as a therapist at an outpatient clinic for adults, a group counselor at a nature-based mindfulness program for children, and as a counselor with survivors of sexual and domestic violence.
In my practice, I center the experiences of Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPOC), who have been underestimated and marginalized by society.
Trauma, decontextualized in a person over time, looks like personality. Trauma, decontextualized in a family, looks like family traits. Trauma, decontextualized in a people, looks like culture... When we heal our own trauma, individually and collectively, we don’t just heal our bodies. By refusing to pass on the trauma we inherited, we help heal the world.
