I'm a graduate student studying community mental health and clinical psychotherapy at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
I approach therapy holistically, integrating the mind, body, and spirit. I believe that we are shaped by our early relationships, the sociocultural context we find ourselves in, and our collective histories. Our suffering comes from resilience and survival strategies that may not serve us fully. Growth comes from increasing our self-awareness, accepting our different parts, and practicing new ways of being, relating, and knowing that align with our deepest values, intentions, and desires.
Currently I'm an MFT Trainee at The Clinic Without Walls, a free clinic for underserved communities in San Francisco. I'm also a peer counselor, supporting survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence, and human trafficking. Before this path, I spent 10 years working in the tech industry doing marketing and product development.
