​About Me

 

I began my clinical training at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy, affiliated with California Institute of Integral Studies where I received my M.A. in Counseling Psychology. I went on to build my clinical experience and training through Marina Counseling Center where I continued to work with adults, couples and adolescents. My work throughout this time has been informed by ongoing personal development and education in the practice and principles of Formative Psychology™.



In addition to my private practice, I also work as a therapist at Galileo High School through Richmond Area Multi-Services. I have 10 years of experience working with at-risk adolescents and their families providing crisis assessment and management, case management, individual therapy, and consultation.
