I am a licensed psychotherapist located in Oakland, California. I am a native to the area and have over 15 years experience working in mental health and the public sector. My graduate studies are from the University of Southern California. The framework for my practice is grounded in my personal belief that some of the most challenging times in life can bring about positive change, growth, and transformation. I’m a empathetic, non-judgmental, compassionate, and culturally sensitive psychotherapist who strives to empower my clients.
