I take a feminist and solution-focused approach to therapy that integrates all aspects of your identity, cultural background, and life experiences. I firmly believe that for any change, solution, or strategy to be effective, we must generate it collaboratively. I believe change is constantly happening, and our job in counseling is to harness that change in the direction that helps you attain your goals. I also believe that it is important to continuously monitor our progress towards your goals and to adjust our work accordingly. I integrate CBT, DBT, ACT, and other evidence-based approaches into my work as relevant to your needs.

I received my PhD in Counseling Psychology from Lehigh University (APA Accredited). I completed my pre- and post-doctoral training at Counseling and Psychological Services at UC Berkeley. I also completed training at Kutztown University and Lafayette College's Counseling Centers. After obtaining my degree, I have worked on a contract basis providing counseling to International Students at UC Berkeley. I also currently provide supervision to trainees at the Pacific Center for Human Growth in Berkeley, CA.
I am highly involved in the wider professional community of psychology. In addition to my practice, I am a full-time professor of counseling at San Francisco State University. I am also actively involved in several national and regional psychological organizations and am a frequent presenter on topics such as LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy, Social Justice in Counseling, and Supervision and Training issues at national conferences. What this means for you is that I am committed to learning the most innovative approaches in our field and I take time to learn and integrate the most recent research. You are welcome to view my full vita here if you are interested.


Collaborative, empowering,

We will work together to help you realize your goals.
