As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate, I specialize in individual therapy for adults, bringing over a decade of diverse experience to my practice. I hold an MSSW in Social Work from The University of Texas at Arlington, and a BA in Sociology from UC Santa Cruz. I'm an active member of NASW, Washington chapter.

My person-centered approach provides a safe, non-judgmental space for you to navigate life's challenges. I believe you hold the keys to learning more your life and I will partner with you to offer guidance, support, and empowerment. I tailor therapeutic techniques to your unique needs, drawing from CBT, ACT, motivational interviewing, humanistic therapy, solutions-focused brief, and family systems therapy. My practice is rooted in social justice and anti-racism, with a focus on trauma-informed care.

I'm dedicated to empowering you, enhancing self-awareness, and cultivating resilience on your path to mental well-being. I look forward to joining you on your journey!
