Since completing my doctorate and master’s degrees in Clinical Psychology, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of patient backgrounds. When considering my patients, I take a holistic approach and assess from a bio/psycho/social/spiritual point-of-view. I believe assessing the whole patient is the best way to understand underlying problems/symptoms related to psychopathology. Additionally, and most importantly, empathy, trust, a therapeutic allianceand rapport is of utmost concern; I want your therapy hour to be useful, beneficial, and enjoyable.

I completed my PsyD and MA in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University – San Francisco in 2016. I am currently licensed to practice as an LPCC in California and LPC in Oregon. Also, in 2009, I completed a master’s degree in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University in Portland, OR. My areas of treatment include:

Substance use
Adjustment Disorder
Spiritual/Religious conflict
Poor Sleep/Insomnia
LGBTQ issues
HIV related issues
Medication adherence
