My identity as a licensed professional clinical counselor is rooted in my experience that people can and do recover. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and have been practicing therapy since 2011. In addition to my private practice, I currently work as a clinical supervisor for people training to be therapists at two community mental health clinics. I am an Encinitas local, a wife, and a mother.

I am licensed under the California Board of Behavioral Sciences as LPCC #2071 to provide counseling and psychotherapy, including individual and family therapy. I am a National Board Certified Counselor. You can view my employment experience on LinkedIn.

I earned my B.A. in Chemistry from Brown University. In 2012, I graduated with my M.A. in Counseling with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from University of San Diego. I completed my Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with an emphasis in depth psychotherapy from Pacifica Graduate Institute in March of 2018.

Training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): I have completed the basic training requirements with the Trauma Recovery Humanitarian Assistance Programs, which is recognized by EMDRIA. This level of training means that I have completed both Part 1 and Part 2 workshops (for a combined total of 40 hours of training) and 10 hours of consultation regarding my clinical practice of EMDR.
