Chat with me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with 6 years of clinical experience. I have worked in the nonprofit and county sector and have recently started my own private practice this year. I specialize in working with anxiety disorders such as OCD and social anxiety disorder. I also specialize in utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy. Personally, I have struggled with anxiety in my own life and feel that I can relate to clients on a personal level. On personal time I am a huge sports fan and support Bay Area teams. I enjoy working out in my spare time, being outdoors, reading books, trying new restaurants, and spending time with friends and family.
