I am licensed in California as Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC51116), and I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2004. I graduated from New College of California with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, which had an emphasis on feminist thought, critical theory, & social justice. I completed a three year, Post-Graduate Psychotherapy Training program at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley, and I have experience working in a variety of clinics settings, as outlined below. I have undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Spanish. I am also a Certified Yoga Teacher, having completed a 200 hour training intensive at The Mindful Body in San Francisco.
I frequently seek professional development opportunities in my field & across disciplines, and regularly engage in consultation with respected colleagues. These endeavors sharpen the clarity of the socio-cultural lens through which I aim to practice and help me to stay curious about the ways that I can improve, deepen, and stay creative in my work with people.
