I am a culturally competent licensed marriage family therapist with 25+ years experience providing in-person and telehealth psychotherapy to adults, teens, families, and groups. I specialize in working with marginalized populations including LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, immigrant, and forensic. I have extensive training in crisis management and trauma-informed treatment. Other specialty areas include substance abuse, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, caretakers, life transitions, relationship conflicts, and disaster mental health. Primary treatment modalities include CBT, attachment, existential, and mindfulness based practices including DBT. My goal is to support my clients in developing healthy and secure connections with others and resilience skills. I earned my Masters in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in 1999 and MFT license in 2003. Additionally, I have 20+ years of leadership experience with team culture development, clinical supervision, and program development/management. Leadership positions include clinical supervision with John F. Kennedy University, Axis Community Health, and Asian Community Mental Health Services. I have held many positions on the Board of Directors of East Bay CAMFT. I am a living kidney donor and I participate in advocacy around living organ donation. I enjoy spending quality time with the special people in my life including adventures with my canine son Sampson.
