I'm an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist at a group practice called Clarity Mindful Living. I also work at the University of California, San Francisco as a clinical social worker, and I’ve been at UCSF for 8 years working on research studies focused on improving engagement in care for people living with HIV.
While I have a passion for helping the LGBTQ community, I work with a diverse range of clients. In my clinical experience and in my work as a researcher at UCSF, I help clients address grief/loss, intimacy issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, and HIV-related issues.
In my clinical experience and in my seven years as a researcher at UCSF, I help clients address a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, childhood trauma and HIV-related issues. I also provide counseling for couples experiencing conflict, communication problems or intimacy issues by helping them identify and change unhealthy patterns in their relationship and better express their unmet needs for affection, understanding and love.
I offer my clients a strong and grounded presence, and I have a highly interactive and straightforward style. My clients appreciate that we engage in an open, honest and, at times, candid dialogue and truly work together as a team to solve their problems.
I grew up in North Carolina and moved to San Francisco in 2005. I received my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology in 2015 from the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. My education was holistic, strength-based and grounded in social justice. As a result, I'm committed to addressing the impact of larger social issues on the mental health of my clients.
