  • I received a masters degree in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Gerontology at San Francisco State University. I also received a certificate in LGBT mental health and human services as well as a certificate in post-combat behavioral health (veteran mental health) at Alliant International University. I have also completed basic and advanced training in attachment-focused EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing), and regularly pursue continuing education and consultation related to trauma recovery and healing. Prior to pursuing a career in mental health, I earned degrees in English and Comparative Literature at San Francisco State University and University of California, Santa Barbara.

    I completed a clinical internship at the Stonewall Project (a program of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation), a harm reduction-based substance use program providing culturally sensitive treatment for gay, bi, and transmen, and other men who have sex with men. I was also a grief counselor at Circle of Care, providing trauma-informed grief counseling for children and families coping with death and/or life-threatening illnesses. I have volunteered for the Shanti Project providing emotional and practical support for someone living with a chronic life-threatening illness. I also was a clinical case manager at Episcopal Community Services, offering support services for individual who were formerly homeless as well as an overnight therapist at a short-term, residential crisis stabilization program at HealthRIGHT360. I also worked as a Shadow Aide for Whole Children Psychological Services.

    In addition to private practice, I am also a residential therapist at a dual diagnosis substance use treatment program.
