My Approach

I work with children, teens, and adults through Animal-Assisted Therapy along with other evidence-based practices in order to maximize mental wellbeing and emotional regulation. I specialize in working with individuals with anxiety, or those who identify as "highly sensitive people". I utilize Animal-Assisted Therapy and a number of evidence-based orientations designed based on each individual client's needs and goals. You are the expert in your own experience. I am here to help you reach maximum mental wellbeing. Therapy is a collaborative process and should always be strengths-based and culturally sensitive.

My Background

I received my Master's degree in Psychology Marriage and Family Therapy from Palo Alto University in 2014. While working towards my Master’s degree, I completed my practicum at StarVista, providing group therapy in schools to children whose parent’s suffered from substance abuse. I then transitioned to community-based wraparound work at Seneca Family of Agencies in San Francisco, working with children, teens, and families. I also spent several years working as a therapist in San Francisco Charter Schools providing individual and group treatment to children displaying behavioral and mental health needs in the classroom. I moved to Oregon in 2018, at which point I joined Firefly Institute. Firefly is where I was trained in play therapy and received my Animal-Assisted Human Health Certificate for utilizing an animal in therapeutic practice.
