I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist offering in-person and telehealth therapy in Newport Beach, California.

My journey in clinical work began while in undergrad at the University of Southern California, working in Applied Behavioral Analysis as a behavioral therapist helping children and families with neurodevelopmental disorders. While in my Masters in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University, I began gaining my hours towards licensure in an outpatient substance use treatment center.

Currently, I am working at a non-profit community mental health center in Newport Beach and offer therapy for children, individuals, couples, and families. My areas of interest include chronic health conditions, neurodevelopmental disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, adult ADHD, life transitions, relationship issues, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, substance use, and grief. If you or someone you know may be a good fit, please reach out. I look forward to hearing from you!
