Are you worried your therapist will judge you? I welcome clients of all ages, genders, ethnicities, sexualities, and life circumstances. I am LGBTQ+, poly, and kink friendly. I support all sexual relationships as long as they are safe and consensual. 

Do you feel overwhelmed with all the demands of life? It’s hard to balance friends, family, work, school, and finances, while still making time for ourselves. Sometimes, we are stretched so thin making sure we are there for others, that we forget to take care of ourselves. 

I offer a safe space to discuss your life, goals, dreams, and aspirations. I value you as a person, and want to help guide you toward the life you desire. I understand what you are going through, and will offer ideas to help you get through the tough times. I’d love to talk to you to discuss how I can help. Please visit my website or give me a call and I can share more about how I can support you: (916) 502-1727.

Q What are your qualifications?

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from University of California, Santa Barbara. I then earned my Master's Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from University of San Francisco. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California.

Q Do you take insurance?

I'm not in network with insurance companies, but you can call your insurance and ask if they reimburse "out of network" providers. While insurance may save you money, it also requires me to diagnose you, which will be on your medical record. It also takes a lot of my time to negotiate with them, fill out forms, and complete billing. This gives me less time to do what I really love, which is helping people.
