About Me


pronouns: she/her/hers

Welcome to my practice. I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in the state of California (#86545) offering individual psychotherapy, psychedelic integration therapy, and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). My expertise is in queer and intersecting identities, queer relationships, depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have worked extensively with LGBTQIA+ populations and communities of color, both of which I identify with. My social justice oriented, collaborative, explorative, and nonjudgmental approach to therapy strives creates a safe and supportive therapeutic environment.


Outside of my therapy practice, I work as an organizational development consultant to nonprofit organizations primarily focusing on community mental health. I value working to uplift underserved and marginalized communities by working to ensure access to healthcare and other vital services that promote equity, equality, and well-being.
