My Approach to Helping

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (supervised by Maureen Johnston #31776) in my hometown of San Jose, CA. I attained both my bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling from John F. Kennedy University. Prior to entering the field of psychotherapy, I spent 12 years in Corporate Marketing, Communications, and HR project management. I have personal experience with stressors and issues impacting the corporate workforce, especially in Silicon Valley. My knowledge of the business world and psychotherapy allows me to connect with working professionals and couples who find it difficult to balance work and family life while sustaining their mental health.

Within the field of psychotherapy, I have experience working in clinical and educational settings under the supervision of a highly skilled Satir-based professional where I managed a full caseload including gender & sexual identity, addiction, personality disorders, sexual trauma, divorceseparation, anxietydepression, griefloss, women's issues, men's issues, spirituality, couple's communication, pre-marital counseling, and general life transitions.

I am especially passionate about supporting individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing gender transition. This is a unique journey where psychotherapy can assist with supporting, exploring, encouraging, and providing additional resources during all stages of the transition process. I am personally associated with the LGBTQ community, most specifically the transgender experience.

I helped develop a new PFLAG chapter in Beaverton, Oregon in 2015 which is proudly going strong. I am also an active transgender ally at a local Catholic high school, a facilitator for a transgender teen support group, a public speaker on the topic of "the transgender spiritual journey," and an LGBTQ board member at a global HR company. I am passionate about being a voice for transgender people in professional environments who are hesitant about coming out.
