I respect the courage and vulnerability it takes to reach out for support, to explore your wounds and to embrace the challenges of your life. I am honored to be a part of your journey and consider it a privilege to hold space for meaningful change with you as my client. I focus on empowering my clients in a safe and supportive environment where you feel valued and heard.
My experience includes working for a behavioral health agency supporting adults with dual diagnoses in a residential setting, as a mental health therapist counseling students for general and special education for both elementary and middle schools, as well as working in private practice. I also have had the opportunity to serve as a part of a crisis response team serving local Bay Area schools during times of crisis. Currently, I am focusing my time in private practice, where I have been supporting clients for 6 years.
As a therapist, my approach is friendly, compassionate and non-judgmental. I use evidence-based, integrative and holistic interventions to support people with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, stress, and trauma-related challenges. Our sessions are collaborative and often include a bio-psycho-social approach where we can explore overall health and wellbeing; including physical connections to emotional problems.
I hold a California Marriage and Family Therapist License with the Board of Behavioral Sciences. I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from John F. Kennedy University and my BA in Psychology from San Francisco State University.
As well as providing therapy, I am excited to offer education on how to incorporate essential oils to improve your health in a natural way. I serve as the essential oil educator at Nugent, where I teach classes and offer individual time for people looking for holistic health support. I am passionate about natural wellness and love helping people in finding safe and effective solutions to their physical and emotional needs.
I look forward to connecting with you. Please call (408) 458-5812 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, providing me with your name, phone number, and a brief description of the concern or issues and how I may be of service to you. My typical response time is within 24 hours.
