I'm a San Diego native enjoying the Arizona sun for over 20 years. I love loud music, chips & salsa, and fishing. I also enjoy silence and a good nap!

I am not licensed by the State of Arizona as a mental health professional. I do not provide psychotherapy. I do not make psychiatric diagnoses nor offer medical advice. I recognize certain needs may be outside of my scope of training and expertise. Therefore, it may be necessary to collaborate and/or refer to other qualified professionals.
My goal is that every client feels welcomed, loved, and accepted. I promise to be patient and truthful. Our time together should feel casual, comfortable, and above all else, it should feel safe.
My practice skills are trauma-informed and integrate theology, psychology, & neurobiology.
