Meet the Founders
After nearly a decade of experience as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and registered art therapist in California, Nevada, and Texas, I have developed a system to work through eating disorders and disordered eating, Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating, trauma work, and AFAB people diagnosing as Autistic in adulthood to live healthier, more meaningful lives. I utilize Brainspotting and other intuitive holistic modalities like art, tarot, and energy work to facilitate healing along with conventional talk therapy.
After hours, I enjoy making art, crocheting, hiking, and being with my loved ones. My two standard poodles really take the tiktok trend of the golden child and the menace very seriously. I am originally from Los Angeles and I’m currently in Las Vegas living that local life with great food and avoiding the strip!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing individual and group psychotherapy in Long Beach, and Artesia, CA. I specialize in working teens and adults who have experienced trauma (“classic” PTSD, C-PTSD, and Developmental trauma), as well as attachment wounds, grief, and identity concerns. Primary modalities include Brainspotting, Parts Work, expressive arts and play, as well as mindfulness training.
When not working, I love making cards and silly drawings for loved ones, sculpting, walking in the sun, and FaceTiming with my (perfect) 5y/o nephew. Originally from DC, I came out 12 years ago to finish my MSW, and will continue to stay for the weather!
I am a YogaWorks certified instructor and have been studying and teaching yoga since 2012. My classes emphasize restorative, yin, and mindfulness. I am also Usui Reiki 2 certified and have been providing in person and remote Reiki since 2017.
In my free time I enjoy arts and crafts (zines, t-shirts, stickers), reading, tai chi, and driving far away to try interesting food. I was born in South Bay, but currently reside in La Mirada with a foster cat named Shadow.
