Drawing from almost a decade of experience and training, my approach is trauma-informed and rooted in liberation psychology and public mental health.  I firmly believe that deconstructing narratives that keep us stagnant is key to LIVING AUTHENTICALLY.  My hope is that our work together leads you to be more honest with yourself, so others can also show up for you. You and your mental health are too valuable, let's get to work!
My private pay rate is $250 for individual therapy sessions. Payment is due at the time of service. There are limited opportunities for discounted rates for individuals in need of services.
I am In-Network with: Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Blue Shield of California, UnitedHealthcare, & Kaiser NorCal. 
**All therapy services are offered VIRTUALLY ONLY**

Iowa License Number: 117858
California License Number: PSY34224


Being in community is critical for our wellness. That is why group therapy can be a powerful and transformational experience. It's an opportunity for members to bear witness to your story and for you to gain relief and insights from others sharing similar struggles. Groups are also highly beneficial because they help cultivate social connection and foster resistance against identity-based oppressions. 

I will be facilitating an 12-week racial trauma group called "Systems Do Not Define Us: Healing and Resisting Racial Trauma." Group will either be Monday evenings or Saturday mornings. Details TBD.


Please know that I do not accept insurance. The group session rate is $45 per session. There is a $10 discount for clients who pay for all sessions upfront. Limited opportunities are available for discounted rates.

**All therapy services are offered VIRTUALLY ONLY**
