About My Therapy

Personal Statement
I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy Psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU). As a licensed MFT and board certified art therapist (ATR-BC) in private practice in Redwood City, I provide psychotherapy in the form of trauma-informed and neurodevelopmental art therapy (NDAT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness training for anxiety and depression, self-harm, suicidality, anger and stress management, and other trauma and psychosocial stressors for children 10+, adolescents and families. I am also an outpatient provider for Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at Kaiser Permanente in Redwood City. As an art therapist and clinician at Sunnyvale Behavioral Health clinic (Santa Clara County Health and Hospital System) from 2014-2016, I provided Trauma-Focused (and art-based) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for children with PTSD symptoms, depression, behavior problems, and other difficulties related to traumatic life experiences. I also provided staff trainings in art therapy. ​I am an occasional substitute group supervisor at CHAC in Mountain View, my internship site.
I served as Acting Treasurer from 2017-2018, NorCATA president from 2014-2016, and Membership Director from 2013-2014. I am currently Website & Technology Director.
