Hello. I am excited to be a part of Bay Area Clinical Associates team and supporting the important mission to provide mental health services to youth and their families as a Marriage and Family Therapist Practicum Trainee.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Social Action from Palo Alto University.  I have continued on at Santa Clara University to achieve my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Health Psychology.  As part of my last year at SCU, I was excited to have the opportunity to join BACA .

I am passionate about helping others and believe that through therapy and strong wellness disciplines, individuals can achieve peace and mental well-being.  

In my spare time, you can usually find me hiking, hanging out with my dog Bentley and enjoying time with my family and friends.
