I have lived in Santa Cruz since 2006 and am actively engaged in our community, socially and politically. I have been involved and volunteered with various organizations focused on mental health, the prevention of domestic violence and sexual assault, supporting immigrant communities, environmental and racial justice, and the LGBTQI community. I have served as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Santa Cruz Chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists since 2016.
Outside of my counseling work, I appreciate the opportunity to travel in Latin America and am constantly studying Spanish. I have enjoyed training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, martial arts, and Insight meditation—all of which I enjoy incorporating into my work with clients.
