I trained at San Diego State University, San Francisco State University, as well as UCSF. I received my PhD in Psychology in 2011. My postdoctoral clinical training and work over the past 11 years has included running groups and teaching classes. Importantly, I have been committed to my own healing journey.
I am a humble person, who comes from a dysfunctional childhood herself, who was not born into much financial privilege. My father was illiterate and nobody in my family went to college. I was a single mother for many years, and now I am raising 4 children in a blended family with a kind and healthy partner. I am living the “life is all about plan b” quote. I love children and animals, and I am a die hard coffee fan. I am a vegetarian, I am 100% sober, and I try to connect with strangers daily. I am here to make this world a little bit better.
