About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker practicing in San Francisco, California. I graduated from San Francisco State University in 2012 where I studied clinical social work with an emphasis in community mental health. For several years, I worked in community mental health settings with young adults, seniors, and people experiencing homelessness. Prior to my graduate studies, I worked as a counselor and outreach worker at a clinic for sex workers. 

My work is informed and inspired by my lifelong commitment to pursuing social justice. I bring an anti-oppression lens to my practice and seek to come from a place of cultural humility. I believe that healing ourselves as individuals, healing our communities, and healing our world are inextricably intertwined.
