I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY24867) with an office in Sacramento. I treat a wide-range of issues, including: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger management, relationship challenges, grief, trauma, life transitions and identity development. I work with clients from a variety of backgrounds and have expertise in working with clients who are dealing with oppression, stigma, or discrimination, as it relates to various components of their identities (i.e. race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, age, socioeconomic class, ability).
I received my Doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA and my Master's degree in Counseling from George Washington University in Washington, DC. My training includes rotations in a psychiatric inpatient unit, several university counseling centers, a substance abuse clinic, a community mental health center which served adults, children and families, and a testing center for children with developmental delays. I completed an APA-accredited internship and post-doctoral residency at UC Davis Counseling and Student Health Services.
When not in my therapy office, I enjoy traveling, watching movies, scrapbooking, eating out, attending cultural events and spending time with my family.
