Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I moved to these beautiful mountains in the spring of 2018. My initial career path, before becoming a social worker and then a licensed therapist, was literature. I love how words can transform the way we see the world around us and our place in it. My interest in how we process and work through trauma and suffering led me to extensive training in trauma-informed practice and child-development. I practice meditation as a way of becoming more curious about, and present with, the joys and sorrows of day to day living.
