I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY30328), certified Chair Yoga instructor, and Life Coach. I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary School of Psychology, where I also gained specialty training in the integration of faith and spirituality with psychological practice and research. I earned a master’s degree in Christian Leadership to complement my work helping people who are living with chronic illnesses to make sense of their suffering and reclaim purpose in their lives. 

In 2012, I was diagnosed with systemic lupus (SLE) and fibromyalgia. At the time, I was working clinically with men and women living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic medical illnesses. I came to confront my own ideas of what “health” looks like and gained a new perspective on life. I utilize my clinical training, scientific understanding, and personal experiences to help my clients navigate life after diagnosis. I understand the confusion, depression, worry, and questions that can come about after a life-altering chronic condition and work with compassion as you journey towards navigating a new normal. I integrate mindfulness, biofeedback, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and other evidence-based practices into therapy based on your needs to help you achieve your goals.

Congratulations on taking the first step towards wellness! Let’s take one step at a time together as we journey to learn that there are many “Faces of Health”. Let’s experience what yours will look like! Contact me to schedule your first appointment.
