Staff Psychotherapist

Biography: 

I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology in 2011 from Antioch University, Los Angeles.  I worked for one year before graduation at Kaiser Permanente Addiction Medicine in Los Angeles.  In that capacity, I worked with teens and adults in early recovery, both 1-on-1 and in groups. I also worked with relatives of those patients in a codependent support group.   

After graduation I worked for two and half years in rural public mental health in Trinity County, in the mountains of far Northern California.  In that capacity, I worked with clients ranging from four years to over sixty years old, with a broad range of mental illness challenges.  I saw couples, families, children, teens, adults, and elders. I gained more experience working with issues of chronic illness and addiction.  I facilitated several ongoing groups: a Dialectical Behavior Therapy group, a mindfulness group for elementary-aged boys, a women’s group, a men’s group, a mindfulness for anxiety group.  After licensure, I had a private practice online and in Eureka before joining the CAPS team at Humboldt State.

Alongside my formal psychology training, I have studied eastern psychology and philosophy, as a lifelong student of yoga and in the Theravadan Thai Forest and Vietnamese Zen traditions.  This study includes attending and staffing many meditation retreats, notable among them being the 21-day retreat in Plum Village, France, in June of 2014, taught by Thich Nhat Hanh, on the topic of “What Happens When We Die?”
