I have worked in schools, community clinics, and non-profit agencies serving people ages 6-85 from a variety of backgrounds. I value social justice and actively explore the ways power and difference impact relationships and experiences in mental health settings, learning environments, and everyday life. I am committed to developing inclusive spaces.
One focus of my work has been sex & sexuality, supported by my experience as a trainer with San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI). I work with a wide variety of topics related to sex, sexual health, sexual identity, and sexual trauma. I am certified as a sex educator through SFSI and as a rape crisis counselor through Bay Area Women Against Rape.
I currently support a behavioral health program as a quality assurance specialist where I provide training and technical assistance to staff and intern therapists with emphasis on documentation and adherence to clinical and quality standards. I am additionally a clinical supervisor for Crisis Support Services of Alameda County and the Pacific Center for Human Growth.
I hold a master's degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and a master's degree in women's studies from the University of Oxford. My undergraduate education was at the College of William & Mary.
