About Me

My reasons for becoming a therapist are actually pretty common-- I struggled with my own mental health  issues in my teens and 20's, and I saw some really bad therapists. I thought, "Someone has to do better than this!" Years later, I realized...I'm someone who can do better than that. I was accepted to the MS in Counseling Psychology program in 2015, after graduating with my B.A. in Psychology (minor in Women's and Gender Studies).


I love to learn, and most of my book purchases are clinical in nature. I also love to listen to life stories-- how you became who you are, and who you are becoming still.

I am all about education and understanding--and transparency. I believe in psychoeducation; equitable access to information and theories that pertain to your situation is a passion of mine. One of the ethical guidelines proposed by the American Psychological Association is Justice: "justice entitles all persons to access to and benefit from the contributions of psychology and to equal quality in the processes, procedures, and services being conducted".

As a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (with the state of California), I am not a licensed clinician-- I am working towards that license under the supervision of a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Laura Wells, LMFT #91219) If you have any concerns or would like to know more, please contact me.
