My journey in psychology began in 1994. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Texas in Dallas. I've always had a fascination with how human beings continue to evolve and grow, change and yet remain constant. A Ph.D. program in New York City was next on my therapy journey and just as I was about to start the program an unforeseen life change brought me to San Francisco.
I didn't think I would be in San Francisco very long, and that was 18 years ago. In this chapter my plan B blossomed into a successful career as an Executive Chef, businesswoman, and founder of an organic meal company. I have a deep curiosity about how the mind, body, spirit, and reality create who we are, as one of a kind individuals. This never left my mind no matter how many catering events I booked. While it was rewarding in many ways, it also moved me further away from the work I had always dreamed of. I finally decided in 2015 to give it all up and change careers!
Like all my clients, I also have a great deal of personal experiences that have shaped me. Throughout my life I've had many valuable breakthroughs in my own therapy sessions and has accessed deeper parts of myself, met my vulnerabilities head-on and confronted my fears. My breakthroughs have also opened doors, healed relationships, and have allowed me to become the person I really want to be in my personal and professional life. Additionally it has broadened my passion for helping others see that change is possible!
I enjoy photography, hiking, spending time with friends and traveling. I am a mother, daughter, sister, entrepreneur, writer, best friend, aunt, chef and lifetime student.
