I am the co-director of Gather and Grow OC. I am one of the lead therapists and supervisors, as well as one of the educators who creates and facilitates workshops for Gather and Grow.
I received both my Bachelor and Master’s Degrees from Cal State Fullerton. My Master’s program put heavy emphasis on clinical training and really set the foundation for who I am as a therapist. During my time as a trainee and intern I worked at the LGBT Center in Santa Ana, the Pacific Clinics Sierra Family Center, and eventually under supervision in private practice. Having such a diverse experience in training helped me to hone my skills and learn where to focus my energy to best meet the needs of my clients.
In my solo practice, I really gear myself towards relationship work. Romantic, friendship, or familial, the foundation of who we are is often reflected in our experience with others, and I love working through that lens. I enjoy my work immensely, and continue to offer individual and couples therapy.

Gather and Grow was established when Traci and I started thinking about how we could better serve our community in a larger way. While I continue to emphasize the benefits of therapy, I also feel that the knowledge gained from my experience as a therapist is worth sharing on different platforms. Gather and Grow allows us to have a space to share new ideas via workshops, fun boot camps, or in consultation. We get to bring others to our table, and to encourage the importance of mental health in a tangible way.
