WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT GATHER AND GROW OC?
I have the privilege to be part of the Gather and Grow team as an Associate Marriage Family Therapist. I see clients and will soon be facilitating a support space for API LGBTQIA community.
SCHOOL AND TRAINING HISTORY
I achieved my BA in Psychology at California State University of Long Beach and my MA in Couples Family Therapy at Alliant International University. I completed my traineeship and stayed on to work at the LGBT Center OC in Santa Ana. I’m currently in the process of becoming certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
I love working with all kinds of people from diverse backgrounds and different varying communities. It's fascinating listening to people's narratives of their story and their experiences. I love to hear where they want to go from there and to see what I can do to help them on their way!
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT BEING PART OF THE GATHER AND GROW OC COMMUNITY?
The moment I became part of the Gather and Grow OC Community I knew it felt different from other therapy spaces. Group practice is a perfect fit for me because I like to feel a sense and support and community in my own work space which is what Gather and Grow OC warmly provides. Not only do I have a comfortable space to work, I have the opportunity to create a community space for marginalized communities to meet and feel support as well! I'm very excited to see what the future holds for me here!
