My passion lies in helping others reduce distress brought on by adversity such as anxiety, depression and strained relationships.
I aim to meet each individual, couple or family at their unique starting point and to model a safe, non-judgmental and empathetic relationship so that we may work together to achieve your personal goals, enhance your mental health and explore what potential your close relationships possess.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from California State University Sacramento. Early on in my education I was certain that I wanted to gain a better understanding of the factors that drive human behaviors and shape their identities. I found that one of these key factors includes our close relationships, whether they be with family, friends or are more romantic, and how they play a major role in shaping each and every unique individual. This vital impact that our relationships have on our day-to-day wellness is what drove me towards wanting to study and practice marriage and family therapy. I then attended and received my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University Sacramento. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #138992.
Prior to joining the Davis Group I worked in a community agency with a wide range of clients, including mandated family law clients, victims of crime, and the facilitation of an anger management group. Mostly, this experience has assisted me in recognizing the enthusiasm I have for helping those who have endured trauma heal, as well as my interest in working with couples that are looking for guidance in repairing and growing within their relationships.
- Thriving after a traumatic experience. I have been training in Brainspotting, one of the most popular approaches for this work.
- Couples looking for pre-marital therapy, or coping with issues including infidelity, sexual intimacy and harmful communication patterns
- Blended families adjusting to their new family structure
- Helping parents and children get along. I’ve been trained in Parent-Child Interactive Therapy
I primarily grew up on the central coast of California where I would often enjoy watching sunsets and having bonfires on the beach. I moved to Sacramento to begin college in 2013 and have since grown to appreciate what California’s capitol has to offer. I feel my best when spending time outdoors while hiking, having BBQ’s with friends and family and spending days lounging at home with my husband, dog and two cats.
