I received my undergraduate degree in sociology from the University of California, Los Angeles. I then spent seventeen years working in various educational settings as a behavioral therapist in a special education classroom, a tutor, a teaching assistant, and a kindergarten co-teacher. After finding my passion for working individually with struggling students, I returned to school and obtained my Master’s in Educational Therapy at California State University of Northridge.
I am dedicated to working with children with learning differences - supporting them emotionally and academically. My goal is to provide a safe, supportive space and a nurturing environment that cultivates feelings of security, creating the critical foundation for learning. My approach utilizes multiple strategies, including game and research-based interventions that address the student’s unique pattern of learning strengths and areas of need. I aim to strengthen skills while promoting autonomy, an increased love of learning, and boosting self-esteem.
When I am not pursuing my deep-rooted love for helping students reach their full potential, you can find me biking with my daughters, on a picnic blanket in a local park, or indulging in salted chocolate.
