After transitioning out of a decade-long career as an entertainment publicist, Andi made the switch to counseling psychology with a mission to help, serve, and empower others. Using her former background in communications, coupled with her intersectionality and her drive for social justice, Andi advocates for diverse, underserved, and underrepresented populations with a whole range of issues, from life transitions to crisis management. Her experience volunteering—internationally, with children and youth, with people experiencing homelessness, in the church, and as a crisis counselor—has equipped her to work together with whoever is in front of her, meeting the person just where they are. As your therapist, Andi hopes to provide a safe space for you to unpack, explore, and overcome.
A Bay Area native, Andi is currently completing her Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University where she served as the President of Multicultural Affairs on their Graduate Student Association. She has an expected graduation of June 2021. She received her Bachelor of Arts in both English and Philosophy from the University of California, Davis.
