Hi all! I’m Eva, a regenerative farmer, artist, jack of several trades. I was born and raised on the ancestral land of the Bay Miwok people often referred to as the East Bay of California. I feel most at home when my hands are in the dirt tending to veggies, painting with bright colors and laughing with my friends and family. I love tomatoes, colorful socks, playing outside and being exceptionally muddy at the end of a big work day. A passion for community care and mental health access led me to Therapy Access Group. As an Access Coordinator, I’m thrilled to help bridge the gap between therapy seekers and the support they need.

Hey, I’m Bri!

After I finish high school, I would like to pursue a career in psychology and hopefully still work with Therapy Access Project in the future. When I’m not doing school work or volunteering, I can be almost always found with a book in hand or hanging out with my friends, or reconnecting with nature!
