About me

Hello everyone! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California with 10 years of work experience. I am a multiethnic, bilingual, and LGBPTQQIA+ identified practitioner, with extensive experience with issues of loss and grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, and perinatal/parenting struggles.

My clients have ranged from children as young as 4 and their parents, to the geriatric population, with a special concentration on young adults. I have passion for issues of immigration and reunification, transitional crises, and renewal after loss and trauma. It is important to me to help others find peace of mind and contentment in their day to day lives. I like to say "there is nothing I haven't heard :)", and hope to be a container of unconditional acceptance with my clients.

My primary means of therapy involve brief treatment techniques, such as Solution-Focused Therapy, Problem-Solving Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. However, I understand each clients' needs are different, and want to tailor treatments to the unique individual. I often utilize elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and narrative therapy.

I believe that you are the expert of your story, and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming life's challenges. Seeking help through therapy is a significant step, one that took great strength in and of itself. I have every confidence in you, and look forward to being a part of your journey toward, or in maintaining, wellness.

She is genuinely the most compassionate therapist and human being I’ve ever met. I’m so incredibly grateful for her help.
