Hello! Thank you for taking the courageous first step in reaching out for support!
My name is AJ and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California. I truly feel that it is an honor to have someone be vulnerable enough with me to share their anxieties, insecurities, addictions, depressed thoughts, and personal trauma. I'm hoping you might be willing to do that with me as well.
My experience with adults varies extensively, from inpatient to outpatient treatment, to a crisis stabilization unit, to residential care with women with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, to my own private practice. These experiences have exposed me to numerous mental health struggles that I'm comfortable working with including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma/PTSD, and substance use. While theories and treatment protocols are important, my experience has shown that the therapeutic relationship is a far more important factor in assisting someone with a mental health challenge. People say I'm down-to-earth, and very genuine which helps build trust between myself and my client. I believe in the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), but do not use a cookie-cutter approach with anyone. Let's work together to find what works for you!
I look forward to hearing from you!

AJ has been so wonderful. I was previously with a therapist that I just didn’t click with (through another organization), and was honestly jaded by the entire experience. AJ has worked with and supported me in such a manner that she is a part of the reason why my life has turned around. AJ is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
AJ has been an immeasurable resource for my mental and emotional health. She has been knowledgeable and insightful about the help and work I need to be doing. This has been a breakthrough for my well-being as I feel completely heard and understood by AJ, making healing possible and attainable.
Anjanette is a very nice and compassionate person, who responds to her clients in a timely manner. She understands and listens to her clients worries and day to day struggles.
