About Me

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of California. I started out in this field with the purpose of educating people on mental health and providing children, adults and families with the services they need to manage their mental health. I obtained my Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2011 and I have been practicing for 10 years in various settings with dynamically different clients. My clinical experience includes working with adults in different phases of life, struggling with depression, anxiety, stress and trauma. I have been trained in a multitude of evidence-based practices including Brief Strategic Family Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Managing and Adapting Practices which all inform my current approach to counseling today. I am here to listen, support, encourage, guide and coach. I will partner with you to create an effective plan that best fits your needs at a pace and in a setting that is comfortable for you. My approach is person centered and solution focused.

Candice is wonderful and she has really helped me stay focused and stabilized. She always has a suggestion for me with the various issues I'm facing. She is very patient with me especially when I'm being a bit counterproductive.
