Hello, and welcome to my page! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California with over 19 years of experience working with children, youth, and adults in a variety of settings. I started out my career providing case management/counseling services and eventually went on to take management and leadership positions in community-based organizations. In the last 12 years, I have also been supervising and training bachelor and graduate students to provide case management and therapeutic services. I enjoy reading, playing word and puzzle games, and gardening (beginner).
My specialty is working with people experiencing a wide range of challenges including self-confidence, depression, anxiety, pregnancy and/or parenting, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and various types of trauma such as sexual, emotional, and physical abuse.
My counseling style is down to earth, compassionate, and caring. I believe in honesty, treating everyone with dignity and respect, and having an open mind. My goal is to create a nonjudgmental, empathetic atmosphere where individuals feel safe to share their thoughts and feelings.
My approach combines active listening, strength-based, solution-focused, and cognitive behavioral theory. I will tailor our work together to meet your specific needs. I believe in providing the tools you need to live a more fulfilling life.
Whatever your struggles may be, you are not alone. I am here for you. It takes courage and strength to reach out for help. By reaching out for support, you have already taken the first step towards improving your life and achieving your goals.
I look forward to working with you!
