About Me

Hello and welcome!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California and have provided therapy and support for adults for the past 10 years. My history includes working with people transitioning and adjusting to new life stages and circumstances, as well as those who have concerns including depression, anxiety, and coping with histories of trauma. In addition I have worked providing therapeutic support for people who provide support to others, such as caretakers and therapists.

My counseling style has been described as warm, affirming and genuine. I believe very strongly in treating others with respect and dignity, and in staying with the client's needs and desires for counseling. My approach integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy as well as assisting clients in understanding their own emotions, motivations and in determining their own choices and life path. Most importantly I believe that each of us has a unique personality and something of value to share.

You've already taken the first step in reaching out for support in meeting your needs and your goals for your mental health, wellness, and life, and I would love to help you with the next steps.
