About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California with over 11 years of experience working with children, families and individuals. I have worked with clients on a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting struggles and trauma.

My therapy style is warm, interactive and empowering. I will work alongside you to develop insight into the concerns that brought you to therapy and develop coping skills and strategies to better move through your current struggles and life! Based on the individual’s needs and where they are at, I utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution focused therapy to develop skills to help my client move through the situation at hand.

Life can be complex and challenging for all of us at one time or another. It can require extra support and interventions to help move through the struggles we may be experiencing. I commend you on taking the first and sometimes most difficult step of seeking help and I look forward to supporting you along this journey.

Should you feel in need of urgent help or that you are in crisis at any time during our work together; please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day; or 911. This forum does not provide any type of emergency services, so it is important for you to have resources available to you if you need immediate help.
