I am a bilingual-bicultural Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients on a wide range of concerns from severe and persistent mental health challenges to issues related to daily life and relationships. Some of the many diagnoses that I have worked with include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, substance abuse, relationship and intimacy issues, parenting problems, career challenges. I have also helped individuals who have suffered emotional abuse and live with a personality disorder.
My counseling style is warm and interactive, I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My counseling approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, and psychodynamic therapies, tailored to meet the unique needs of the individual towards positive and healthy outcomes.
We all know that seeking the support, tools, and knowledge to improve one's life can feel overwhelming. Taking the first step is key. If you're ready, I will help support you along the path to a happier, emotionally healthier, and more productive you.
