About Me

I am licensed clinical social worker in California with 19 years of experience working as a counselor and I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, anger management, domestic violence, and abuse/addiction to substances including alcohol. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client centered, and strength-based techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. When you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Looking forward to working with you!
