About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California with various experiences as a therapist working with diverse individuals and families within their communities to increase their well-being and quality of life. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including crisis support needs, mental health and psychiatric issues, interpersonal and family conflicts, psychosocial stressors, academic / legal / occupational/ financial /housing hardships, and a history of substance/ alcohol use and trauma, and grief/loss. I also can help with the development of coping skills, social skills and anger management.

My therapuetic style is caring and compassionate. I treat all of my clients with dignity, respect and integrity following a code of ethics to ensure healthy and safe interactions. I utilize an electic therapeutic approach to include: person-centered, person in environment, empowerment theory, strength-based, solution focused, cognitive behavior, motivational interviewing, task-centered, and mindfulness/meditation training. I will meet your unique and specific needs by using theories and approaches most meaningful for you. I will help you find a quality of happiness, and improve how you feel and think about yourself and your world.

It takes acts of self-love and courage to seek the change neccessary in your life in order to meet your goals.

Let's take this journey together.
