About me

ABOUT ME
I believe that in order to become self-aware, one needs to be willing to lean into their discomfort. If you are here today, you are most likely struggling with something. Relationship and connection are key to the therapeutic process. I will meet you where you are, and you can count on me to be accepting and responsive, allowing you to go at your own pace.
I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California. I have a Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Children and Family Service, I have more than 30 years of social work experience, and have worked with people from all different ages, stages and backgrounds who are struggling with trauma and abuse, addictions, depression, anxiety, family issues , stress relationships, life stress, and blended families.
I use Problem Solving Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with individual and families. Both modalities are practical approaches to problem solving. CBT aims to identify, challenge and change negative thinking patterns. I use Seeking Safety for treating Post Traumatic Stress and Substance Abuse, and Trauma Focused Therapy. I can adapt according to your needs and preferences.
I will connect with you in whatever format you prefer. Video sessions tend to allow us to get to know each other better. I am also available by phone and text. I check and respond to messages regularly throughout the day.
