About Me

Hello,

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in CA and have been practicing social work for the past 15 years. I received my Masters degree from Boston University in 2000 and have worked in a variety of clinical settings. The majority of my clinical experience has been in working with adults who struggle with mood disorders, chronic mental illness, and those who present for services in psychiatric crisis.

In addition, I have worked in private practice with clients who are dealing with some of the more common stressors of daily life; work, parenting, time management, relationship issues, divorce, addiction, grief and loss, and issues related to one's personal identity and sexual orientation.

I believe one of the most important functions I serve as a therapist is to bear witness to your life. We all need to feel seen and heard and validated for what we have experienced in our lives and what we have contributed to the lives of others. I am available to my client's to share and celebrate in their successes, to grieve their losses, and to feel all of the difficult and joyous feelings that come up along the way. I know that reaching out for help and being open to create change in your life is a brave and vulnerable act. When you are willing to take that risk, you will experience tremendous gain and personal reward.

"The best way out is always through" -Robert Frost

Clients have shared with me that they appreciate my honesty, professionalism, and sense of humor. They appreciate that I am a real person. I believe that the success of any working relationship is based upon a foundation of mutual trust and respect that we will build together over time. I look forward to working with you!
