About me

I am a California licensed clinical social worker with over 10 years of clinical experience. I specialize in working with individuals presenting with anxiety, depression, substance use and mood disorders. I have a strong belief that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect and take every effort to ensure that you feel heard each step of the way.

Clients have described me as calm, compassionate and grounded. I believe that therapy must be driven by your own desire to change and work in collaboration with you to create a treatment plan that will assist you in meeting your desired goals.

I find Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to be a great tool in therapy and also use aspects of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness and Solution-Focused Therapy in sessions with clients.

Congratulations on taking this step to ensure a more fulfilling and happier life! I would be honored to help you in this process.

Sayrah was a great help during my burn out/depression phase. She is a compassionate person and truly cares about her clients. She has shared valuable information during our time together, like CBT techniques and non-violent communication. I recommend her to anyone who needs a little (or a lot of) help on their journeys. Thank you Sayrah!
