I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist in private practice. I have worked with a wide variety of clients, ages 8 to 80, who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, and trauma.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. At times, I may utilize humor to highlight a concern, at other times I may be more directive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. I utilize a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy while incorporating natural and holistic styles in treatment. I also believe in matching the treatment style to the person and not the person to the treatment style.
It takes courage to take steps towards change. I am here to listen and offer my support and guidance every step of the way.
I have availability for Better Help on Mondays and Fridays. Please note that I do my best to return messages at least once a day, however if I am in session or Tuesday-Thursday when I am working in person it may take me several hours or until the evening time to return messages.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Cancer, Guilt and Shame, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Mood Disorders, Self-Love, Women's Issues, Young Adult Issues
