About Me

Hi there!
I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California. I earned my Master of Social Welfare (MSW) degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 2004. I've worked in many different settings with individuals, couples, and families who have a variety of issues that include, but that are not limited to, relationship and family conflicts, parent/child challenges, adjustment to phases of life, depression, stress, and grief.
My experience as a clinician has led me to focus on working with and helping my clients with a tailored approach that combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and strengths-based therapy models. I strive on bringing you to a point of becoming confident in your abilities to move forward by minimizing fear and leading you to tangible and realistic goals and outcomes. I offer a non-judgmental, empathic, and mindful approach with my clients who are willing to accept the challenges that come with participating in counseling and have the desire to work towards and make positive changes.
Whether your challenges are recent or longstanding, whether you are wanting to improve your mood, relationships, or the ability to cope with complicated emotions, I am confident I can offer a perspective and additional support that allows you to gain the momentum you are seeking in order to move forward and start healing.
I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can message me anytime through BetterHelp. I usually check messages twice each day, Mondays through Fridays. I offer messaging, live chat, video and phone sessions with limited availability in the evenings. At this time, I am not able to provide services on the weekends. What you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so always check with me through a message first!
I look forward to working together!

Zoe has given me faith and confidence in the process of healing. She is an amazing listener and can challenge me to think differently in order to grow as a person.

Zoe has been great, quickly getting at the underlying issues I’ve been grappling with and putting a name to things I was having a hard time communicating.

Zoe is the first therapist I have spoken to, and it has been such a wonderful experience that I've recommended it to everyone. She is very responsive, a great listener, and has helped me greatly in even just the past few weeks.
