I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW#77266) with extensive experience working with young adults, adults and older adults. I have received specialized therapeutic training through the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. My specialties include; depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, domestic violence and sexual abuse, work/life balance stress, relationship and communication issues, women’s issues, low self-esteem, young working professionals, perinatal/postpartum mood changes and challenging life transitions (divorce, retirement, parenting etc).
I believe in transformative care towards healing, safety and wholeness. My approach is compassionate, collaborative and nonjudgmental, making it a priority to create a safe and empathetic experience for anyone who enters the door. My style is holistic and I utilize your strengths, spirituality and faith to assist you to reach your goals. I stand by this statement, "therapy is for everyone", as it is my goal to help you normalize the therapeutic journey, to lead a happier and healthier life.
