I believe you are the ultimate expert in your healing and that I am a guide to help you tap into your true self and to develop your coping resources. I integrate different approaches custom to your needs which include mindfulness, dialectical-behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential and solutions-oriented approaches. I believe in the mind-body connection and in incorporating body-based approaches outside of traditional talk therapy when appropriate.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California Los Angeles and a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Southern California. With over ten years of experience in the mental health field, I have worked in both community mental health and private practice settings. I have focused on helping adults and teens through life transitions, crisis, trauma, self-esteem and relationship challenges. I have also enjoyed working with new/soon-to-be mothers as they shift into parenthood and deal with postpartum concerns. I have a passion for working with women of color utilizing a social justice/feminist lens as well as helping professionals experiencing burnout or compassion fatigue/secondary trauma.
