I am an ACSW #93380 associate license in the State of California. I have 19 years of experience in providing counseling/therapy and have worked with several individuals from a vast vary of diverse backgrounds. I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology from U.C.L.A. in 2002. I earned my Master of Social Work degree (M.S.W.) from San Jose State University in 2006.
I am a firm believer that all of us have difficult times in life, but also that given the proper therapeutic tools every person has the ability to meet their mental health goals. I have a lot of experience assisting people suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, OCD, and many other mental health diagnoses. I believe that every person is different and use a number of therapeutic modalities to best fit the needs of the client.
I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas other life barriers.
You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on including a special focus of self-determination with my clients.
Congratulations on taking the first (and often most difficult step) of seeking mental health services. I look forward to working with you in the future and more importantly help you meet your goals.
