My approach always begins with nonjudgmental and patient listening and I am thrilled to be a part of the family here. As a licensed clinical social worker, I bring years of experience as an expert in cognitive behavior, attachment theory, and psycho-dynamic psychotherapy to the practice. My compassionate drive to help people achieve their highest potential, coupled with developed insight and an innate sensitivity for the difficulties felt by sufferers of: loss, trauma, death, illness, relationships, eating disorders, and LGBTQ mental health issues, has dramatically improved the quality of hundreds of lives. I strive to combine practicality and safety in order to collaborate with my clients so we can discover and build a mutual sense of peace and trust. With a Master’s Degree in Counseling and an MSW in Social Work from Cal State, and as a Board Certified Diplomat, I have led geriatric care facilities and has acted in several chief administrative roles in a multitude of practices.
