My Approach to Helping

I am committed to helping you feel heard and understood. I am committed to helping you to identify and work towards goals to a happier self. I am also committed to helping you feel comfortable with video therapy, as that is the only modality of service I provide. As a therapist, I am experienced in taking a solutions-based approach to helping my clients achieve their mental health goals. From anxiety to depression to healthy relationships, I use techniques in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and applied mindfulness tailored to fit the needs of my clients. I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Family Systems Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Wraparound, and Aggression Replacement training.

Professional Background: My work as a therapist began in 2012, while earning a Master’s in Social Work from University of Southern California. I have a broad background in working with many different people, including with teens, families, adults, and older adults. In Pasadena with Los Angeles Leadership Academy, I developed and implemented a mental health program for a K-12 school. I worked in-home and in the community with both Los Angeles County and Pacific Clinics to provide therapeutic services to homeless and low-income adults diagnosed with a severe mental illness. In San Jose I worked with Seneca Family Agency and provided therapy to families and children involved in the foster care system and in juvenile probation. I worked with Teen Therapy Center to provide in-home therapy to support teens and their parents to achieve their behavioral and mental health goals, specializing in using a combination of tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Wraparound behavioral support model.
