My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker from Los Angeles California with over 15 years of experience providing psychosocial assessments and therapeutic care to adults and older adolescents needing help with finding solutions to make their lives happier and more fulfilling. With the use of proven therapeutic techniques, individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, and various life transitions can learn to reconcile and manage the stressors that create barriers to well-lived lives and healthy relationships.

I use collaborative and strength-based techniques that motivate change. Solution-focused, Cognitive Behavioral Skills and Acceptance and Commitment approaches may be the key to unlocking your best self. Because relationships are the fundamental foundations of self, I seek to build such a relationship that provides warmth, flexibility, collaboration, and trust so that goals can be met and sustained. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live a meaningful and fulfilled life.
