My Approach to Helping
It's been quite the journey, and you have made it here! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in-person in Mission Valley, CA, and via telehealth. The focus of my practice is to work with adults, teens, and children who have been affected by various traumatic episodes. I also work with servicemembers, veterans, and families who struggle with relationships, and military stressors. My primary treatment modality is EMDR, which I utilize to treat complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and addictions.
My other passion in life is to destigmitize mental health and the negative implications for marginalized communities and for people of color. Intergenerational trauma is real. In its rawest form, it affects our ability to form healthy relationships, influences trauma bonding, and continues to impact future generations.
I specialize in providing trauma-informed therapy, meaning our sessions will be structured, directive, and solution focused. We will focus on who you are, who you thought you were and who you want your better self to be.
My therapeutic style is strength and values based, in which I integrate EMDR, Relational, Cognitive-Behavioral, Attachment-based, and trauma-informed concepts and techniques.
I offer free 15 minutes consultations, so if you are ready for healing or ready for change, please feel free to contact me.
Congratulations on beginning a new journey, or continuing your journey of self improvement.
