My Approach to Helping
I specialize in complex trauma with a background in trauma focused substance use treatment. I invite you to reach out and begin this journey into clarity and understanding. It takes desire and curiosity to begin knowing your true self. This journey will consist of many emotions, uncomfortable moments of awareness, and tears. But it is through the desire for something different that we choose to embark on such an adventure.
I obtained my Master’s degree from New York University Silver School of Social Work. I am currently a Licensed Master Social Worker, 109755 in the State of New York and an Associate Clinical Social Worker, 96710 in the State of California. I am currently under the supervision of D’Anna Thompson, LMFT 97547 in the state of California.
My Role as a Therapist
I strongly believe in open curiosity paired with synergy, which is a bedrock to a trust-based relationship. I aspire to aid you in building on your own strengths and learn additional skills that empower you to better manage life?s challenges. I believe that through the here-and-now process Irvin Yalom developed, the core of a trust-based relationship is working together and being open to the journey. This is true vulnerability, in real time. The outside world can melt away and this becomes your space that your emotions can fill. Nothing too heartbreaking, too much, too big, too painful, too loud, too joyful, or exuberant can lead me away from witnessing your journey alongside you. I believe together we can come to fully understand you better through growing your awareness. There will be moments of tears, great anger, feelings of betrayal, and finally relief. This is what I know will be as we work together.
