About Me

I am a down-to-earth, compassionate, and non-judgmental person.  I have a genuine interest in helping you find greater happiness in a manner that works best for you.  My goal is to help you feel comfortable and supported, while becoming more aware of your thoughts, feelings, wants, and needs.  I have been described as being "easy to talk to" and "real."

Educational and Professional Background

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology (1997) and my Master's in Social Work (2000) from California State, University Long Beach.  After completing 3,200 hours of internship and passing two state-required exams, I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).

I am also certifed as a Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider.  I believe that food, exercise, and stress greatly affect your physical and mental health. 


Before starting private practice, I worked part-time at Axis Behavioral Health as a Clinical Supervisor, supervising interns who were working toward acquiring their hours toward licensure, and as a Mental Health Therapist. I worked with a variety of clients ranging in age, ethnicity, and diagnosis.  I frequently helped those struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, panic, trauma, relationship issues including domestic violence, parenting, and mood instabilities.  I worked at Axis for over five years and thoroughly enjoyed it. As part of an agency, I had the opportunity to work alongside and collaborate with physicians, psychologists, and substance abuse counselors.

Prior to working at Axis, I worked at the East Bay Agency for Children for eight years.  There I provided therapy to youth and their families, most often at a school site.  I worked with those who were having challenges with AD(H)D, opposition and defiance, trauma, and social relationships.
