Welcome. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been working with children and families for over 10 years. I specialize in working with families to manage the challenges of childhood, adolescents and family life. I strive to assist clients using solution focused techniques in an open, non-judgemental environment. I have worked with children living with chronic or life threatening illness and have trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have also spent time working at the VA with Veterans and their families and have extensive experience as a Medical Social Worker.

I earned my BS in Sociology with a focus on Human Development from San Diego State University. I later graduated from San Francisco State University with a Masters in Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a member of the National Association of Social Workers. I am certified by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences to provide supervision to people seeking licensure.

I am here to help guide you through whatever it is that you are struggling with. I look forward to the powerful healing and growth that results from therapy and I look forward to meeting you.
