Welcome to your first step in making a positive change for yourself.
I provide individual therapy to children, adolescents, and adults; as well as providing therapy to families. Are you struggling with the demands, of work, kids, a spouse or partner? Are you feeling overwhelmed at work/home and cannot manage the anxiety/depression? Are you struggling with blending two families together? I will help you explore solutions to the problems and challenges you are facing. I know it can be a difficult decision to take the next step to wellness. I look forward to answering any questions that you may have regarding my services.
I am a firm believer in shopping around for the right therapist. A strong alliance between therapist and patient is key to the success of therapy. Finding a therapist that fits your style and needs can be difficult. My role as a therapist is to provide my patients with support and guidance so that they can create their own desired path.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCS 23435). I received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Sociology; Social Welfare from California State University, Northridge in 1995 and my Masters in Social Work from California State University, Long Beach in 2001.
