I am a licensed Clinical Social worker with a Masters degree from the University of Southern California. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology and film. I have worked as a special education teacher prior to my graduate education. My experience includes working with families, couples, children, and individuals in an acute hospital setting and in a psychotherapy private practice. I have worked successfully with patients in crisis, patients dealing with anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, bereavement, grief, and relationship difficulties. I have helped people with different addictions, and individuals dealing with life threatening illness.
I am an involved, caring therapist. My style is direct and collaborative. I am vocal and will help highlight harmful patterns. I am enthusiastic about providing you with a non- judgmental and supportive environment to empower you and facilitate your personal growth.
I am married with two children and I enjoy running and hiking in my spare time.
