I am currently accepting new clients with daytime availability. I have very limited afternoon appointments which are reserved for children and teens.
As a therapist and clinical social worker, I help people understand and process areas of hardship in their lives. Whether you are struggling with trauma, depression or anxiety, marital conflict or undergoing a stressful life change, I will support you in exploring your story, setting goals, and developing healthy coping skills.
It is my priority as your therapist to create an attentive and reflective environment where you feel safe and respected. I can help you gain more insight about your situation so you can increase your confidence, peace and happiness in your life. My style is interactive and engaging.
I have been a social worker since 2005 and have experience working with children, teens, and families. I started my career in child welfare and then moved to hospital medical social work. I currently specialize in Perinatal Mental Health but also see a diverse group of clients experiencing a range of mental health conditions.
I am affiliated with One Life Counseling Center in San Carlos but run my therapy private practice as a solo practitioner. My education is in sociology with a Masters in Social Work.
Finding balance in life is important to me. When I am not working, I love to travel and experience different cultures, spend time outdoors, bake and decorate cookies, and socialize with family and friends.
