I am a Bay Area Therapist, originally from the East Coast.
I have Masters Degree in Social Work from San Francisco State University and a BA Degree in Psychology from California State University East Bay. My interpersonal style is warm, humorous, down to earth, and straightforward.
This work is important to me because I grew up in a family that didn't provide me with a blueprint for healthy relationships. I spent my younger years making mistakes, running away from healthy relationships and running towards people that were themselves wounded. After years of my own healing, clinical education, and professional experience I am passionate about helping people on their own journey to loving themselves.
I am a LCSW with 8 years of experience in working with individuals, couples, and families in various non-profit, school, and governmental settings. I am bilingual and bicultural. I have experience working with individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and I am an affirming therapist.
I am a member of EMDRIA (the EMDR International Association) and abide by their standards and policies, in addition to the ethical codes of my profession.
I am also experienced in providing immigration evaluations.
