I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW 73498) in San Diego. I believe reaching out for support is not always easy and being able to connect with your therapist is an important part in the success of the process. I strive to meet my clients’ where they are and work with them in an empathetic, nonjudgmental and supportive atmosphere, while incorporating cognitive-behavioral, dialectal behavioral and family system approaches. I believe connection is the antidote to suffering and through the therapeutic process and relationship together; we can develop skills to address the challenges faced along life’s journey.
I specialize in working with military members and their families facing a variety of issues including deployments, family dynamics and changes, post-traumatic stress, perinatal mood disorders, parenting, depression, anxiety, and grief/loss. I have extensive training in working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I have professional experience working as a therapist in agencies serving the military, residential treatment facilities, community mental health organizations, and university counseling centers.
