I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been a therapist for ten years. While I grew up on the East Coast, I have been a very happy Californian for 30 years.
I am a proud member of both the LGBTQIAS2+ and differently abled bodied population and have spent several years enhancing and promoting ways to provide mental health support to the unique intersectional needs of both groups. And most importantly, I am a fierce mama bear to a Gender Queer Non-Binary beauty.
I use an eclectic approach to address the diverse needs of every individual I work with. I am trained and certified in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, and crisis-oriented services. Additionally, I am continually enhancing my skills in affirmative therapy, mindfulness, and emotional transformation therapy – all within a solution-focused humanistic approach.
My passion is to support you with identifying your emotional needs, creating a mindful and supportive plan to address those needs, and applying that to everyday life. For you are the expert of you!
Together we can build that inner trust so you can accomplish whatever you set out to do
