I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and am able to provide online therapy services to clients throughout the state of California. I attended California State University, Fresno where I earned my Masters of Social Work. From there I moved to San Luis Obispo, CA, where I discovered my love for the beach. I have worked in a variety of treatment settings including schools, community settings, Juvenile Hall, and hospital settings. I moved to the bay area in 2018, where I have predominantly worked with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, and trauma.
Some things I enjoy in my spare time are reading, exercise, yoga, spending time with my dog, hiking, watching TV shows, caring for my plants, and trying new outdoorsy things. I also enjoy practicing spirituality through crystal healing, meditation, journaling, manifestations, and doing activities that strengthen my mind, body, and spirit. I consider myself to be an accepting person that is open to many ways of living, which creates a judgment-free and safe space for you to share. Therapy is my passion, and I think it will show in my work with you.
My mission is to help destigmatize mental health therapy and convey a message that mental health is for everyone, just as physical health is. I believe everyone should see a therapist or counselor in their lifetime to get mentally fit and improve their overall quality of life.
The therapeutic relationship is unique in that you share parts of yourself you may have never shared with anyone else, so finding a good fit is key. It is an honor to be your therapist and hear your story. My mission is for you to understand your story, make peace with it, and find meaning in your hardships and struggles.
