About Me

Hi, I am a bilingual English/ Spanish licensed clinical social worker in California with over 12 years of experience in the mental health field. I have the honor of working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, PTSD, anger and stress management, parenting issues, and couple relationship challenges. I strive to create a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable environment so we can work together to gain insight into the various contributions to your feelings and problems. I have experience guiding couples through depression/sadness, anxiety/worries, and relationship/communication issues while teaching them lasting skills to address their challenges. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI)among others. I tailor the intervention to my clients strength-based. Meaning I view my clients as individuals with strengths and resiliency no matter what their circumstance may be, and my work and privilege is to help them use that to be empowered. We will work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of your problems, improve communication skills, build empathy & respect, learn effective problem-solving & conflict resolution skills, and strengthen connections. Very soon you will discover yourself and about the changes you can make to propel your relationship with your beloved to move forward. As long as you are open to sharing as well as accepting what is shared with you, this process of exploring can be highly rewarding, and it will also set up for success down the road. I’m looking forward to working with you!
