I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 8 years of experience in the field. I received my Masters in Social Work from New York University and am currently licensed and practicing in California.
I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in the criminal justice system, the foster care system and school districts. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, behavioral difficulties, substance abuse, family conflict and grief and loss. I believe that every individual and family has internal strengths to help them overcome whatever obstacles or difficulties they may encounter. My job is to help identify, harness and grow those strengths. I believe that every individual and family situation is different. I approach therapy as a process of two or more individuals working together in an innovative and creative way to help promote healing and growth.
I am trained in many different treatment modalities to help assist this process including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT, Child Grief and Loss Therapy, Child Parent Psychotherapy, Family Systems Therapy, Psychotherapy, Strengths Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Art Therapy.
