About Me

Welcome. I am glad you are here. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California. I offer video teletherapy. A little about me. I am a wife, mother of two young adults, and a free-spirited traveler. I know what it is like to feel stuck, yearning for that something. Connection is critical in our search for support. Are you struggling with trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, life transitions? Is your body storing pain? Are you storing your trauma? Are you questioning your purpose, career, relationships? Are you searching for balance? Is work or family obligations stressing you? Are you feeling disorganized, and your criticizing thoughts are getting in your way? Have you held onto a dysfunctional narrative of who you are? Self-discovery is a powerful means to uncovering your full potential. The relationship starts with yourself. The healing journey is defined by you creating a life you want to live as I work as an aid, the vessel to help. You have already taken the hard step of reaching out for help and I am so proud of you. You don’t have to continue living in constant fear, worry, doubt of what is holding you back. I can support you to gain a deep understanding of your worries so you can live the life you want. I work with women who have a strong desire and willingness to heal and discover what is holding them back. I embrace various therapeutic interventions. In a sensitive direct way, I will nudge you to find the courage to take charge of your life. If you are feeling the nudge, reach out and let us discuss your needs and if we are a fit for each other. Therapeutic sessions are held in a safe virtual space for you to express and focus on your whole person; mind, body, soul, and spirit. I will help you shift your narrative and heal through the therapeutic modality of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), that is informed by other therapeutic modalities. Within session there are various areas we may explore: maladaptive responses, trauma, values and beliefs, self-limiting beliefs, parts of self, strengths and resources, self-love, cognitive distortions, attachment, and communication. Year 2020, similarly too many, shifted my personal perspectives. I was on my journey of self-discovery. I was living a joyful life and recognized the fear of being with my thoughts and feelings. There was greatness awaiting me. With courage, permission to love self, and a clear vision it was time to fill in the in-between to reach my desired path. I have a love for travel, exploration, and freedom. While enjoying quiet moments alone, with a good cup of coffee and my journal. My specialties are lived experiences backed by evidenced-based training in the field of social work and clinical psychotherapy. It is through empathy and compassion I decided to provide the world with my gifts through building therapeutic alliances with clients, to showing acts of kindness.
