Licensed Clinical Social Worker
My Approach to Helping
I earned my Masters in Social Work from California State University and my clinical focus is adults and teenagers suffering with depression, anxiety trauma, mood disorders, and substance abuse disorders. My specialized training includes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Rapid Desensitization (EMDR) therapies. I have most recently worked in a private clinic treating adults and adolescents. Prior to my current position, I was a case manager and therapist treating adults with chronic and persistent mental health disorders.
I have taught components of mindfulness, stress reduction, and emotion management. I am honored to be the support for others as they heal from mental injuries. I believe that my job as a therapist is to be a partner in helping my client reach their full potential.
I also believe counseling sessions should be as unique as the individual who comes to me for help. Together we can create a specialized treatment approach or an eclectic client-centered approach, whichever is best in supporting your journey to healing.
Specific Issues I'm Skilled at Helping With
- Substance Use
- Mood Disorders
- Christian Based Counseling

A Few Services I Provide
Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including:
- Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
- Marital/Couples Counseling: This type of therapy helps a couple that is struggling with aspects of their relationship. This type of therapy can also be used to help spouses and partners understand why their loved one has a mental disorder, what changes in communication and behaviors can help, and what they can do to cope.
- Premarital Counseling: A type of therapy that helps couples take the next step in their relationship, resolve issues in their relationship before they commit to marriage, or set relationship goals.
- Relationship Counseling: Focuses on improving the relationship between individuals by helping them resolve interpersonal issues. The relationship may fall under the marital, couple or family groups or may be in-laws, friends, co-workers, or other acquaintances.
- Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Some Client Concerns I Treat
Mental health crises range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to traumatic mental health crisis or serious long-term conditions. A mental health crisis is a difficult life situation where a person’s coping strategies do not work. People in crisis feel helpless and distressed, they feel like they are losing control over their life.
I am trained to help people experiencing a crisis and can teach skills and strategies to manage crisis situations more effectively. Some of my client concerns and mental health crisis and disorder specialties include:
- Abuse / Abuse Survivor Issues
- Addictions and Compulsions

Types of Therapy
Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, psycho-social therapy, counseling, or, simply, therapy, is the primary method for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health provider. The goal is the help an individual better understand their mental health and teach strategies and tools that manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.
While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, there is no single approach that works for everyone. A therapist may use a blended approach, sampling techniques from several different types of psychotherapy. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on his or her own unique needs. Below are some of the types of psychotherapy I utilize.
- Anger Management
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
- Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
