My approach to clinical work is grounded in the value of respect for the inherent dignity and worth of all persons. The goal of the helping process is to increase awareness and understanding and enhance capacity to change. I take a strengths-based, solution-focused approach to my work. I received my graduate degree at UCLA and I’ve been a licensed clinical social worker since 2000. I am also a certified spiritual director. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of issues including problems with mood, anxiety, stress, communication, and life transitions. Evening appointments are available. Most insurance accepted.
