Get to Know Me

A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You

Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a licensed psychotherapist can make things better. I care about your well-being and provide you all the tools you need in order to seize the day and learn how to heal and move beyond even the most traumatic circumstances.

I was trained at the USC School of Social Work where I graduated in 1994 with my Masters in Social Work.  I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 1997.  During my training  I held prestigious internships at the Veteran's Administration in Brentwood, CA and St. John's Child Study Center in Santa Monica.  I currently work in private practice with people who just want life to have a little more meaning as well as with people who need to heal from trauma and grief.  I work with women who are victims of domestic violence, with people who need to overcome depression, with people who are anxious and fearful.  I've worked with patients who have severe and persistent mental illness in locked inpatient settings, with hospice patients and their families in home, and with individuals, children and families in outpatient settings.
