I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of California, with over 10 years of experience in my field. My vision is to promote quality care through compassion, professionalism, and teamwork. I work collaboratively with clients to reach their desired goals, and understand that you are the expert in your own life. I will provide you with support, feedback, and guidance to assist you in reaching you desired goals. The connection between myself and my client is essential to a sustainable therapeutic relationship. I provide the best care necessary, and connect with, and motivate, clients through one-on-one interactions, attentiveness, and empathy. The individual is always top priority, and it shows in my work and through results.
