Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Motivational interviewing (MI)
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California, becoming licensed in September 2017. I have over seven years of experience providing mental health treatment. My passion is using the techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness to help people with depression and anxiety gain the tools they need to manage their moods more effectively and to feel better prepared to deal with whatever stressors may come their way. My hope is to collaborate with you on your treatment goals and to meet you wherever you are in your mental health journey. As we work together, your feedback, needs, and preferences are important to me.

Witnessing the mental health journey of a close family member motivated me to pursue this profession.
I take a walk with my dog or engage in some sort of physical activity daily. It helps my mood and to manage stress.
I like to recharge by disconnecting from my electronic devices to spend time with my family, spend time outdoors, or read a book.
