I work with women who are transitioning to motherhood and are learning how to be themselves within their new role. Many of my clients are experiencing a difficult transition to their new role as a mom. They are finding their way into their new identity, feeling as though they have lost their past self, identity, and freedom. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist in California. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of San Diego and my Masters of Social Work at Azusa Pacific University. I have been working as a therapist for 11 years and have experience working with children, families, and individuals to address mental health needs. I specialize in working with postpartum women. I have my Perinatal Mental Health Certification from Postpartum Support International. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which helps to address and heal trauma. I have worked with many individuals who have a history of traumatic experiences in their lives and utilized EMDR to assist in reprocessing their experiences. I use an eclectic approach working with my clients, focusing on person-centered and solution-focused care.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

We’ll meet for your initial intake session to get a sense of what your needs are and where I can help. I am excited to help client who want to be the happiest and healthiest version of themselves. We will work together to come up with goals for our time working together.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having 11 years of experience in the field, I have had the opportunity to work with many individuals facing different challenges. I will challenge you and help you find tools you need to be a happier, healthier you. We will talk about your day to day experiences and how things from your past may be contributing to some of the problems today.
