I believe that our bodies were designed with an innate capacity to heal what is wounded, and that the invaluable role of therapy is to offer a safe space to see our wounds with compassion, bring awareness to our needs, and find the right tools to access our own, unique capacity for healing and resilience.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 13 years of practice working with adult individuals, children, and families. I received my Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan. Over my career, I have worked with people in all stages of life and have supported them in a wide range of settings, including intensive treatment for adults, community-based treatment for children and families in East Los Angeles, post-natal mental health care, parent coaching, and private practice. My experience has taught me that healing begins by staying curious with ourselves and trusting in our innate capacity to find peace and meaning in our lives.
My training is rooted in trauma healing and resiliency, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), attachment-oriented therapy, somatic strategies, mindfulness, and Mindful Self-Compassion. As a clinical supervisor, I offer our associates weekly supervision to ensure that the therapy you receive is attuned to your needs, driven by your goals, and rooted in highly accessible tools designed for your individualized growth and healing.
When I am not working, or geeking out on books/podcasts/trainings related to my practice, I love spending my time with my two young children and trying to keep up with their energy! I feel deeply tied to Los Angeles and the communities I have connected to through books, food, and nature.
