• Personality Disorders
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Bachelors of Art in Sociology from California State University Long Beach and my Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California. I have over 8 years of experience working in the mental health field in various settings such as psychiatric hospitals, mental health, urgent care facilities, along with inpatient treatment centers. I also served for over 10 years in the United States Navy and have many family members who have served as well.
I have had the privilege of working with clients who suffer from a variety of issues which include Substance Use Disorders, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, grief and loss, childhood trauma, caregiver fatigue, end of life issues, self-harm, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Schizophrenia and other chronic mental health disorders. I want to be an agent of change and help erase the stigma of mental health so that individuals can feel a sense of comfort in receiving mental therapy.
I pride myself in the ability to relate to clients that come from diverse backgrounds along with others that may not be initially open to the idea of therapy. I believe that change is possible for every individual and I look forward to working with you soon. Can we talk ?
