Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I focus my interventions on helping clients bring balance to their life by using evidence-based practice techniques and strategies to increase self-awareness, improve interpersonal relationships and manage symptoms.
Therapy can help you remove unwanted behaviors and restore joy and fulfillment to your life. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues or impact from trauma, I provide a non-judgmental, active, caring environment to enable you to make positive changes. My therapeutic approach is supported by the most recent research. I integrate cognitive behavioral, mindfulness-based, and multicultural theoretical perspectives in my work. As you tell your story, I will help you identify your inner strengths, develop lasting and more effective coping skills that will re-energize your relationships and life.
We all endure relational and environmental challenges that can push us into a state of overwhelm, whether that be at work, home, school, or in our own mind. I believe that working to identify these stressors, then developing strategies and approaches to overcome them with a trusted therapist can lead us to getting the most out of our lives. I enjoy working with a diverse population of clients, and specifically love engaging in therapeutic work around reauthoring the story we tell ourselves and have been told by others. I appreciate helping clients to challenge the narratives we may perceive as true about ourselves and our journey.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of California with over 4 years of experience working as a therapist and over 15 years of professional experience related to trauma and abuse-related issues. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels.
As a bilingual, first generation Mexican American therapist and Bay Area native, I am passionate about promoting exploration and connection to self identity, healthy relationships, and a growth mindset in times of transition. I work with children and families, particularly I specialize in providing a supportive and nonjudgmental space for teens struggling with the chaos of adolescence and becoming a young adult in this generation. I am here to process these anxious feelings and help teens develop the skills to better recognize, understand, and tolerate their feelings, so they can learn to “grow through what they go through”.
I hold over 25 years of experience working with youth, adolescents, young adults, adults and families. After earning my master's degree in Counseling at San Francisco State University, I accepted a position with Family Service Agency of San Francisco, then with the City and County of San Francisco Department of Public Health, Community Behavioral Services.

Looking for help in this vulnerable process of healing? I'm honored to share space with people who bring the effects of Trauma and Loss to session. I am passionate about helping people with difficult pasts heal and feel more present. I help grievers work through the would-have could-have and should-haves that linger long after a loss. Have you spent more time explaining your Cultura to a therapist than the issues you wanted to focus on? Let's focus on you. I got you! I am a Bay Area Chicana therapist, that loves integrating culture as a means of healing, context and growth.
Have you been struggling with self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression, or stress? I understand how difficult that can be. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them achieve their potential and overcome life’s difficulties. I utilize evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and others to help men and women achieve their potential. Using confidential, one-on-one telehealth sessions (phone or video), we’ll work together to understand the past and create a positive future with new tools and strategies. As a biracial Asian American man, I have personal insight into our unique cultural experience.
I support women who are grieving the loss of a parent. I love helping compassionate caregivers, who feel deeply for others, but have a hard time doing this for themselves. Many of my clients come to see me when they’re struggling to voice their needs, can’t share their grief with friends and family without fear of over concern or judgement, and when they experience prolonged feelings of guilt or shame.
Sometimes we forget ourselves as we go about our lives, or forget what is important. Perhaps other priorities have taken the place of your needs and goals. Maybe it is work, or other people, or the details we all have to attend to in order to get through the day. Why am I here? Why am I doing this? Maybe you do know the "why" and yet that doesn't feel like enough. Maybe you wake up with dread knowing that the toil and toll begin again and there is no room for you. Life has become a joyless exercise full of duty, obligation, emptiness. The lack of meaning keeps you awake at night or drives you to distraction.
One of my specialties is mindfulness awareness for Men- that is, helping men who have historically struggled with a mind - body connection, find that connection for themselves. While I feel that everyone would benefit from this, I'm particularly passionate about helping men achieve this. There is a power in that connection. Through various techniques I teach you how to process and gain control over your thoughts and emotions - with the goal of processing trauma, reducing depression, anxiety, and emotional dysregulation. I have seen it work. I have seen the change in people and observed this physical phenomenon. There is hope for you
Sometimes we feel bad and don’t know why. Other times, we know the problem, but change feels impossible. That's where I come in. My style is warm, direct, and authentic. I bring humor and curiosity to my relationships with clients. You can expect to laugh, to be interrupted by questions, and to be heard with heartfelt empathy.
You want to learn and grow, but lately you've been feeling stuck. The demands of everyday life may have you overwhelmed, exhausted, or feeling down. You’ve lost your sense of meaning and purpose (you ask yourself “why am I even doing any of this?” or “what’s the point?”). You feel BURNT, and you want to feel fresh. You’re struggling with depression, anxiety, or burnout, and looking for tools to help.

I also have experience working with children and adolescents. I have worked in many fields, including the foster system, homelessness, hospitals, multicultural individuals, veterans, and end-of-life clients.
