During these turbulent times, I am able to help with anxiety and depression with mindfulness based therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). If you are struggling with grief and loss, or have past history of trauma, I can help make this confusing time easier through my warm, and direct interpersonal style. During therapy I will provide evidence based CBT methods. I have 30 years of experience as a social worker working with medically and psychosocially complex patients, and am able to tailor our work together with a strength based approach.
The best way to be prepared for what is to come is to live fully in the present moment. I have honed a person-centered mindfulness based approach in supporting those facing crisis. By partnering with you to set goals for recovery and transformation, we reduce stress and increase coping skills.
I have an expertise in working with children, adolescents, and adults with issues such as intergenerational conflict and substance use. I've been a LCSW since 1999. For 7 years I lectured at San Francisco State University and offer clinical supervision and consultation. I give talks on mindfulness and diversity.
