Welcome to my practice! I am a therapist and licensed clinical social worker dedicated to guiding individuals towards positive change. With over three decades of experience in change management, I bring a wealth of expertise to help you navigate all of life's challenges.
My training consists of a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California, a Masters in Business Administration in Organizational Change from New York University, and thousands of hours in organizational change and community mental health.
At the core of my practice is a genuine passion for assisting people in creating positive change in their lives, families and communities.
I look forward to meeting with you!
Health, Happiness, Wellbeing
My approach stems from our basic human drive for happiness and wellbeing. We do not only want to survive – we want to thrive! We want to enjoy life to its fullest!
As your partner and guide, I will help you explore your unique journey, past, present, and future. In therapy, we will identify, explore, and notice patterns that help us to make sense of things and define a way forward. We will work together to identify plans of action every step of the way. As Chinese Master Lao-Tzu set forth in his writings nearly 2500 years ago,
“Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life”.
An essential element to our work is confidentiality and trust. The therapy I practice is Person-Centered. YOU are the expert in your life. Through empathic understanding, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness, we will build a rapport in therapy that empowers and motivates you to achieve your therapeutic goals.
