I specialize in women’s mental health, trauma, and holistic healing. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate space for my clients to heal and grow. I understand how it can be overwhelming to talk about difficult emotions and experiences, so I strive to make sure that my clients are comfortable and heard. I also believe in the power of connection and community. I offer group therapy sessions and workshops for women to come together, support and learn from one another, and promote their physical and mental wellbeing.
More About me:
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles and my Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Southern California.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with extensive experience working with those who struggle with self-esteem, body image, eating disorders, addiction, self-injurious behaviors, suicidal ideation, peer group and family conflicts, and depression and anxiety.
I also welcome couples or families who are seeking to restore harmony within their intimate relationship or family system. Here, my technique includes exploring and bringing to conscious awareness the relational-patterns and communication blockages that have endured over time, thereby paving the way for deeper and more meaningful relationships.
I am trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/tapping), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Jungian therapy (shadow work), and Somatic Therapy, to name a few. I have sought out additional trainings geared towards providing services to specific sub-groups—such as the transgender, LGBTQ+, Domestic Violence, and Middle Eastern Communities—so to provide more culturally-sensitive treatment.
In my practice, I use a holistic and integrative approach to psychotherapy, which allows me to weave several modalities into treatment and attend to your unique needs. Throughout therapy, we will explore the connection between various emotional, physical, social, cultural, and spiritual dysfunctions, in order to promote recovery in these realms. My intention is always to maintain a safe, collaborative, and strength-based environment where new ideas can take the place of maladaptive thoughts and coping strategies that no longer serve you. With these tools, it is my hope that you will design a more fulfilling existence, find greater self-esteem, generate acceptance and feel a sense of agency over your life.
