Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oakland, CA

About My Clients

I work with youth, individuals and couples from diverse background. I am LGTBQIA+ affirming and welcome all races/ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation in my practice. I work with individuals around trauma, relationships, stress burnout, identity, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, self-confidence, adoption and issues around immigration, race and culture.

My Background and Approach

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Acceptance and Commitment, Solution-Focused Therapy with Mindfulness and Coaching. For couples, I utilize Gottman and Emotionally Focused Therapy that are evidence based in helping couples improve their relationships. My approach is strength-based and client centered putting you in the driver’s seat. I strive to create both a brave and safe space that is non-judgmental and strength-based so you can openly share your thoughts and feelings. Together, we can help you get to a place where there is less self-doubt and judgement and more compassion, self love and strength so you can live an authentic and thriving life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In both my personal and professional life, I’ve recognized that asking for help is courageous and often allows me to see that I’m not alone. Being vulnerable is being brave because I show up in my authenticity which can often feel scary. When we let someone in, it’s powerful and we allow ourselves the opportunity to grow and to heal. Regardless of our gender, sexual orientation, age, education, race/ethnicity, immigration, socioeconomic and relationship status, asking for help and letting someone in can feel vulnerable. We’re programmed to believe that we have to figure things out on our own and if we have to ask for help then maybe we didn’t succeed. I’m here to tell you seeking support is showing self love and often we realize we don’t have to do this on our own. Asking for help is a form of strength.
