Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Campbell, CA

About My Clients

Are drugs or alcohol creating problems in your life? Do you want to quit entirely, or want to try to cut down or control your drinking or using? I have extensive experience in the field of substance use, and I support patients with substance use disorders, whether it is alcohol, cannabis, opioids, or other substances. I provide individual counseling to individual adults, couples and adolescents. I honor the way therapy and recovery dovetail to support your change and growth. I work with couples

My Background and Approach

I provide a supportive and nonjudgemental environment in which you can safely explore your feelings, thoughts, and emotions. I will support you with issues related to substance use, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, trauma, struggles with relationships, and if you are going through a crisis. I can help you overcome obstacles in your life as well as to find more meaning in your life. My goal is to help you feel empowered to create your best life, however that looks for you. I believe it is important to offer those seeking help for substance use issues a harm reduction model of care where they can explore the option of cutting back or controlling their drinking/using as opposed to an abstinence-based model. Each client is a unique individual who requires their own approach to healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe it takes strength and courage to consider therapy, and that nothing is more important to its success than the "fit" with the right therapist. I am caring and supportive, providing a safe environment to work through uncomfortable and sometimes scary feelings. I believe in a strengths-based, client-centered trauma-informed approach to counseling and value creating a partnership with you to help achieve your goals. I love helping couples improve their relationship, improving their communication and trust, creating more emotional and physical intimacy. I am LGBTQ+ allied, kink and poly friendly.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
