I am an online therapist for residents of CA. I offer people the convenience of having therapy sessions in their own homes.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in San Francisco, CA
I work well with clients who are struggling with anxiety. I use relaxation techniques in sessions and can provide people with audio files so that they can practice these techniques out of sessions as well. I help clients to understand where there anxiety came from so that they can feel in greater control of their lives.
Depression is a very common struggle for those who seek therapy. I work with people to identify thoughts that lead to depressive mood states. Together, we modify and reshape these thoughts to be more productive and lead to more positive mood states. I also help clients understand where these thought patterns come from and to develop a sense of compassion for themselves which will armor them against depression.
I am excited about helping clients move to a place where they are truly happy with their lives. I have noticed that many people have programming that leads them to be harsh with themselves and to actually sabotage their own growth and happiness. I help people to be more mindful and aware of when they are doing this so that they can develop true self compassion. I am convinced that this leads to a people growing in the ways they were always meant to grow.
I have a special interest in helping people to manage their anxiety. I use mindfulness and relaxation strategies that they can practice both in and outside of sessions. I also help clients to identify the primary sources of their anxiety, whether it be early trauma experiences or internalized voices from the past.
