What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I enjoy using a variety of theoretical approaches and prefer to meet the needs and preferences of my clients. I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to be very effective, result-focused treatment models. I try to ensure that each of my clients leave the session feeling heard, understood and respected. I like to ask my clients for direct feedback about their experience in therapy and use this feedback to make adjustments in future sessions. I want my clients to feel confident that we are aligned on how we are approaching their concerns.

Work History

I bring 15 years of experience in the field of mental health. My roots began in community mental health, doing work with foster families, public schools, and in-home services. Eventually I had the honor of becoming a clinical supervisor and mentoring new therapists in the CalWORKs program which helps adults improve their mental health so they can return back to work. Now I enjoy my full-time practice as a Kaiser Permanente staff therapist and as a private practice clinician. I love working with all populations and have a strong interest in learning about new cultures and different walks of life.
