I specialize in trauma, grief, and addiction. While studying social work at California State University, Los Angeles I learned the value of meaningful relationships and genuine human connection. It was then and there that I was able to make connections about who I am, where my passions lie, and I dedicated my life to becoming a therapist. I continued my studies at CSULA and earned my Masters degree in Forensic Social Work. It was there that I learned techniques in CBT, DBT, and Experiential therapies. After CSULA I studied Somatic Experiencing through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute.
It is my belief that healing comes from within you, and within the context of relationship. In my practice as a therapist and a healer I have been able to take this belief and put it into practice with my clients.
