My passion is to help people live more fully as their true authentic selves and to be the person you most deeply wish to be.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in San Diego, CA
I completed my Play Therapy training at University of California, San Diego, Extensions.
Everyone experiences anxiety sometimes in their life, it's how we cope with this anxiety and how long it stays with us that matters. I work with individuals to learn good boundaries, eliminate unnecessary stress, gain coping skills while establishing a healthy balance with life and responsibilities.
Motherhood is simultaneously a magical and challenging time in ones life. There are a number of big feelings both from our children and from ourselves and at times we can all use a safe space to sort these feeling out. I recognize this as a mom myself. I completed an intensive post-graduate certification program in Maternal Mental Health at Postpartum Support International (PSI) and later became certified as a perinatal mental health provider (PMH-C).
My Social Work Master program had over 10 specialize classes and an internship program regarding child abuse. Following my MSW I worked over 6 years in a program that serviced children who were child abuse survivors.
