About My Clients
I am currently serving adolescents and adults struggling with any or all of the following: trauma/PTSD, depression, anger, self-esteem, and/or identity issues. I am also licensed in both California (license #114836) and Texas (license #66655).
My Background and Approach
My concentration from my MSW program was in CYF- children, youth, and families with a sub-concentration in military social work. I serve everyone with no discrimination regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, gender-identity, sexual orientation, and/or what happened in your past. My approach is in a strengths-based perspective and client-centered approach.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My personal belief is that in therapy, there should never be TMI. I want to get to know my clients as a whole- this means that I want to get to know their past, their present, and their future. Sometimes, it can be hard to open up about things like past experiences and/or trauma but nobody said therapy was going to be easy, right? I want my clients to embrace everything about themselves, even the parts that were in the past. I also want to know where they want to be in the future. The lens I look through is a humanistic one- one that accepts a person as a whole and not in "sections." Embrace everything about yourself!
