About this Service

Hello! Asking for help is really hard, but I’m so glad you did. Kudos to you for being resourceful.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Los Angeles, California. I earned a few degrees from UCLA including my Master’s in Social Work and am finishing up a doctorate in Educational Psychology at USC. In addition to my experience, I also lecture and mentor other graduate students in the southern California area. Outside of my work, I enjoy eating sushi, coaching sports, and endurance sports.

My approach to therapy is client centered; You are the expert of your life and have all the power to choose the direction and depth of therapy. Through a strengths-based and solutions-focused lens, I help you identify strengths and develop a plans that meets your personal goals, I also assist clients in exploring relationships through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), exploring your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to find thought patterns that lead to unwanted thoughts and behaviors.

Your journey to finding a therapist match can be challenging; Just like when life doesn’t go exactly as planned, I hope you keep trying :).
