CLINICAL PRACTICE

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in individual psychotherapy. My offices are in El Cerrito and Oakland, California.


I work with culturally diverse clients who want to feel happy, healthy and at ease in their lives. Together we address feelings of confusion, sadness, anger, guilt and anxiety, problems with addictive behaviors, social isolation, histories of trauma and families troubled by divorce, addiction, mental illness, abuse and estrangement from loved ones.

My first aim is to establish a warm, trusting, and collaborative relationship so you can feel safe to explore what led you to seek therapy. I use psychodynamic, somatic, and mindfulness practices to help you identify the painful patterns that hold you back. By allowing space for listening, reflection and honest talk, I can help you find the courage to face painful truths and make healthy changes.

This kind of work fosters kinder, saner relationships with ourselves and others over time as the insights, experience of caring support, and practice of open communication are integrated into our everyday life.
