Change is happening on a large scale around us which can bring up a variety of emotions and unresolved issues. You might find that you have recently been feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or stuck. Or you may have felt this way for some time but haven’t found the right time to work through it. I can help.
My approach is rooted in warmth and acceptance. I provide a safe and supportive space for clients to be themselves and help them work toward acknowledging and navigating their emotional experience. I take a stance of curiosity and aim to help clients regain a sense of who they are through a non-judgemental lens.
I believe that deep down, everyone has the answer they are looking for; it’s about working with the right person to help you uncover it.
I have experience working with people healing from depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, and substance abuse. I have also worked with individuals coping with life transitions and other mental health concerns.
I received my master’s in social work from the University of Southern California in 2017. As part of my training, I completed an internship at Beit T’Shuvah, a faith-based, inpatient rehabilitation center where I provided individual psychotherapy for those in recovery from addiction. I then interned at UCLA’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program where I provided counseling, psychoeducation, and individualized training to caregivers and families of patients diagnosed with a dementia related disease.
After obtaining my master’s degree, I returned to the bay area and worked as a counselor at Marin Treatment Center, providing individual therapy and co-facilitating a variety of groups for those recovering from chemical dependency and learning to cope with mental health problems.
I went on to work as a psychiatric social worker in correctional health for San Mateo County, where I primarily worked with individuals in crisis and facilitated a group for those who were part of the behavioral health program.
I feel passionate and excited about continuing my work as an individual therapist at Bay Psychology Group.
