Sometimes “life happens” to us and there are things that we cannot control, such as where we were born and raised, or the family members or coworkers we have. Other times there are obvious or not so obvious choices we can make to create the life we’ve always wanted or didn’t know we wanted until we made the space to think about it. Then there are times when we wonder if we’re capable of making those choices that may impact how we experience life around us. I believe in the power of choice and one of the very first steps start with the decision to reach out and talk to someone. Everything else after that can be a chapter in your life that you create with my guidance and support.
I am a Board of Behavioral Sciences certified Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCS#24624) practicing out of the Soultenders Arcadia office. I received my Bachelors in Arts in Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine, focusing on the study of people in their environment and how the two interact and shape each other. I concentrated in Psychology and Social Behavior, which piqued my interest in and led me to pursue a Masters in Social Work degree at the University of Southern California, with a concentration in Health. I hold a professional membership with the National Association of Social Workers and the American Case Management Association. I also hold an Advanced Certification in Hospice and Palliative Care as well as in Case Management. I have over 17 years of experience in the healthcare field, inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, and particularly with those who have been affected by a chronic illness such as cancer. My specialties include Anxiety, Depression, Adjustment Disorder, Sleep Issues, Life Transitions, Caregiver Issues, Stress, Women’s Issues, Pregnancy, Post-Partum, Post-Partum Depression, Parenting, Divorce, Chronic Illness, Cancer (new diagnosis, treatment, survivorship and end-stages of life), Stem Cell Transplant, Grief and Bereavement. I work with adults and the geriatric population, individuals and couples, from all ethnic, cultural, religious, spiritual and socio-economic backgrounds.
I value the connection between the mind, body and spirit and strive to help my clients discover a balance of their own. I have an Eclectic theoretical approach that draws on Psychodynamic,
Attachment, and Systems Theories, and Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused and Humanistic Therapies. My bi- ethnic background and life experience have allowed me to appreciate different cultures, religious and spiritual beliefs, creating a safe space for my clients to explore their family of origin, relationships and dynamics as they have experienced it in various stages of their life. My work with clients is strengths-based, insight-oriented and person-centered, so that individualized treatment plans can be created in partnership with the client.\
Whether you have been in therapy in the past, or therapy is new to you, I hope you choose life, in any way, shape or form that speaks to you, and I hope to help you discover it. I leave you with
a passage that has impacted my life, that which may speak to you: “For what it’s worth: It’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald

I know starting therapy can be hard sometimes. If you're new to it, I'm happy to support you every step of the way. You can start with a consultation with me, and I'll explain what it could be like, and we can see if I'll be a good fit for you. No commitment. Being curious about therapy and learning about it is a good first step. Making a decision to prioritize your own mental health is important and may open up a world of possibilities that you never thought you had.
