I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of clinical experience in providing therapy to adults, couples, children, families and groups.

I believe in a holistic, empathic and client-centered approach to working with individuals. I believe that everyone has the capacity to grow and develop the tools to communicate effectively and reach their personal goals.

I have experience in working in the areas of:
  • Depression and suicidal feelings
  • Anxiety 
  • Drug and alcohol addictions
  • Coping with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses
  • Issues with 'coming out' in the LGBTIQ communities
  • Self-esteem and self-image problems
  • Marital and relationship conflicts
  • Sexual compulsions and addictions
  • Coping with grief and the loss of a loved one
  • Issues with past experiences of abuse or trauma 
  • Evaluations for asylum and U-visa applicants   

I also offer consultation, supervision and trainings to clinicians and agencies on the above issues. Please contact me directly to discuss how we may work together. 

Payment for Services:
You may pay my full service fee. I accept Victims of Crime (VOC) Compensation for services. I also am on the Healthy San Francisco Private Provider Network (PPN) through ACCESS. I am not currently on any private insurance panels, but can provide you with documentation to provide your insurance plan to help offset the cost of your therapy. I also offer, on a limited-basis, sliding-scale fees for low-income clients.
