I’m a SF Bay Area native and have always loved our City for its diversity, history, weather, humanity, and friendliness. I pay attention, am empathetic, authentic, interactive, non-judgmental, curios, strength-based, and creative, I’m a Psychotherapist with a California License in Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I am nationally recognized with a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) via NAADAC, and am a provider of Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT) via the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). I have over 12 years of experience in treating depression, anxiety, Stress, PTSD, Bi-Polar Disorder, Substance and Alcohol Use Disorder, and Co-Occurring Disorder. I’m an Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Psychotherapist. EBP is a person-centered approach that integrates my knowledge and expertise with treatments that have been validated by research and patient preferences, needs, and values. If you are using substances/alcohol as a means of self-medicating to alleviate feelings of sadness, anger, hopelessness, confusion, stress, loss of self, grief; you are not alone. If this quick fix has turned to a long-term ritual; you may find this way of coping unsustainable. It can become a much larger issue unto itself and as a result become a co-occurring issue alongside your mood disorder, anxiety, PTSD, Stress, etc. There are gold standard treatments that can alleviate your symptoms. Let’s meet and find the best path for you.
