Welcome to my Practice

I'm a Long Beach based licensed clinical social worker (LCS28884) and I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I completed my Masters in Social Welfare (MSW) from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2009 and I became licensed in 2012. The focus of my practice is on helping people heal by encouraging them to tell their stories and reflect on how painful thoughts or emotions keep them from living their lives according to their personal values.
