I have worked in both public and private settings including San Diego County Child Protective Services, private schools for emotionally disturbed teens, and Seattle Children's Hospital where I worked for 10 years as an ER Social Worker. I've had extensive experience being an advocate for teens in courts, hospitals, and schools. I now use my private practice to reach people on a personal level for their own healing. I believe that any teen or adult can move beyond their own pain and suffering into a life worth living. I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults that are experiencing multiple problems in multiple areas of their lives using evidenced-based modalities, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Mindfulness and self-compassion are also core components of my work with clients, as these are such important practices for anyone wishing to reduce their own suffering.
