I am a California Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is a master clinician and supervisor, providing therapy for teens, and adults of all ages for over 25 years. I have worked for Palomar Family Counseling Services for over 17 years.

Within a safe, non-judgmental environment where you are truly listened to, I will work with you to help you understand how some of your behaviors and thoughts may not be serving you well.  My goal is to help people thrive, not simply survive. My goal is to help my clients gain the tools to help them become better equipped to navigate life’s challenges. I believe that because of my life experiences, I can help you understand yourself better. It is that understanding that will help you create a more satisfying life.

I am also a professional storyteller and have been on staff at our local children’s hospital in their Healing Arts Department telling stories to the children in their inpatient setting. Changing your story can change your life.

Specialties include: working with the LBGTQ community, trauma-informed work with experience in intimate partner abuse and sexual assault, mid-life and aging issues, dealing with divorce and family changes, grief and loss, anxiety, expressive arts, people pondering life choices, dealing with health conditions, work-life balance issues, spiritual trauma and questions about spirituality, adoption, chronic illness and health.

I provide Individual and family therapy. My therapeutic models include: CBT, Narrative Therapy, Feminist Empowerment, Solution-Focused, and Expressive Arts.

I provide services online, by phone and in person in Escondido or Fallbrook CA.

I accept clients on a sliding fee scale and also accept MediCal, MediCare, Tri-Care, Aetna, United Healthcare
