I hold over 25 years of experience working with youth, adolescents, young adults and families. After earning my master’s degree in Counseling at San Francisco State University, I accepted a position with Family Service Agency of San Francisco, then with the City and County of San Francisco Department of Public Health, Community Behavioral Services. In this position, I helped to create the Transitional Youth Service Program. In 2000, I received a Certificate of Honor award from the Mayor of San Francisco.
I hold years of experience working in the areas of mood disorder, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Domestic Violence, Grief and Loss.
I established my private practice in order to continue working with youth, adolescents, adults and families as a private therapist in South San Francisco.
Being highly trained in child mental health allows me to guide children of all ages through the development of healthy coping mechanisms.
Offering a safe environment, teens are encouraged to express themselves while learning self-management techniques and successful ways to communicate.
Family therapy can help the individuals involved to develop goals they want to achieve and empower them with skills to live happier lives.
