My education and training as a clinical social worker was obtained at San Diego State University where I completed both my undergraduate (’96) and graduate degrees (’98) in social work. I became licensed in 2008 and focused on issues of health and aging. Practicum included work on base at NAS Miramar with active duty service members and their families.
My years of practice in the tender issues of hospice have given me special knowledge into anxiety, depression, grief, loss, bereavement & trauma. It has shown me the importance of faith and hope during these dark hours of the soul and as a skilled companion, I will walk with you on this road to bring strength and integrity through the suffering.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and find this particularly helpful in my work with clients who are “stuck” in painful, traumatic memories that keep them chained to the past. I was trained through the EMDR Institute and HAP and have found this modality consistently freeing and restorative for my clients.
