Supportive, Affirmative, & Therapeutic
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Orange County, CA area. I specialize in helping individuals with emotional/psychological difficulties, identity uncertainty, relationship issues, and other circumstances unique to their lives. With over fourteen years of experience, assisting both individuals and health care institutions, I specialize in individual, couples, and family therapy. I also work in treatment planning, crisis intervention, and facilitating successful recovery goals to improve clients' well-being.
I received a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of California, Irvine in 2006. Thereafter, I attended California State University, Long Beach where I received my Master of Social Work in 2008.
I work with a diverse and progressive community, assisting individuals and families, and heterosexual, gay and lesbian couples.
I participated in the Addressing Health Disparities Leadership Program with the National Council for Behavioral Health in Washington, D.C in 2013-2014, and I was a fellow of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration's Project Leadership Initiatives for Tomorrow in 2015.
As a community organizer, I continue to advocate on behalf of marginalized communities and issues. I received the Emerging Leaders Award from State Senator Lou Correa and the Orange County Asian and Pacific Islanders Community Alliance and Orange County's 30 Most Influential People distinction in 2014.
