I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the state of California. I obtained my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization with a focus on trauma and children from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I gained my clinical experience, initially working with adults with severe mental illness in Chicago, and moved towards my passion-working with children, teens, and families for the last seven years in community mental healthcare, private practice, as well as in school settings. I lived in Chicago for twenty years and, believe it or not, do not like deep-dish pizza. I have lived in San Diego for the past six years and love the weather. I love sewing, Barnes and Nobles bookstore to hang out and find cool reads, hiking, dogs, and my kids!
