I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has provided therapeutic services to children and families in San Francisco for over 10yrs. Specializing in treatment for children ages birth through adolescence and their families, I use a strengths based approach and believe the therapeutic relationship creates opportunities for change and healing.
Through assessment of the child and family’s needs and concerns, I provide the child and family with support in learning how to understand and support their child's needs. I specialize in treating educational and learning difficulties, ADHD, anger management, anxiety, depression, divorce/separation, grief, immigration issues, trauma (PTSD) and social skills. To address these needs I use an array of modalities to engage children & teens, including art therapy, play therapy, sand tray, somatics (mind/body awareness) and cognitive behavioral strategies. In addition, I best support my clients by providing information, referral and linkage to services in schools, medical providers, specific therapeutic specialist and other relevant services.
I am bilingual in English and Spanish and have served the Latino community in SF for the last 20yrs, having an extensive knowledge of resources and services in SF that serve children and families. I believe the therapeutic process can benefit people of all ages as it allows one the opportunity to get to know themselves in new ways and find ways to live with greater harmony and health.
