I am a birth doula trained by the Birth Goddess, herself, and am in the midst of completing my Birth Goddess doula certification. In addition to the births of my own 4 children, I have doula experience with both home and hospital births and currently attend births throughout the Long Beach area, the South Bay, and North Orange County.
Although I am currently not offering counseling services, I have over 8 years of experience working with individuals, families, and children in a one-on-one or group counseling setting. I received my Bachelor's degree in Social Welfare from U.C. Berkeley and my Master's in Social Work from USC. In my practice I use traditional talk therapy, combined with art, music, and discussions of spirituality (when relevant) to help you unlock the strengths you didn't know you had and begin to use them to create the life you want to live.
Throughout my life I have been drawn to helping and serving others. I believe our lives should be fulfilling and joyful and that all of us have the capacity to achieve what we deserve.
