A BIT ABOUT ME
I received my social work degree in 2013 from the University of Southern California. Since then, I've spent much of my career doing mental health crisis work. Serving individuals in their most vulnerable state has greatly impacted my beliefs about the society we live in and my role as a health care professional.
Many of the people I’ve met in my work were adversely affected by circumstances far outside their control. For a myriad of reasons, they didn't get the help they needed before those circumstance took a significant toll on their mental, and sometimes physical, wellbeing. Those who were able to reflect on their situations shared similar regrets, the absence of early intervention and a disregard for their emotional wellbeing.
After years of witnessing the aftermath of crisis I decided I wanted to see what I could do to be part of the solution. Now I work as a school social worker and run this private practice as my small contribution to the treatment for these ailing times. I run my practice with a very laid back conversational style because talking to a stranger about your personal private business is awkward enough already. I've developed the following belief system that guides my work every day.
