Bio – I have worked in social services since 1987, I graduated from UC Davis in 1988 with a Bachelors in Psychology and from CSUS in 1994 with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I became licensed as a clinical social worker in 1998. I have worked in a variety of settings but much of my career has been working in Community Mental Health and Federally Qualified Health Centers. I began my private practice in November of 2014 and have been a full-time sole proprietor since April, 2017
Most recently, I have focused on learning more about somatic psychology and completed my Somatic Experiencing Practitioner certification in January, 2018. Somatic Experiencing is a body-based, “bottom up” approach to treatment of single event and developmental traumas.
