“You are your best thing" ~Toni Morrison
Hello! Welcome to your journey to happiness! I am the founder of MOCHA Therapy and a proud Californian, who has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of California since 2013. I obtained my Master of Social Work degree in 2005 at California State University, East Bay. My personal and professional journey continued to Southern California in 2006. I am now living and practicing as a Psychotherapist in San Diego, California.
I have experience providing direct clinical services with youth, individuals and couples. I specialize in depression, stress & anxiety, motivation, self-esteem & confidence, trauma & abuse, LGBT-related issues, family conflicts, relationship issues and coping with life changes, grief & loss. My practice nurtures a non-judgmental, supportive atmosphere rooted in safety, mutual trust, respect, and honesty. My therapeutic style is integrative, with elements of mindful and open conversations coupled with a client-centered approach.
My mission is to expand my voice and services into BIPOC communities to end stigma to seeking mental health services. Life can throw us challenges, obstacles and roadblocks. Starting therapy is a big decision to becoming a better you. Therapy is place where you can tap into your most authentic self, undue the obstacles in your life, be goal directed to inner peace, healing and happiness. You are the narrator and author of your life story. We will work in tandem to rediscover and recreate your story of hope, happiness, and healing. Again, welcome to your therapeutic journey!
