Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Linda!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California with 5 years in private practice as well as 25 years in mental health settings, focusing on individuals and young adults as well as other specialties.

My approach

My approach is to work with you in a warm, supportive environment. I feel it is important to build a trusting relationship where you are respected and listened to, and we work together on your concerns. I use multiple clinical approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Brief Therapy, Grief Therapy, Solution Based Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy. These therapies are then tailored to best fit your particular situation.

My focus

I have worked with clients with depression, anxiety, anger management, relationship issues, parenting, and couples' issues. I have also worked with people dealing with domestic violence and trauma. I am willing to see individuals and minors (ages 13-17). My specialties include ADHD, anger management, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, divorce, domestic violence, family conflict, grief, LGBTQIA+, life transitions, parenting, relationship issues, self-esteem, stress, transgender issues, panic attacks, career counseling, and coping skills.

My communication style

I strive to create a warm and supportive environment where you feel respected and listened to. We will work together collaboratively to address your concerns.

My journey to mental healthcare

I began accruing my clinical hours for licensure on 10/30/2000 at College Hospital Costa Mesa, 301 Victoria Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92627. I completed my hours on 12/15/2005. My path to mental healthcare has been driven by a passion for helping people improve their lives and well-being.

My goals for you

You are a strong, courageous person to make this first step towards improving your life. I respect what it takes to start this journey. Your path will be unique and empowering. My goal is to support you on this journey of growth and positive change.

My first session with you

In our first session, we will focus on building rapport and trust. I want to create a safe space for you to share your story, concerns, and goals. We'll discuss what brought you to therapy and how I can best support you. I look forward to working with you!
