Registered Associate Clinical Social Worker #100157

Under the Supervision of Andrea Najemy LMFT# 90985


I am passionate about joining clients on their journeys to increase their overall well-being. I enjoy working with children (7+), pre-teens, teens, college students, and emerging adults. During these phases of life, transition is constant. Many clients I see begin therapy due to overwhelming feelings or disruptive behaviors that interrupt their daily lives. I help my clients identify practical solutions to address daily challenges in addition to building positive communication skills, setting needed boundaries, and building strong family relationships/friendships.

I am intentional about providing a non-judgmental and supportive environment to assist clients with building insight into their strengths as well as areas of their lives where they would like to make changes. I use an eclectic approach to tailor sessions and integrate techniques based on the unique needs of each client. My approach supports building healthy attachments and expression of emotion. I enjoy being creative and collaborating with clients during sessions to address what is most important to them!

I am currently seeing clients virtually via video and in-person at our Santa Monica location. Our office is Out-of-Network with insurance, however, we offer a special concierge service in which we will file all claims for you so you don’t have to! Please feel free to reach out via email and I’ll get back to you shortly! I am happy to provide a free 15 min phone consultation to determine if we are a good fit!
