School doors may be closed, but our virtual office is open


This space is for you to have a one-stop-shop for quicker access to overall wellness support, confidential mental health support, support groups available, and resources.  Check back regularly to see what's new!



I'm Venice High's Psychiatric Social Worker, aka a mental health counselor.  I have been working at VHS since 2018 and have been a counselor/therapist for over 5 years. It is my calling in life and my passion!


I offer confidential counseling services to all VHS students and families. I am here Monday-Friday and am available by appointment. 

On a more personal note, some facts about me: I love Chipotle, I am a 1st generation college graduate and I just got my motorcycle license in 2020.  I also am an advocate for social justice and am very committed to serving my community. Also, I'm an SMC and CSUN alumni! Shoutout to transfer students!
