More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 6
State: CA


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who believes that successful outcomes depend on a strong working alliance between therapist and client. With a strong foundation in place, we can then focus on the presenting issues. My goal is to help clients acquire, practice, and reinforce coping skills for dealing with life’s challenges. To do this, I draw from a variety of clinical perspectives, including Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior, Solution Focused, and Narrative therapy. I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds. I realize that in today’s busy world, scheduling during work hours can be a challenge. For that reason, I offer evening appointments as well as Saturdays.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Ed is awesome! I can tell he really cares, and he seems very genuine. He’s really helping me think more positively to overcome anxieties that I have.

Ed is a fantastic listener and a grounding presence in my life. Our therapy relationship is very collaborative and gives me new tools every session. I highly recommend Ed to anyone who has anxiety, depression, or any type of emotional regulation issues as he's very calming and also has a good sense of humor!

Ed is just great. He makes me feel normal for being human. He helps calm my racing thoughts by presenting alternative perspectives, even if I’m not receptive right away. When I experienced a trauma, he made himself available as soon as he could to help me through it. With his guidance, it ended up not becoming traumatic and I was able to move through it without any hang ups. He’s compassionate and open and I just really appreciate him.

I’ve had just three sessions with Ed and he has already helped me tremendously. I feel much more calm and, with tools he has given me, better able to handle stressful situations. It’s enjoyable just talking with him and I look forward to working with him further!

Ed is awesome. I don’t have much time for appointments so being able to message back and forth whenever either of us is free is perfect. We’re in different time zones and his response times are usually when I’m free which is great. He’s able to offer insight from an objective point of view and also give me suggestions on how to handle the issues with which I’m dealing.
