About Me

Hi there! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California. I earned my Master of Social Welfare (MSW) degree from the University of California at Berkeley (Cal) in 2004.

Throughout my 15 years of practice, I have worked with couples with a wide range of concerns including communication, trust, and parenting issues, as well as the challenges that come with the varying stages of a relationship. This experience has led me to focus on working with and helping my clients with a tailored approach that combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and strengths-based therapy models. I strive on bringing you to a point of becoming confident in your abilities to move forward in your relationship by minimizing triggers and leading you to tangible and realistic goals and outcomes. I work hard to ensure each person feels supported and heard as we work through issues impacting your relationship and believe this support helps with bringing back understanding and trust between each of you.

I offer a non-judgmental, empathic, and mindful approach with couples who are willing to accept the challenges that come with participating in counseling and have the desire to work towards and make positive changes as individuals and as a couple. Whether your challenges are recent or longstanding I am confident I can offer a perspective and additional support that allows you to gain the momentum you are seeking in order to move forward and start healing.

I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can message me anytime through BetterHelp. I usually check messages twice each day, Mondays through Fridays. I offer messaging, live chat and phone sessions with limited availability in the evenings. At this time, I am not able to provide services on the weekends. What you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so always check with me through a message first!
I look forward to working together!

Written by J.E. on Nov 30, 2019 after counseling with Zoe for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

We have had 2 video meetings with Zoe so far, and we feel comfortable with her already. This is a big deal to us because breaking the ice of doing counseling was a daunting task for me, but now it seems so easy. Thank you Zoe for listening to us both and helping us find a middle ground.
