I strive to empower individuals and children to overcome their personal struggles in life. I am especially passionate about women’s issues and have done tremendous work with women of varying ethnic groups and social economic background. My love for children also leads me to continuously strive to be an advocate to help enhance their wellbeing.
I believe our inner relationship with one’s self and others is critical to helping us live a happy and thriving life.
As a licensed clinical social worker, I use clinical testing and evidence-based interventions. I offer individual therapy for anxiety, depression, trauma, adoption issues, change of life, spiritual counseling and finding one’s purpose in life. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2005 with a Master’s of Social Work. I am a mother of two loving and active boys ages 9 and 6. I enjoy playing golf with my children, cooking and volunteering.
Van is currently licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in the state of California.
