Hello, my name is Csilla (pronounced Chee la). I completed my Master's degree at UC-Berkeley's School of Social Welfare with a focus on Community Mental Health. I went on to work at Alameda County and, later, Placer County Behavioral Health programs. I provided public Mental Health services for fifteen years. For the last six years, I have provided therapy in a private setting and in a healthcare facility.
I have vast experience in working with individuals with depression, anxiety, and trauma. I hone in on triggers, memories, and negative self-esteem, and self-image and help people redefine and lessen their sensitivities. I have worked with many populations including ethnic, racial, and LGBTQ+, and approach individuals with humility and acceptance.

I have always been fascinated with people, various populations, and the effects of mental illness and trauma on the brain and body.
I like to create costumes. I have been a costumer for many shows in the Sacramento area for the last thirteen years.
I decompress with my family and my cats every evening. I learned to leave work at work several years ago.
Save The Children. After Katrina happened and people were not able to make it into New Orleans to assist the victims, Save The Children still found a way in. We donated a lot of formula, clothing, and diapers, which they were able to distribute to needy families.
I have two cats. One of my cats likes to get your attention and then when you give it to her, she pushes your head away with her paw. She's too funny.
