As a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years of experience in the areas of mental health, I specialize in working with various populations including adolescents, young and older adults and their families. I assist clients in identifying their needs and help them to figure out out “the why” in situations where they feel stuck.
My ability to recognize that we are all unique individuals due to our background and life experiences contributes to my practice style. Using a strengths-based approach, I work with clients to help them uncover and identify their strengths and abilities. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skill building techniques, clients are able learn tools to use in their day to day experiences. It is my hope that in session clients feel therapy is a safe and comfortable space to be open, honest, feel confident and ultimately empowered.
