6 years of experience

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina. I received my Master of Social Work from Aurora University outside of Chicago, Illinois and have worked in the mental health field for the past 7 years in a variety of settings. I currently work with young adults with anxiety, depression, and adjustment concerns.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, you can expect to get to know how I show up in the therapeutic space and we will talk more about the presenting problems through a short assessment. This will help us to collaborate on a good plan together to help resolve some of the problems that are arising.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

You can expect me to check in to the here and now by asking how our conversations feel for you in the present. I have worked well with clients when we decide together what your goals may be and we work through them by 1) identifying what currently triggers the stress, 2) exploring what feelings, sensations, and narrative our brain tells us during the stress, and 3) coming up with a tailored plan to help you maneuver through the stress in a new way.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I utilize a CBT framework to address some symptoms of anxiety, including but not limited to, providing psychoeducation on the connection between cognition, emotions, and behaviors (along with physiological responses), identifying cognitive distortions, and introducing and practicing reframing.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

I have utilized DBT practices since first entering the field years ago. Using DBT in practice now can include learning about dialectics and acceptance, introducing basic mindfulness skills as a foundational practice, teaching and practicing skills within the other 3 modules of DBT -emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I have practiced from a solution focused/brief therapy model for a few years and work with clients to identify attuned coping skills and problem-solving skills that are effective for them
