14 years of experience
Solution oriented

First, let me congratulate you on taking the first steps toward a more fulfilling life! I can't wait to walk with you as you achieve your wellness goals. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida, Georgia, Kansas and Nevada and I hold a Clinical Supervisor Endorsement thru the National Association of Addiction Professionals. Originally from New Jersey, I attended Rutgers University and graduated with a BA in Psychology. I originally wanted to be a teacher, however, after teaching middle school kids for five years I felt I was being pulled to a different career where I could make more of a difference and assist people in living fuller, more rewarding lives. I decided to apply to the University of Georgia and sought a Master's degree in Social Work. I have been licensed for over 10+ years. I specialize in working with clients who struggle with healing from trauma, alcohol and substance abuse, depression and anxiety and adjusting to various stressful life situations. I believe that change happens when people are given the support they need to draw on their own strengths and realize their potential to live fulfilling, happy lives. I'm looking forward to working with you!

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

During your first session, we will take time to learn about you and your goals for treatment. Each session we will meet and discuss progress towards goals and identify whether adjustments are necessary.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I provide patient-centered care centered on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Harm Reduction, EMDR and Motivational Interviewing.

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

I specialize in providing the best, patient centered care.
