LCSW in Texas & Arkansas As a Clinical Social Worker since 2000, my objective is to assist individuals in navigating life while providing support in developing healthy coping skills along the way. We will work together to identify new and existing personal strengths, exploring your goals in order to create a viable plan to aid in measurable growth through health and wellness challenges. In addition to my private practice (opened in 2003) my background includes employment as Adolescent Emergency Shelter Director, School Counselor, Hospice, Hospital Palliative Care LCSW and Bereavement Coordinator. Working with individuals, couples and families are all options as we look at the most beneficial way to address the challenges of life. We can explore your goals and objectives to determine which modality best meets your needs and adjust as needed.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
The initial session will be an opportunity to begin the process of gaining insight into the coping skills that are working, as well as those that are not, in a safe environment. In the sessions which follow we will work together to explore healthy adaptive skills to cope with the life's transitions, based on your needs.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My specialty is assisting with life's transitions, from early childhood to end-of life, including loss and grief.
