I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Doctoral Candidate with clinical expertise in treating anxiety, depression, addiction, PTSD, trauma, bi-polar disorder, and chronic medical conditions exacerbated by mental health. I provide an interactive therapeutic style for individuals, couples, and families. To do this, I integrate various methodologies and techniques to offer a personalized client centered approach while utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, spirituality, motivational interviewing, and solution focused strategies inclusive of compassion and understanding. It is my belief that all people are born precious and free. Along the way, life presents challenges that could cause an individual to feel unfulfilled, empty, unseen, unheard, and misunderstood. Together, you and I will discover the root cause of the pain and implement a plan for healing. I am here to help you examine and explore issues that make you feel stuck. I understand that each person is the driver of their own life and has within them the strength to overcome obstacles. I encourage introspection and observation of behavior, rather than make judgement or engage in negative self- criticism. I believe therapy can be life changing!
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together, we’ll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you’re facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I offer individual and couples therapy to those struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, chronic stress, chronic medical conditions, grief or loss, relational, parenting, divorce, and/or life adjustments.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My therapeutic approach is based upon your individual goals. I understand reaching out can be scary but if you take the first step, we can take the rest together.
