7 years of experience

Greetings, It has always been my desire to serve and bring out the best in people. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Practitioner of The Healing Arts, with a Master’s degree in Social Work, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Growing up with two parents who struggled with addiction, I experienced anxiety and depression at an early age, and did not want to become a product of my environment. This led me to seek a different path. One where I could not only help myself, but a path where I could take every opportunity to help others as well. I embarked on this journey into the human psyche to gain a better understanding of behaviors, mental functioning, and how I can best serve clients in achieving their desired goals. I am here to assist those who are willing to roll up their sleeves and put in the work. You have taken a courageous first step; so let's see if we are a good fit, as I would be honored to embark on this journey in collaboration with you. I strive to build a genuine connection with my clients by fostering an environment of transparency and support. You are the expert in your journey, and I am here to assist.

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

In our first session together, we will start with brief introductions, and then dive into the specific challenges you are facing. As therapy is NOT a one size fits all, this will help us create a plan tailored just for you.

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

I have provided therapy for clients varying in ages from 6-100, as I have been a Child and Adolescent therapist, and I have also worked with patients on hospice and their grieving families. I have years of experience administering bio-psychosocial assessments, in order to identify the presenting issues, needs, concerns and strengths of each client. This makes creating individualized treatment plans to address emotional and behavioral issues clients may present with, that much simpler to address, especially since therapy is not one size fits all. It is my goal to assist you in stress reduction and mitigate any presenting symptoms, so that you can live your best life yet. Again, I would be honored to embark on this journey in collaboration with you. *Inquire within for sliding scale fees*

My treatment methods

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

In order to work on something, you must first be aware of its presence. This is why my modality of choice is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Throughout the duration of my life I have routinely participated in self-reflection and assessments, because it allows me to see all the moving parts in my life, which in turn has fostered an environment of growth throughout my life. There are always going to be challenges in life, but having the tools to get through them triumphantly makes all the difference.
