Hello! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based out of South Carolina, but I also have licenses in Minnesota, Virginia, and Nevada. It is my goal to provide a nonjudgemental listening ear to you, while also aiding you to reframe some of the unhealthy thinking patterns that may be holding you back.

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

In our first session together, we'll do brief introductions and then discuss expectations for each of us. I would then like to hear from you what led you to seek therapy, as well as hear your three main goals for therapy to help guide us and our work together. We will end the session by exploring what course of action would be best for you going forward.

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

I feel as if my greatest strength is providing an empathetic, yet empowering approach. Life can get hard and some of us often resort to that negative self-talk and tearing ourselves down. This just makes us feel stuck and unable to grow. I feel the most fulfilled in my work when I can see a client's confidence increasing through therapy and how this often trickles out into others areas of their life.

My treatment methods

Strength-Based

A strengths based approach is the driving force behind my therapeutic style. Life can be hard, and often times, individuals can be their own worst enemy. Focusing more so on strengths can help with self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. Together, we will highlight your strengths and use those to empower you to work through areas of wanted change and growth.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been a focus in my practice for the past two years. First, I’ll provide some psychoeducation on how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected. We will then work together to examine and reframe some of your unhealthy thinking patterns that are negatively impacting you and preventing you from living the life of your dreams.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a central part of the therapy I provide. This is your life and therapeutic journey. I am here to listen to and empower you to make positive changes in your life. With that said, we will take it a pace you are comfortable with because change can be a source of anxiety. I am here to make this as positive of a journey as possible.
