Hi! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I graduated with my Master's Degree for the University of South Florida. I have experience working with adult and adolescents dealing with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, self-esteem, life changes and other challenges. I specialize in working with women and men who are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, negative self-image. I work with clients to help them discover their true self, underneath the expectations they have placed on themselves or feel pressure from others. I will meet you where you are in your journey, and will facilitate the changes to help you be a happier and healthier version of yourself.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together we will get to know each other so that we can both feel comfortable working together. We will discuss specific challenges you are currently facing and how they are impacting your life. We will discuss your current strengths and coping skills so we can build on them. I will also ask what your goals are for therapy. If you're not sure yet that is okay, but it will be important fro you to think about before our second session. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in future sessions.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I use a holistic approach to help women and men work through the challenges of depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship issues. I use a combination of mindfulness and strengths-based techniques to help clients discover their true selves. I believe therapy is not one-size-fits-all and should be tailored to fit the individual needs of the client.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I have worked with clients in an outpatient setting as well as an inpatient setting to address both their mental health and substance use challenges.
