Welcome! I am a licensed independent clinical social worker with over 15 years of experience working with adults in outpatient mental health, partial hospital, and inpatient medical settings. My specialties include anxiety disorders, navigating chronic illness, and supporting clients through losses and transitions of all kinds. Depending on your needs, we will likely incorporate techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness. Most of all, I am here to listen, support, and guide you through life stressors, including anxiety, grief, depression, chronic illness, and other losses and transitions in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.

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

In our first session, we'll talk about what challenges you're experiencing and what you are hoping to get out of therapy. You'll also have a chance to ask me any questions you may have about the therapy process. As our work progresses, you'll gain new insights and skills to help you better manage life's stressors. I hope you may also come away with a renewed sense of meaning, purpose, and groundedness.

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

My style is calm, empathetic, and open. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to bring whatever is on your mind.

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

ACT helps you move through difficult experiences and emotions, and not let them hold you back from honoring your values and achieving your goals. It provides important tools to help you live a meaningful life.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I've used CBT in my practice for many years to help clients take a step back and identify thoughts, feelings and behaviors and make positive changes.

Grief Therapy

With over ten years of experience working with people with chronic and life limiting illnesses and their families, I specialize in supportive therapy for losses and transitions of all kinds.
