I am a licensed clinical social worker in Maine with over 6 years of experience working as a therapist with individuals and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, trauma, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines Cognitive-Behavioral, Person-Centered, Strength-Based, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Positive Parenting, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
