I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with 20 years experience. My focus is always to work in collaboration with each client to develop a treatment plan that best addresses the areas they would like to work on. I accomplish this by developing a trusting therapeutic relationship, utilizing the client’s strengths, and offering guidance to strengthen motivation to reach their goals. I prefer to use techniques from several modalities including solution focused and cognitive behavioral therapy as well as motivational interviewing.
I received my Master’s Degree of Science in Social Administration after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work. I obtained an independent license to practice and have also received a supervisory designation.
My career has included working with everyone from teens to senior citizens, individuals, and groups but the majority of my experience is in grief and loss and bereavement.
I love working with people, but also enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs, playing pickleball, attending major league baseball games, and traveling.
Reaching out for support can be a difficult step, but I know one thing to be true, it does get better. The importance of feeling heard, being reflective, and taking time to work on you can not be underestimated. Take the first step!
