About Me

I have dedicated 20 years working in the field of Social Work and 16+ years providing Psychotherapy to Adolescents, Adults, and the Geriatric populations. I believe in life's journey, we often see images of ourselves, some whole and some shattered. I believe there is hope for those images to become whole again. My approach with each client is based on the establishment of a therapeutic alliance and awareness gained through Psychoeducation. This is the foundation in which a therapeutic journey can begin and help the client identify strategies needed to build a lifelong accessible tool box for improving their overall quality of life.
