About Me

Hi! I'm Asa and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 4 years of experience providing psychotherapy. I have experience working with adolescents, adults and geriatrics, as well as extensive work with Veterans'. I work with people who are suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD and substance abuse disorders among other things. I also have extensive training and experience with grief and loss and working with those suffering from chronic/terminal illness.

I believe that everyone has unique strengths which can help them succeed in life and overcome obstacles that may come their way. Sometimes you need help to identify these strengths and utilize them in the most effective way to make changes in your life. That is where I use client centered approaches as well as cognitive-behavioral therapy to assist my clients in overcoming barriers to their happiness. Additionally, I have training in and utilize mindfulness based approaches to create change.

Personally, I love dogs! I have five, one of which is a certified therapy dog who I utilize with many clients.

Asa is an attentive listener, and I feel very supported by her. She has been very encouraging of my journey, and I know that when I write to her that she takes the time to understand my feelings, and asks questions to get to the deeper issue.

Asa has been extremely understanding with me and her insight into what I can do to help counteract some of my negative thoughts towards myself has been so helpful.
