About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 6 plus years of experience in mental health. I have experience working with those who have experienced abuse/neglect, trauma, and grief/loss. I have helped people who are struggling with PTSD, depression, and anxiety.

I have additional training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I like to work with the client to identify goals and work towards those goals together. Sometimes this means a little homework in between sessions.

Personally I am a mother and widow. I have experienced some big joys and losses in my life. Through this experience I've gained some great insight into grief/loss and life's twists.

I look forward to working with you! Please send me a message if you have any questions.
