I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Arizona. I have worked twenty years as a therapist in a variety of settings, including cancer support and hospice. My experience includes work with clients whose issues include depression, anxiety, stress, aging and other changes of life, trauma, abuse and self-esteem with related issues. Other areas in which I have counseled clients are career challenges, family conflict and other relationship (traditional and non-traditional) issues, grief and loss, caregiving and end of life guidance.
My counseling style is direct, yet warm and collaborative. I utilize the modalities of Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered and Mindfulness Therapy to help clients become the best version of themselves. I understand the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship that is genuine and promotes growth. I believe in and respect every client's ability to achieve control in their lives. I do not "fix" clients. I respectfully guide the client to the development and use of tools and skills that promote better emotional health.
