About me

You're probably curious to learn a bit about me and my style. Here goes..

I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Michigan and Virginia and have been working with individuals who are looking to make some kind of change in their life for the past 5 years. I began working with women who are survivors of domestic abuse and/or sexual assault and have also worked with individuals who are struggling with substance use and are looking to make a change in their life. Each and every person brings a unique set of strengths and talents to the table that they already have. I believe that each individual I work with has the chance to succeed with their goals and skills that we develop together in sessions

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness utilizing a trauma informed empowerment approach. I am also a kink aware therapist. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you. It would be an honor for me to be part of your journey

I've been with Daphne for more than 1.5 years and continue to make progress in the safe and supportive space that Daphne holds for me. I feel comfortable revealing my most vulnerable parts without embarrassment or shame.

Daphne is very thoughtful and takes the time to read through what I post in chat and journals, as well as poems; it must have taken her a lot of time to do that, since I was posting constantly. She was helpful in connecting me with resources to help both myself and my partner, and responding regularly, as well as being warm and encouraging in our video session. I was nervous about doing therapy but felt very comfortable with her.

A year later and I'm still surprised that my first match being Daphne was so well suited. I've suggested Better help to people since signing up myself and always stress the fact you can chop and change therapists til you find the right fit. We need more Daphnes in the world.
