About me

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who has been working with adults and children dealing with mental health issues for the past 20 years. I decided to further my education and have been a licensed therapist for the past 7 years and have enjoyed working with a variety of people in different settings. I feel that forming a connection is the foundation for a successful treatment relationship. I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, adhd, anger issues, struggles with self esteem, organization and wellness management.

During my practice, I have recognized how people may struggle to recognize their own strengths and are searching for a better understanding of themselves and their environment. I utilize a balance of mind approach that involves a number of techniques to help feel comfortable with ourselves and in working towards wellness goals. I enjoy getting to know people and would really look forward to having a positive therapeutic interaction with you in the future.

Daryl has been a great support system through my mental health and tough year of grief. He has been guiding me through my self loathing and judgment to the otherside and so far, I can't thank him enough.

Daryl is so great to work with. He definitely understands what I’m going through and helps me clear my mind of unproductive thinking/unhealthy thinking so that my goals can be more visible. He is a really good sounding board to discuss problems and really guides me in my thinking to remind me what to prioritize and what’s important to me. I definitely recommend him.

Over the past few months Daryl has really helped me locate the sources of my anxiety and taught me ways to manage them in healthy realistic ways. From the beginning the talks with Daryl have always felt genuine, like he was a friend and really cared. Give him a chance to help make a difference in your life.
