I get that sometimes life just sucks and when it happens we can feel alone, misunderstood, and stuck. It's easy to feel embarrassed by the circumstances we find ourselves in which make it even more difficult to reach out and ask for help. Kudos to you for starting out on this journey!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience in providing both inpatient and outpatient mental health services. I enjoy helping people overcome personal challenges and to improve their quality of life. I believe people are the expert of their own lives and the role of a counselor is to help them use this expertise to overcome challenges and reach their goals. I frequently use humor and laughter in my sessions and I encourage my clients to seek out opportunities to laugh. I want people to be active in the counseling process as I believe counseling is not a spectator sport. Additionally, I enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and spiritual/religious preferences. People generally tell me it doesn’t feel like therapy and meeting with me isn't as bad as they thought it would be.
Primary Issues treated include: Anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
I look forward to begin working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Depression
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy
