About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed to practice in both Florida and North Carolina. I would like to commend you for taking the brave first step to seek out support. I have primarily focused my practice on issues surrounding grief and loss, caregiver strain and coping with life's changes. I have also worked with new parents, pregnant women/newborns and children with emotional and behavioral disabilities. While working with these populations, I have have provided support related to family issues, anxiety, loneliness, separation, coping difficulties, loss, and re-discovering one's life purpose.
My role in a therapeutic relationship is to walk along side of you, providing non-judgmental support, information and guidance to promote your success. I will see you as an unique individual, with a unique set of strengths and challenges. I tend to be solution-focused in my practice. Together, we will develop a plan of care and establish some meaningful and attainable goals to improve your quality of life. My hope for you would be to increase your life satisfaction, overall wellbeing and to just feel better. I look forward to working with you.

Written by A.S. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Dory for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

So far working with Dory has been great. I’ve left both of our sessions feeling better and look forward to our continued work together.
