About Me

Recognizing that we are each here on our own journey there should be no shame when reaching out for help or guidance when times become overwhelming and seem unbearable. Find comfort in knowing that the difficulties and frustrations that accompany unexpected life transitions is a common reality for most of us.

I am a compassionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years experience working with individuals seeking help in one capacity or another. My career started off with serving the co-occuring population, transitioned into crisis management, and has evolved into working with individuals who struggle with addiction. I find much value in being able to support individuals who identify themselves as being at a vulnerable state in their personal journey. My treatment approach is most commonly Client-Centered Therapy, Solution Focused, and CBT which are treatment modalities that help to challenge symptoms of depression, poor self-worth, low confidence, anxiety, and inability to meet goals.

During sessions the objective is to provide a safe space for you to navigate our time together in a manner that best serves you, supports personal growth, and one that allows you to sustain your dignity and self-worth. With life consisting of unknowns and unwanted transitions, these challenges are often necessary so that we might continue to grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Allow me to help you through your personal process without judgement and with empathy.

Remember, the first step is typically the most challenging and you have already accomplished that part, so take time to bask in that! I truly hope to hear from you soon.
