About me

Hello, I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with Supervisory Designation (LISW-S). I have over 10 yrs of direct mental health experience. I am grounded in a commitment to social justice, personal well-being, and the development of the whole person. I focus on depression, anxiety, stress, life changes and parenting (especially for those who care for individuals w/special needs). Typical areas of concern are emotional well-being, managing stress, relationship or family issues, identifying/exploring patterns and making desired changes. I work with clients through the process of becoming healthy individuals, offering them a place to receive both nurture and compassionate challenge. My goals are to assist individuals in the areas of 1) Self-Empowerment and Acceptance, 2) Decision-making, 3) Developing and implementing coping skills, 4) Identifying and using internal and external resources and 5) Improved positive well-being. I work with individuals (straight or LGBTQIA). I am highly competent in a variety of cultures, religions, and social and interpersonal issues. My practice core values are:
1) Autonomy - Self-determination; behavior an individual stands behind and, if reflective, would endorse and value. Autonomy is the process of doing something by one’s own decision or initiative.
2) Competence - Providing high quality, professional counseling services provided by a qualified LISW-S.
3) Effectiveness - A commitment to on-going education. It is knowing, understanding and implementing the best treatment practices available, practicing within my areas of expertise, and referring clients to other resources whenever it is in their best interest.
4) Integrity - Upholding a professional ethic regarding respect, privacy and confidentiality.
5) Respect & Diversity - Recognizing all aspects of our humanity and honor that all of these aspects remain salient to every life. This includes age, physical abilities and cognitive talents, socioeconomic status, political viewpoints, religious/spiritual and/or philosophical beliefs, sexuality, gender, racial/ethnic identities, and other unique characteristics.

I offer a safe and non-judgmental place, and I would be happy to work with you.
