I am a caring and compassionate clinical social worker with 20 + years of experience serving children, adolescents, and adults. When people experience significant life stressors or trauma, their lives often begin to unravel, and they find it difficult to function. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with the daily stressors of life, depression, anxiety, and trauma. I’m also passionate about working to improve the social and emotional development of young people, and often work with parents who need support in managing their children’s challenging behaviors.
My goal is to equip clients with tools to optimize level of functioning and enhance their quality of life. I aim to create a warm, non-judgmental, safe environment and strive to work collaboratively with my clients to cultivate a strong therapeutic relationship. I connect deeply with my clients, helping them to feel heard, understood, and appreciated.
I enjoy guiding people to identify & carry out their own authentic solutions; find strategies to get their needs met; and foster meaningful, fulfilling relationships. I thrive on educating clients and helping them use safe coping skills to break out of unhealthy patterns, feel empowered & strong. You're not alone. I'm here for you, so how can I help?
