I am an independently licensed Social Worker that has been practicing therapy since 2014 but have been in the social work field since 2005. I have experience in medical, mental health and substance use treatment settings, working with diverse populations in community mental health agencies, healthcare, outpatient and inpatient treatment settings. In addition to my experience, I have significant training in Trauma Informed Care as a Certified Trainer, certification as a trauma professional, program development and implementation.
My counseling style is warm and compassionate. I want anyone I work with to be aware of their full potential and assist them in getting there. Life can be hard enough, therapy doesn't have to be. I pull from many different therapy styles which include; cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness, solution focused, strengths based and acceptance and commitment therapy.
I am here to support your goals and assist in managing the challenges that may arise.
I look forward to working with you!
