About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience in individual and family therapy, specializing in treating adults, children and adolescents. My style is a collaborative and dynamic Strengths Based approach incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused and Systemic (Family) therapies. We all need guidance and support throughout life, now more than ever. I view therapy as a collaborative process in which my client's allow me to assist them on their journey towards change.
How we think directly impacts how we feel and therefore how we act, the decisions we make and the way we approach our lives on a daily basis. There are many elements in our life experience that shape how we think and feel. When we understand the how and why of our thinking, we can then start reshaping our thoughts and changing how we feel.
'Where there is life, there is hope... and where there is hope, all things are possible.'
