Therapy is a place where one can learn to explore, express, and verbalize feelings and emotions in a safe and confidential setting, while working to effect positive change in the present, and hope for lasting change in the future. I do not take for granted the amount of courage and bravery to get to this part of reading bios and making decisions about whom to make an appointment with you. I place a high regard and respect for all of my clients, and it would be a great honor to sit across from you and to affirm and validate your experiences, and to collaboratively work together.
I am a clinical social worker with nearly 20 years of professional experience who has worked in a variety of settings and populations. I have a gentle and client centered approach that starts with establishing trust and rapport. Former clients have always shared how they like my collaborative and conversational approach to therapy, as well as establishing a calming and unassuming environment for therapy.
