About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker( LCSW) with a Master's Degree in Social Work. My therapy is based on the principle of empathetic, warm, and understanding communication between the client and myself. I have over 7 years of experience assisting others with their emotional and psychological needs on their own journey to growth. I specialize in anxiety, depression, chronic illness, foster care related issues. I have also helped many clients who have experienced trauma including physical trauma, sexual trauma, substance abuse, addiction, and emotional abuse.

I have extensive background in evidenced-based therapies, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoeducation, motivational interviewing and mindfulness practice. I will tailor my approach towards the client based on the client's own preferences and needs in therapy. Throughout our sessions, I will help you formulate various coping strategies and goals to help you grow.

If you ever feel that you are in need of urgent help or in a crisis, please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day; or 911. This platform currently does not have any emergency services available, so I want to ensure that you have the proper resources to get the help you need in the event of crisis.

It takes an incredible amount of courage and awareness to reach out for help. My ultimate goal is to guide you in the direction of healing and personal growth; if you feel that you are ready, I will be here to unconditionally support and empower you every step of the way.
