About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker who has worked with adults of all ages. My experience includes immediate crisis support to structured outpatient programs focused on resource development and stress management. Specific issues I've assisted clients with have included depression, anxiety, codependency, relationship building, and managing change. Co-occurring issues have included substance abuse and a history of trauma.

My therapeutic style is client-centered and solution-focused to understand issues from the individual's point of view and develop treatment based on client-identified goals. Supportive tools are provided based on the individual's preferences. Collaboration and feedback throughout the process is important so the pace and expectations of therapy are realistic.

I look forward to meeting you and providing the support you're seeking!

karin came right on time.
she was what i needed and continues to be a bright spot in my life.
she holds space for whatever i need to share and helps foster a rich and deep exploration during every conversation.
i leave our time with a more expansive perspective, resolution when i need it, and something to marinate on.
i am better for her.

Work with me!
