Life can present challenges in dynamic ways. Having appropriate and valuable supports and tools can help us navigate these hardships. I believe that healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honesty, trust, compassion and non judgement. Know that you do not have to do it alone. Deciding to engage professional support is a courageous stride in prioritizing your health and well being.
As a social work professional, I provide compassionate, client centered therapy. I am passionate about helping others realize their fullest potential. “The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own” -Benjamin Desraeli.
My background includes work in community mental health and healthcare networks. I have worked with individuals and families, including children, adults and elderly populations. I draw from a variety of evidenced based practices and interventions to create a tailored approach for each individual and situation.
I am open, encouraging, warm and direct, combining my experience, education, creativity, and down to earth personality in my therapy approach.
I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
