I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Maine with more than 15 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with depression, stress and anxiety, coping with life changes, motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I work with couples to repair trust, improve communication, and strengthen their emotional intimacy with each other.
My approach is individualized and specific to your own personal needs and wants. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.
