I encourage you to send a Live Chat request early in our work together. If I am available I will gladly accept for a 10-15 minute get-to-know you chat; I believe that can help judge if I am good fit for you more quickly than the initial messages back and forth. Once our work begins in earnest we can decide together how often to message and chat.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and my background includes extensive field experience in hospice care. I enjoy working with individuals coping with chronic or life limiting illness, caregivers seeking to learn coping skills to prevent burnout, supporting people through their personal grief & bereavement experience, and folks adjusting to different life roles related to aging or illness. I also have experience treating the complexities of trauma response, domestic violence, abuse, and hoarding behavior.
I believe in person-centered, self-directed care. You are the expert in your own life and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. My approach includes evidenced based techniques like Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Trauma Informed, Dignity Therapy, and Solution Focused counseling. I also value the importance of developing and strengthening a personal narrative through psychodynamic, supportive therapy and am a strong supporter of the growing Peer Recovery movement. Together we will discuss your preferences, map out your goals, and determine the best way I can approach our counseling relationship in order for you to meet them.
Technology has the capacity to help us all learn how to integrate healthy self-care into our busy lives. BetterHelp may not be the only support you access, but it can be an important piece of your life. Congratulations on taking a courageous step toward recovery and for being a pioneer in the virtual counseling arena. If you choose to work with me as your BetterHelp counselor, I look forward to joining your support network.
