About me

I am a LCSW who specializes in treating children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience working with individuals facing emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues in various settings. My clinical experience has included working in-homes and in the community providing crisis assessment and support, as well as, individual, family, and parent psychotherapy. I offer brief short term therapy to individuals faced with a challenging time and new stressors. Utilizing a strengths-based and generalist approach, I specialize working with individuals who have or had suicidal ideation, self-harming behaviors, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, substance use, family stressors, and more.

In addition, I utilize a systems approach to include parents and family in treatment to support comprehensive healing. I incorporate the use of CBT, Motivational Interviewing, TF-CBT, strengths focused, and mindfulness techniques in my practice. I believe that everyone has the ability to create change in their lives and welcome all who are ready to begin their healing journey.
