About Me

Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you are struggling with something important in your life. Finding the right person to help you through these challenges is vital. If you don't have a good connection with your therapist, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I want to provide you with some information about me, in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you. I believe every person has a unique story, and I focus on creating a plan together that makes sense. I use a patient focused model that is realistic for day to day life, and provides skills that can be taken outside of the sessions. I strive to create a safe environment where every individual feels accepted and is able to openly share their experiences and thoughts.

I have been a Social Worker for more than 20 years and have experience working with people from all different backgrounds and ages who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, issues with sleep, interpersonal relationships as well as the challenges of parenting. The feedback I receive from clients is that they find me to be caring and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them. You can expect me to work with you through whatever difficulties you are facing and help you learn more about yourself, the way you interact with the world.

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in video sessions so that we can get to know each other better and I am available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. I presently have limited availability and it is only in the evenings, but I check messages at least once during each weekday. My availability is currently limited, and I am only able to take members who are seeking sessions on weekday later evenings. If we correspond initially and our scheduling looks to be an issue or we are not a good match, I will request that you select an alternate therapist from the many choices here on BH

I know how hard it can be to find a therapist who you feel a connection with, and I assure you that you are in good hands.
