I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years of therapy experience. My therapeutic approach to counseling is holistic and strength based. Holistic meaning that we, as individuals, are made up of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social strengths. When one or more of these “strengths” become weak, (from internal or external factors) we may suffer from depression, anxiety, and/or other stress related issues.
My job as a therapist is to help you find your inner strengths and develop new ones to “re-balance” your life! When we are balanced, we are strong and whole!
