About me

Are you experiencing challenging times in life that contribute to you feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, and/or frustrated as a result of you feeling as if no one understands? Are you tired of trying to navigate life challenges on your own but your efforts are to no avail? Are you looking to enhance the quality of your life but just don't have the needed supports in place to assist you with devising a plan to do so?

Let me assist you! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have been afforded the opportunity to work with people providing therapy using multiple modalities to assist with various issues. I've learned to recognize the various things that contribute to a lack of engagement and believe in the benefits of utilizing various treatment modalities and skills that allow me to provide a safe and non-judgmental space. I am committed to making our therapeutic journey an experience that will provoke growth, improve self-esteem, increase problem-solving skills, improve future plans, and reduce overall mental health symptoms while exploring and processing feelings and emotions. My goal is to empower with therapeutic guidance, psychoeducation, coping mechanisms, and the skills required to develop the ability to cope with life challenges effectively.

If a 45-minute session does not fit your needs and you prefer a 30-minute slot, please message me to see if I can fit your schedule.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I love her! She’s the first therapist I’ve had that makes me excited for therapy. She’s a wonderful listener and helps me find solutions to my issues.
