Hello, and welcome to Better Help! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Delaware and a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) in Pennsylvania. I have been a licensed Social Worker for over 13 years specializing in grief and loss, anxiety and depression, addictions counseling for families affected by addiction and most recently caregiver burnout and compassion fatigue. I have worked with clients of all ages including adolescents’, adults and older adults. My counseling style comes from a strengths-based perspective with a focus on assisting my clients in recognizing the many strengths they already possess while helping them to adapt those strengths to better manage the current crisis or situation they may be experiencing. I adapt my practice style to fit the needs of each client and will adjust my approach based on the goals and outcomes experienced throughout the therapeutic journey.
Asking for help is never easy but here you are, and you should be proud of yourself for taking this first step. I would like to assist you in this journey as you allow yourself to discover the strengths that you possess and the tools you can use to become a stronger healthier you!
