I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been a practicing clinician for 4 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, familial issues, and ADHD. I have also provided services to individuals who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional trauma.
I take a personal approach to my counseling. I believe in taking a personal approach and building a strong relationship with clients in order to assist them through the storm. I utilize a cognitive behavioral, humanistic and strengths based counseling approach. Each therapeutic approach is personalized to the clients needs.
It takes strength to get help when needed. The first step is always the most difficult. If you are ready to to take that leap, I am here to help and empower you.
I look forward to working with you.
Additional areas of focus: Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, ADHD
