Invest in yourself. You are worth it!
It is not about being connected. It is about feeling connected. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas and Licensed Independent Social Worker in Iowa. I currently reside in Texas. I received a Master of Science in Social Work at The University of Texas at Arlington in 2014. My undergraduate degree is in Applied Gerontology. My professional experience includes inpatient psychiatric treatment and emergency departments working with adults from age 18-95. I have engaged clients in Cognitive behavioral Therapy, Reminiscent Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Working to manage depression, anxiety, addiction, substance use/abuse, grief and/or suicidal ideation is my passion. I have motivated individuals, couples and families to engage in change. My goal is assisting people remain in the community and not become hospitalized. Together we can make that happen! There is no problem that does not have a solution. There are always options. I have an extensive "toolbox" and will encourage you to build one as well.
I am genuine and that will be evident the first time we meet. Allow me to help put 'life' back into living with a new perspective.
I care. Let's talk!
