About Me

Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Alaska who has worked with adult individuals for over 6 years.

I use a person-centered approach that focuses on YOUR needs and explores healthy positive changes YOU want to make in your life using mindfulness, CBT, meditation, and other problem-solving approaches and therapeutic techniques. I understand the importance of trust, respect, listening, and clear communication skills because you are a unique person encountering unique experiences.
I can teach you ways to manage chronic pain, lower depression and anxiety symptoms, work through traumatic events, explore changes in your life past and present, all in a supportive, caring, safe and confidential environment.

You can discover ways to make clear, positive decisions and live the life you deserve to live. With support, knowledge, and self-awareness you can learn how to heal, to apply self-empowerment, and add balance to your life.

I look forward to working with you.

She has been very helpful and I have been feeling more motivated since I've started having sessions every week. I feel comfortable talking to her and like I will actually be able to improve myself. Would absolutely recommend.
