About me

Greetings! I completed my undergraduate and graduate work (MSW) in the field of Social Work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have worked in a clinical setting for the last seven years and have experience in working with individuals who are dealing with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, abuse, parenting, and relationships.

I am deeply attuned to the emotions of others and encourage observation of symbolism in a person’s life. I value the inherent worth and goodness of all beings and am here to create a safe and accepting environment in which my clients feel supported on their psychological, emotional, and interpersonal paths. I have had a personally profound experience in 10 years of psychoanalytical work and believe in the capacity of the mind, body, and spirit to heal and thrive. I compassionately challenge my clients to strive for their desired goals utilizing mindfulness, somatic, and cognitive tools to support them as they navigate life.

You are taking a brave step to access support and resources in pursuing continued growth and wellness. I look forward to connecting with you and helping you to build a life that aligns with your desires and deepest sense of who you are. I am so glad that you are here!
