Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience in working with individuals from children to geriatrics. My experience includes a wide variety of topics including anxiety, stress management, depression, trauma, grief/anticipatory grief, attachment concerns, adjustment and life changes. My approach with clients is compassionate and respectful, using a solution focus approach. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Systems Perspective, and Psychodynamic therapy. Ultimately, our work together is customized to meet your individual needs and goals at a pace and style you are comfortable with. I believe in starting at the first step and allowing your progress and courage to guide you on your therapeutic journey. I am a huge advocate for the use of tangible tools such as worksheets, journaling, self assessments and more to ensure that each individual's learning style and approach is taken into consideration. I look forward to hearing your goals and challenges, and working together on a plan that is specific to you!
