About me

Hello! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with almost a decade of experience working with parents, young adults, and families with a variety of concerns. Adapting to life changes, parenting challenges, anxiety and depression, self harming thoughts and behaviors, trauma/abuse history, family conflict, and ADHD are areas that I feel most comfortable working with.
I take a client-centered, holistic approach using evidence based techniques that are solution focused and attachment based. I use mindfulness techniques to help clients and families feel calm and centered in their lives. I offer support in the moment during therapy sessions as well as help build techniques to use in your day to day activities. I believe therapy can be effective when both the client and therapist are committed to the process and the end goal. In therapy I am warm, understanding and non-judgemental. I can appreciate and respect your unique choices and goals and will support you through your journey, wherever that may be.

I'm so glad you've decided to take this step to seek help in your life at this time. Sometimes taking the first step is the hardest. I believe with gentle support and determination, anything is possible.

I look forward to meeting you!

Excellent services. In a time of need she was there to talk to and get a different view and support. I’m so glad I decided to do this.
