I am a licensed Master's Social Worker (Clinical Therapist). I have worked with individuals and families for seven years. I began my social work career working as a mentor with underprivileged youth. I continued on with school social work, working with special needs children and eventually moving onto therapy for community mental health agencies as well as working in several private practices. Additionally, I have experience providing mental health and behavioral assessments and case management services.
My treatment modalities include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Family Therapy, Play Therapy, Motivational Therapy, Crisis-Intervention, Grief Counseling and Life Coaching. I specialize in dealing with Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Stress Management, Anger Management, Family/Relationship conflict, Trauma and behavioral disorders.
I believe we are all masters of our own lives; we each hold the answers to questions and problems we may endure. Sometimes, we lose insight and need guidance to uncover our underlying knowledge or simply to cope with setbacks. My goal is to empower, educate and assist people to regain control of their lives. Seeking assistance can be difficult and takes courage; I provide a safe space, compassionate nature and empathetic attitude to really validate and wholeheartedly listen to all of your concerns. We will work together to figure out which approach may suit your needs and assist you in meeting your goals.
