I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania, with over 10 years of experience working with youth and families in a varieties of school settings (primary, secondary and university level). After earning my Masters in Social Work from the University of Connecticut, I worked in an alternative school setting. Most recently I worked as a consultant to the Hawaii Department of Education. I have experience working with clients in areas including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, conflict resolution, life skills, parenting skills, relationship dynamics, trauma.
My counseling style is both nurturing and supportive. Having worked with diverse populations, I feel strongly about creating a non-judgmental, open and understanding environment. Each person enters the counseling relationship with their own unique story and needs. It is essential to listen and learn, while supporting and empowering the individual to grow in a manner that bests fits them. Although I do not hold fast to any particular modality I do draw from a variety of different sources. The most influential are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Strengths Based Perspective, and Solution Focused Therapy.
I look forward to the opportuity to hear your story and work with you.
