About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with a Doctorate in Social Work. My specialties include treatment of problems related to foster care, adoption, and family and other interpersonal relationships, issues with attachment, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have extensive experience working with individuals and families experiencing issues related to acute and chronic life stressors. Treatment approaches used are integrative and include cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused theories. My goal in using these approaches is to help understand your unique life experiences and how they have led to deficit-based feelings, emotions, and behaviors. Acknowledging the need to change is easy but following through is often very difficult. Finding the right person to help you through your journey can be draining but important in successfully accomplishing your goals. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable to another person is scary, but it is a strength that aids in the healing process. Let me be your partner as you journey towards living the life you deserve.
