I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado. One of the major reasons for me entering this field was to be able to assist others in meeting their goals. I earned my Master of Social Work through the University of Iowa in 2014 with an emphasis on persons with severe and persistent mental illness. I have worked with groups, and individuals in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
My approach to working with patients is that this is your therapy and we will work on or towards whatever you chose. It is your life and my goal will be to help you discover/live your best life (defined by you). I specialize in working with adults experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, grief, addictions, and bipolar disorder. Theories or styles are CBT, EMDR, SFBT, and MI with a strengths-based approach, incorporating mindfulness.
Seeking help when we are struggling takes courage and I commend you for taking the first step. I look forward to working with you.
