About My Clients

I help teens, adults, and couples reclaim their power by building safe and fulfilling connections with oneself and others. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, chronic stress, or just not feeling yourself I look forward to supporting you on your wellness journey!

My Background and Approach

I am a Clinical Social Worker with more than ten years of experience specializing in helping adolescents, adults, and families to overcome anxiety, mood difficulties, chronic stress/ complex trauma, and relationship dynamics. Much of my experience has included serving as Clinical Director for various inpatient and outpatient settings as well as providing direct clinical services. I utilize an integrative approach tailored to your individual needs so you can achieve the best and happiest version of yourself! I utilize DBT, TF-CBT, ARC, Solution Focused, Relational, Mind-body connection, and Sensory strategies through a trauma informed lens. I also utilize Gottman Therapy and Emotionally Focused therapy when working with couples. ‚Äč

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We each have experiences that shape the way we view ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. I strive to create a warm and trusting environment, free of judgment, to promote a safe space for self-discovery and personal growth. I will support you through your transformation journey to break free from the pressures, life changes, and/or expectations placed upon you by family, society, culture, and most importantly YOURSELF!
