I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with a Master of Social Work in Clinical Social from St. Catherine University and The University of St. Thomas.
How do you feel about yourself? It’s important to realize how you treat yourself because if we do not have a good relationship with ourselves, it's difficult to change and grow. It can take a tremendous amount of courage to acknowledge what is not serving you well, to reach out for assistance, and to share those deeply personal issues. I see it as an honor to be a trusted witness and support to those who cross my doorstep.
Those who are interested in taking a creative approach in therapy are welcome. Maybe you have writer’s block or you are stuck in your creativity. When working with individuals, couples and families, I utilize my experience in the arts to help individuals express things creatively that they may be hard to express verbally.
