Hi there! I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker, and have been a psychotherapist for 15 years. I have helped individuals from diverse backgrounds, who have struggled with various circumstances and issues which have affected the quality of their lives. I believe that therapy offers a unique and special relationship that is built on trust, understanding, honesty and compassion.
My approach is collaborative and hands-on, but allowing you to set the pace that is comfortable for you, and determine the path of your work. I will be alongside providing encouragement, guidance, and practical approaches to help you challenge and deal with what may be impacting your life presently. I have helped people struggling with depression, social/anxiety, low self worth/esteem, obsessions and compulsions , relationship/marital issues, trauma, and confidence issues, among others.
I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which will help you to apply various techniques to better understand yourself, and work with you to develop insight, courage, strength, and solutions to overcome the obstacles you are dealing with. I strive to make this experience rewarding, engaging, comfortable and even fun.
I welcome the opportunity and privilege to work with you, and help you attain a life of value, happiness, and stability.
