During my decade as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have helped clients of all backgrounds cope with trauma and improve their lives. I have helped clients of all backgrounds cope with trauma and improve their lives. My specialties include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma/abuse, parenting concerns, and such women's health issues as infertility, maternal depression, and PCOS. My practice also concentrates on stress management and navigating issues related to one's family of origin. Cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness lie at the heart of my therapeutic approach. I value being present in the moment with an individual as they learn to cope with their struggle.
Realizing that one size does not fit all, I emphasize a multi-culturally competent, humanistic, and person-centered approach that is goal-centered, strengths-based, and holistic. I am passionate about neurodevelopment and enjoy incorporating brain science into my work. I embrace the idea that a sense of humor can help in healing.
Life can be difficult and traumatic. But I believe we have a saving grace: our innate wiring for connection. I consider a strong therapeutic relationship to be the foundation for positive change. I hope to build relationships that begin with an open mind and honest acceptance of where you are in life. You are worthy of the positive change you seek.
