Great to meet you!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Doctorate degree in Social Work with a wealth of experiencing in psychotherapy. I have worked with clients from a wide range of concerns including: post-traumatic strep, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, family conflict, grief and loss, and emotional abuse. Additionally, I have worked in the field of social work and mental health for over 20 years assisting individuals and families.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My counseling style is empathetic, mindful, and client centered, yet direct and straight forward. I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity but most importantly I pride myself on demonstrating compassion for all and being sensitive to the needs of others.

What you can expect from our first session

It takes a great deal of courage to seek professional help and to implement change. However, if you are ready to take next steps to begin living a more fulfilling and self-empowered lifestyle. I am committed to providing guidance along the way.
