Great to meet you!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over a decade of experience working with individuals and families experiencing difficult life circumstance. I spent many years working as a hospice social worker where, in addition to helping with grief and end of life issues, I helped my clients navigate anxiety and depression, changes in lifestyle, family and relationship issues, caregiver fatigue, and loss in all its forms.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I'm straight forward and realistic and while I utilize evidenced-based strategies such as Cognitive-Behavioral and Solutions Focused therapies, above all I am guided by the knowledge that we are all human and sometimes need a bit of help and compassion to be our best selves. I want to help my clients gain the insight and self awareness they need to make positive changes in their life.
What you can expect from our first session
My clients will be met by a calm, compassionate therapist who is ready to listen and empower them. Transparency and communication are important and my clients can expect that I will make sure we're on the same path and headed toward the same goals.
