Great to meet you!

I am a clinical Social Worker with over 30 years experience working with individuals and young adults to help address issues of depression, anxiety and substance abuse.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My approach to therapy is directed by you. I will work with you to help you decide what you would like to change. My practice is DBT informed, CBT focused using Motivational Interview techniques to help make changes to improve outcomes.

What you can expect from our first session

Do you feel stuck with where you see yourself in relationship to your goals and values? I have worked with individuals who feel the same way you do and have helped them create a healthier life. I believe we are all on a journey here in our lives and at times we meet roadblocks on our journey. I will work with you to look at those roadblocks, help decide what to do with them so you can continue on your journey.
