About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist in various inpatient and outpatient settings. I have worked with clients on multiple concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, parenting problems, career, and life transition challenges. In addition, I have extensive experience in working with clients who struggle with behaviors and symptoms related to obsessive-compulsive disorders, attention deficit, and hyperactivity disorders such as ADD and ADHD.

My therapeutic approach varies but is always client-centered. Through a strengths-based and solutions-focused lens, I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals. For example, through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I assist clients in exploring relationships among thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to aid in discovering dysfunctional thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. Using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), I support clients through developing skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation to move clients towards a life involving the capacity for experiencing joy and freedom.

It takes courage and effort to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and if you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you.
