I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 years in the field.

I have a down to earth balanced approach and do my best to engage people in distress in a calm and productive manner. My approach is to work with clients at their own pace on the goals they want to work on. My experience includes individual, family, couples and group therapy, both in the home and in an outpatient practice setting, making me a well-rounded, seasoned clinician.
My practice accepts adults, couples, adolescents and children aged 12 and up. I also accept clients in recovery and clients with chronic pain. Individual, family, and couples therapy is available. I also provide supervision to newly licensed clinicians wanting peer supervision and supervision towards full licensure.
My training includes but is not limited to evidence-based treatment models, such as EMDR, Structural Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. We develop a treatment plan together based on what it is that you want to work on.
