I have 25+ years of experience as a clinical social worker. I currently provide trauma-informed, individual therapy to adults with Anthem or Aetna insurance or self pay.

For 25+ years my clinical practice has focused on helping people live healthier, happier, more contented lives. Together, we can work to give you the tools you need to create the life you want and develop a plan to maintain it. When life is overwhelming and stressful or relationships are struggling, therapy can help. My practice offers a place where you can feel heard in a supportive, comfortable and non-judgmental environment. You can feel free to openly discuss whatever issues are bothering you.
I use DBT and mindfulness to teach more effective coping skills. My clients report decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety and greater satisfaction in their relationships. I am trained in EMDR therapy which helps clients transform negative beliefs rooted in past trauma or unpleasant life experiences so that they can move forward.
I believe wholeheartedly in each individual's immense capacity for growth and change. I bring this belief and enthusiasm to my work with my clients and from there create trusting, hopeful relationships. Together we will develop goals to help you create a more balanced and fulfilling life.
