I am an experienced and compassionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is committed to supporting others with anxiety, depression, and working through grief.

Do you feel like you need an ally or advocate in your life? Would you like someone to listen to you and help you reach your goals? If your goals include working with and befriending anxiety, depression, lack of self-esteem, and/or not sure of your life path, I can help. Additionally, if you are seeking assistance with increasing self-advocacy, assertiveness, and behavioral issues, I can help facilitate this process. If you are looking for a collaborative relationship with someone who is empathetic, compassionate, and relatable, I am happy to fill that role.
My specialty centers mostly around the use of Applied Behavior Analysis, assisting with decreasing maladaptive behaviors as well as employing appropriate replacement behaviors. I also utilize Acceptance an Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy methodologies.
Holding compassionate space for others is a cornerstone of my practice. Working with empathy, care, and collaboration with clients is my ultimate goal. Life is not a linear path and it is helpful to have a facilitator, guide, and ally along the way. I look forward to connecting with you and learning how I can best meet your needs.
