I am a clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience. I am also a certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment professional as well as a Certified Telemental Health provider, informed by evidenced based practices such a Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Utilizing these and other evidenced based practices as well as psychoeducation and goal setting, I will work alongside you to promote long-term symptom reduction and balance in your social (work, school, family) and emotional functioning.

I am both inspired by and respectful of the time, courage and commitment it takes for you to engage in a therapeutic relationship, especially via telehealth. Utilizing a strength’s-based approach, I believe helping you to set realistic and achievable goals is pivotal to a successful outcome of self-sufficiency and self-care. Working from a place of compassion, flexibility and sensitivity, I also recognize and incorporate in treatment the importance of different life factors (e.g., family, cultural and environment) that heavily influence us socially and emotionally and our abilities to cope with challenges. The fact that you are taking this step to learn about me, demonstrates important core values of self-care and preservation, whether it be for you or a loved one. These values are an important foundation of the therapeutic relationship which will lead to a positive alliance in which your overall health, growth and healing can take place.
