I am an LCSW-R, practicing for over 25 years. I have worked with women, adolescents, and children. My experience includes working with people dealing with depression, anxiety, marital conflict, relationship issues, parenting problems, stress, trauma, and family conflict.

Congratulations on taking the initial step towards self-care. The most important aspect of therapy is building a solid relationship. Therapy can offer insight, relief, and hope, especially when you feel there is no place to turn. Your therapist should be your partner in this process; your safe space where you can open up without feeling judged. I will provide you with that safe space, a place to share your feelings and experiences and not feel judged. Once I can do this, then the work begins. The therapeutic alliance is critical to any successful outcome in treatment. My therapeutic style is nurturing and warm. I like interactive sessions, and it is my goal for all my clients to feel welcomed and comfortable.
