Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am an experienced clinical social worker/therapist devoted to helping adults and adolescents maneuver through their lives and relationships while managing their emotions/feelings in appropriate and healthy ways.
I am a therapist who is driven by empathy, a passion for helping people, a wide variety of social work training and work experiences, and a remarkably diverse background.
My treatment often focuses on families, recovery from substances, grief & loss therapy, parent coaching, guidance through the criminal justice system, and dealing with changes at any age or stage of life.
Often drawing on all of my prior experience working in the legal system, my own history of substance abuse and recovery, as well as being a mom and grandmother, I most often use a solution-focused model which includes Acceptance Commitment Therapy, CRAFT (Community Reinforcement Approach Family Therapy), and Life Management Skill Building.
"I truly want to help people figure out their own path, and navigate the complexities and hazards of modern day life."
After years of helping people while working for agencies, in 2022 I opened my own private practice and work directly with adolescents, adults and seniors who want to better manage their lives, and to learn how to thrive and enjoy life.
