I am an experienced clinical social worker dedicated to helping teens and adults with a variety of life's stressors from anxiety and depression to learning challenges and loss. I am passionate about helping people navigate through life's challenges from specific issues like job or relationship stress, low self esteem or broader struggles such as feeling stuck or undervalued.

Using an eclectic approach, coupled with care and compassion, I work with adolescents and adults in addressing a variety of issues. Developing trust is key in a therapeutic relationship. I work collaboratively with you and/or your child to help you reach your goals, addressing issues such as: anxiety, depression, social communication, emotional regulation, substance abuse, disordered eating, relationship issues, spirituality, and trauma. I have vast experience helping children with learning differences with a strong understanding neuropsychological testing results, and can help with the development of IEP goals and benchmarks.
I have 20+years of experience using a client-centered, strengths-based approach. With an emphasis on developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, I incorporate meditation and mindfulness techniques on a regular basis. I also use solution focused therapy when appropriate.
