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.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is passionate about working with adolescents and adults to help them improve their lives.

Whether you are experiencing a loss, going through a life transition or just needing a listening ear, therapy can be instrumental in working through life's challenges. Seeking therapy can be hard but it is a sign you are ready to improve your life and your mental health!
I'm passionate about walking through difficult times with my clients and empowering them to make lasting changes.
