I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) certified as a Clinical Telemental Health Provider with 20 plus years of experience as a generalist practitioner focused on providing adults, couples and geriatric populations with the necessary tools and coping strategies to achieve optimal mental health.

I consider myself a Generalist Practitioner who has worked with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, domestic violence, difficulty adjusting to various situational stresses, eating disorders, grief and loss, and trauma. I currently work with adults, couples, and geriatric populations. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My approach to therapy is strength-based, holistic and direct vs. a non-directive approach. I highly encourage clients to feel comfortable with providing feedback throughout their therapy process and be actively engage in developing their unique treatment goals, as you are your own expert in your life.
