About me

Are you overwhelmed and stressed most of the time? Are your thoughts filled with constant worries? Do you get panic attacks and intrusive thoughts? There is HOPE for a life with greater PEACE. It is possible to learn to live in the present moment without constant worries, ruminations, or intrusive thoughts. I can help you work toward your goals, provide evidence based treatment, and be a support to you in finding rest from the daily stress and anxiety you have been experiencing.

Hello! I am a Clinical Social Worker specializing in anxiety with experience also in helping clients with depression, OCD, mood disorders, stressful life transitions, and postpartum mood disorders. I have been a social worker for over 11 years helping people in some of the hardest moments of their lives. I have experience in counseling, mental crisis assessment in ERs, and complex medical discharge planning.

I work from a whole person perspective, where I take into consideration how all parts of your life (biological, psychological, social, and spiritual) affect your mental health. We will review your concerns, symptoms, current stresses, as well as your habits in effort to see where you would like to direct your goals. I often incorporate mindfulness practices, exposure response treatment, and cognitive behavioral therapy to help you get closer to where you would like to be. I strive to support you in an effective way so that you don't have to be in therapy forever!

I am a person that is approachable and down to earth. I have been told that I am easy to talk to, that I explain things in ways that are easy to understand, and that I am good at looking at the whole picture.

I am a licensed therapist, and I am also a Christian. I offer Christian Counseling as an option to clients who are interested in incorporating their Christian faith. My faith informs my practice, but I in no way will force my faith on any client.
