I am an experienced Associate Clinical Social Worker who is dedicated to helping families and individuals navigate the stressors and traumas of life.

I believe that all behaviors are learned good or bad. Just as we teach our children to set and accomplish goals in life. We must be taught how to navigate life’s stressors. We all have the potential to heal ourselves if taught.

I have extensive experience empowering individuals with the insight needed to identify their emotional and/or psychological stressors and the tools necessary to cope with those stressors.

I encourage my clients to be in the consciousness of the self; ultimately, aiding their ability to access a more balanced, peaceful, and productive life. I have been successful in supporting families, couples, and individuals as they work through life issues, and family issues, identify ways to strengthen their relationships, and parent in a strategic manner.

I also have broad experience in treating trauma, juveniles with sexually offending behaviors, depression, anxiety, and behavior disorders. If you feel like the world's weight is on your shoulders, and the burden has become too heavy to carry, I can assist you on your journey.
