Licensed Masters Social Worker with over 19 years of experience working in mental health, substance abuse, and medical social work. I enjoy working with individuals attempting to cope with an array of concerns including depression, anxiety, family or relationship issues, career challenges, substance abuse, and self-esteem.
My therapy style is transparent and empathetic. Difficult questions about thoughts and feelings are necessary to assist in getting to the root of those issues that are depriving us from a happy and healthy life. My expectations from those I serve are transparency, trust, and respect. I am a solution-focused therapist who emphasizes on strengths. I use motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral therapy approaches. Ultimately, my goal is your goal, and we will develop a treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
It takes courage to take the first steps towards being a happier, healthier version of you. I am here to support and empower you do just that!
Limited Licensed Masters Social Worker with a desire to help you and your loved ones become the best version of yourselves. As a therapist, I have a background in substance abuse, outpatient therapy, inpatient mental health, and crisis intervention.
I strive to create a comfortable, calm, and inviting environment where everyone can feel safe and talk freely. I aim to work together to help you achieve your goals and overcome life's adversities. You are the expert on your life. Therapy can offer alternative perspectives and allow you to make decisions that best resonate with you.
As humans, we can sometimes feel stuck with complex thoughts, feelings, and situations. In those times, we can feel as if there is no way to move forward, and reaching out can be challenging, and vulnerability is tough. Rather than fear moving forward with change or coping with life's stressors, I am here to support you in your journey and make a positive therapy experience. Making your first appointment can be one of the most challenging parts of therapy. I look forward to taking that first step together.

Life is hard sometimes. We do our very best and still things seem to fall apart. We long for change but struggle to move forward…unable to make sense of why we feel the way we do.
