Who I Serve

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are. Allow yourself to take that first step towards improvement and wellness. I have been practicing clinical social work for 6+ years and primarily work with children and adolescents aged 6-18. I believe that building trust is an essential step to creating a strong therapeutic relationship. It is essential in my practice to personally engage each client to tailor treatment to address specific client needs. I am compassionate and patient, yet direct and offer support in any way that I can. I have extensive experience using evidence-based treatments and am a credentialed Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (TF-CBT). I have treated a variety of clients who suffer from traumatic experiences including sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence, and neglect as well as depression, anxiety, and self-harming behaviors. I have found my passion working with children and their families and believe that we are not here just to survive, but instead to thrive. I welcome any opportunity to help guide new clients to inner peace and future success!
