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!
