Who I Serve

Because counseling can sometimes be a daunting experience, I aim to put my clients at ease from the first moment. Life can be difficult to navigate. We accumulate invisible scars and wounds over time. When the tools and thoughts that we use to cope with life's changes and challenges are out dated, they can leave us feeling depressed, fearful, or overwhelmed. I work collaboratively with my clients to fully understand their issues and to develop treatment strategies that address their concerns in an open, safe, and understanding environment. I am a licensed social worker primarily serving children, adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship distress and histories of trauma. In my practice, I utilize mindfulness training, cognitive behavioral, DBT, motivational interviewing,and draw from other evidence-based methods. While my style is informal and relaxed, confidentiality is always of utmost importance. I have learned that we all have an enormous capacity to change, when we can access our own inner power. Through our work together, I hope you will develop increased self-awareness, personal growth, and profound healing.
