About

**Currently accepting, limited space** Looking for the right therapist can be challenging and stressful. When I sit across from a client, I value and respect that I am being invited into important, personal situations, thoughts, and vulnerabilities. My philosophy to clinical work comes from my belief that you are trying to do the best you can and want better. I will both accept you for where you are at, while pushing you toward the change you are looking for. I take a genuine, empathic and directive approach to support you in creating a life worth living.
I specialize in trauma, personality disorders, and coping skills for emotional distress, depression and anxiety. I have training in various psychotherapy models, with foundations in trauma-based practices. I believe in sharing both my insights and psycho-education with my clients to support a personal and informed connection in the therapeutic process.
My social-activist past and passion to connect with individuals propelled me to complete my Masters in Clinical Social Work. In 2003, I sat across from my first client and began my career. I love my job, collaborating with my clients, and I look forward to working together with you.
