About

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS, COVERED UNDER MOST INSURANCE PLANS. Searching for the answers to life struggles? Have you asked yourself, "Is there another way of being in this world without all the problems?" I am here to tell you there is. There are ways to change your thoughts, your experiences, where you can live a more peaceful, content life without the burdens of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, health concerns, career, financial or any other problems you may be experiencing. I am here to assist you in overcoming and healing from those issues.
I am a registered clinical social worker (RCSW) with almost ten years of experience as a Mental Health Therapist. I utilize a holistic empowering approach to therapy. I see therapy as a collaborative approach between the therapist and client. I am also certified in providing grief therapy and have extensive experience successfully treating trauma.
Over my career as a psychotherapist, I have worked with many clients (from ages 7- Elders) with diverse backgrounds with different issues. In my practice, I begin therapy by building a trusting relationship with my clients, which lays the foundation for effective lasting positive results in therapy. Have more questions? I look forward to hearing from you.
