The first time meeting with a therapist can sometimes be the most challenging first step towards emotional recovery. It can provoke a certain amount of anxiety due to a number of factors, such as wondering if the counselor will be a good fit and/or deciding if ready to personally commit to getting help. The most important aspect of therapy is being honest to self and to the therapist. This enables openness to personal challenges in order to gain insight and make behavioral changes that the individual is seeking within themselves.

Professional experiences as a clinical social worker include working with a variety of populations such as but not limited to: veterans, developmental disabilities, mental illness, addictions, ADHD, grief/loss, couples, adults, families/children/adolescents, HIV/AIDS, LGBT/Transgender, Refugees, PTSD, and college level students.

I use a client centered, strength-based approach in order to empower clients to identify answers to their problems within themselves.
