I use a person-centered, strengths-and-resilience approach that focuses on the individual's capabilities in order to reach his or her goals and find balance. When working with families, I focus on the individuals that make up each family. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential counseling environment, based on empathy and respect. My clients should be open and motivated for change. Additionally, I can assist with anger management and developing new and healthy coping skills. They also respond to my direct, honest, and nurturing approach in therapy.
I focus on therapy with adults, seniors, adolescents and children, helping with suffering from depression, anxiety, work stress, caregiver burnout, relationship issues, bereavement or loss, trauma, difficulties transitioning into parenthood (peripartum and postpartum depression for women and their spouses), and career and life transitions such as being new to retirement.
I practice with wonderful colleagues so if there are other family needs, I have some great therapists I will recommend. I am also a TSBSWE board-approved supervisor for LCSW candidates. If you are interested in supervision as an LCSW candidate, and currently have your LMSW license, contact me.
