About

Life is full of challenges which may include difficulty in one's personal relationships. Seeking therapy can be intimidating, but I will provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for one to share their thoughts and feelings. Therapy provides a healthy outlet to learn new skills to improve interpersonal relationships and overall mental health. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work and have been in the field for the past 20 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with the adult population. I personally know how therapy can help tremendously during low periods of life. Therapy should provide mental healing and wholeness!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and my therapeutic approach is catered to the specific needs of my clients. I have experience working with trauma survivors and those dealing with depression and anxiety. My goal is to assist my client with gaining insight for personal growth, healing and change. Becoming your authentic self is possible!
The challenges individuals face in life, may shape their behavior and perspectives. Becoming a healthier version of oneself, is an achievable goal through therapy. We can work collaboratively to help mend fragmented thought patterns. If you want to improve how you think, respond and relate to others, then I might be the therapist for you.
