About

We all have a desire to be heard, to be understood, and to be soothed. We often yearn for more satisfying and loving relationships. In therapy, I will listen carefully to you as we sort through obstacles that may be preventing you from experiencing greater ease and happiness. I will bear witness to your life stories, acknowledge your successes and struggles, and help you to find renewed resilience, acceptance and change. I'm patient and open-minded, and provide an empathic therapy space. I believe true healing occurs when we take care of our whole self in mind, body and spirit.
I have over 30 years of experience as a clinical social worker and my experience has taught me that regardless of how things look in the moment, our life stories are continually unfolding in unexpected ways, and it's always possible for things to get better. I provide both short-term and more intensive psychotherapy tailored to the needs of each client.
I am a Certified Clinical Supervisor and provide both individual and group supervision for established clinicians as well as for Licensed Social Workers (LSW) and Licensed Associate Counselors (LAC) in need of clinical supervision hours for Board licensure. You can read more about my supervision practice at Social Work Supervisors, LLC.
