Announcement icon During this crisis, finding support to manage anxiety and isolation is critical. Remote therapy services are available. Please reach out!
Do you often feel isolated or overwhelmed; are you struggling with depression or anxiety; a survivor of trauma? If so, perhaps we can work together to help you begin to heal; to get you to a better place. In my work I focus primarily on the therapeutic relationship, investing time and energy into getting to really KNOW each individual while seeing you as someone deserving of dignity, respect and compassion, with unlimited potential. If you’re a woman struggling with relationships, a mother finding the demands of motherhood challenging, or an adolescent or young adult navigating school, social & family issues, I’d like to help.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 20 years of experience working with issues of depression, anxiety, trauma recovery interpersonal/relationship issues and self-esteem. I use a combination of techniques to explore complex emotions, discover unhelpful patterns of thinking & behaving, and provide you with tools that can help you create change.
I offer free phone consultations to determine whether I might be a good fit for your needs. Video & Teletherapy available. I also offer home-based services, meaning I'll provide therapy in your home if the circumstances support it. You deserve to live a happy and fulfilled life. Together, we can get you to a better place. I look forward to hearing from you.
