About

Although we cannot control the events that occur around us, we can develop methods to respond to and cope with each experience in productive ways. Therapy helps an individual begin the process of self exploration which leads to change and growth. Evaluating challenging topics or events in a psychologically safe environment allows for deepened awareness and overall behavioral change. The goal of my practice is to provide a comprehensive assessment using a psychosocial perspective, to cultivate a therapeutic relationship and to establish a concrete treatment plan that coincides with your clinical needs.
Using a collaborative approach, we will explore stressors but also seek to understand the role and impact of dynamics which have evolved through time. As a clinician, I approach therapy from humanistic and behavioral perspectives, while utilizing components of psychodynamics to explore how early life events may have contributed to behavioral patterns.
I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work and have been practicing clinically for more than 15 years. My background and specialties include: trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, traumatic brain injury and PTSD.
