Hello and welcome to your journey in finding a therapist to support you through your process of addressing the issue that you identify and desire change with to help live a healthy and authentic life. I truly enjoy working with families as they work together to address the health of their family system. I am energized working with adolescents with ADHD related issues. I feel passionate and genuinely capable of working with individuals, couples and families through queer related issues. Lastly, I am well versed and experienced working through supporting others through their unique grief experience.
I am a therapist with 10 years experience as a Social Worker and 8 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I believe in practicing with intention and presenting authentically as I am. I will work diligently and compassionately to support your journey throughout the entirety of our therapeutic relationship.
I am encouraged by your motivation to explore counseling and hope that you find the right person to walk with you through your journey of self discovery and healing. Know this, whoever you are, wherever you have been and whatever you have experienced, you deserve the opportunity to live a life you seek as authentically as possible.
