Although most of my experience has been with teens and young adults, I am open to meeting with clients of all ages and genders. Before becoming a social worker, I was a high school teacher for 23 years and worked as a social worker in a therapeutic school. I am particularly interested in supporting adoptees, sexual assault survivors, young people with learning differences, and LGBTQ+ youth as they heal from loss or trauma, discover their strengths, and construct an authentic identity. I have also run support groups for adoptees, trans/nonbinary teens, and parents of TGN teens.
Through motivational interviewing, using a strengths-based perspective, I solicit client concerns and current supports and challenges. In addition to listening to understand, validating feelings, and respecting lived experience, I connect individuals with resources and use approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and mindfulness to help them reach their goals.
Times of conflict and change are often uncomfortable, but they are also opportunities for growth. Silence and loneliness breed shame, which interferes with our sense of connectedness. Let me help you reframe your stories so you can reclaim control over your life and strengthen your relationships.
