Announcement icon I am accepting new clients and complying with social distancing suggestions using secure HIPAA compliant video sessions.
Sometimes we come to a point in life when our challenges become so overwhelming that change is the only solution. Knowing where or how to start can be a challenge in itself. In a respectful and caring way, I will work with you to look at the areas of discomfort in processing feelings, communicating with those around you and in important relationships. The key to positive change and a more peaceful life can be having someone to listen and to guide you to recognizing the solutions already inside of you. Together we will explore and build skills to make coping with life challenges more manageable.
As a social worker with more than 20 years of experience working with older children, adolescents, adults and families I provide a safe, warm and non-judgmental environment in which to build a strong therapeutic relationship. My approach is an eclectic mix of CBT, DBT, Family Systems and Strengths Based Treatment tailored to each Individual.
