Finding a therapist you can trust is paramount. My clients describe me as supportive, empathetic and honest. I tend to speak up more during sessions than many traditional therapists; this is because I’m genuinely curious about how you think and feel. Engaging in a conversation and getting to know your story are the reasons I became a social worker.
I have a passion for women's issues, life transitions, relationships, self-esteem, and trauma. I also love working with college students. After working with women for years, I recognize that so many of us are u fairly hard on ourselves and I seek to help empower women in a supportive space. I make sure that I honor each client’s voice and comfort level.
Change is difficult. Recognizing that you'd like to change behavior patterns and alter your perspective is an essential first step to beginning the work. I appreciate how hard this is to do on your own, which is why I provide a safe space while challenging you to reach your goals. If this sounds like a good fit, I would love to hear from you.
