About

I am a Licensed Social Worker and have worked with clients of all ages. I relate well to children and adults, creating a therapeutic environment for all. I have experience working with children with behavioral issues, autism, and mental health. I have extended schooling in working with victims of sexual exploitation and have participated as a mentor for this population. In addition, I have experience working with adults who have dealt with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and other mental health concerns.
Having worked with these individuals, I have received education in Trauma-Focused training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. In addition, I utilize the strength-based approach and implement the Person In Environment approach to recognize additional impacts to the individual.
I provide a safe, trusting, genuine, and empathetic environment to allow for individuals to process different concerns and traumas they have experienced in their lives. I encourage anyone seeking help to reach out and discuss the possibilities of working together further.
