Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile! Beginning therapy can be an exciting and difficult process. I am a client-centered Independent Clinical Social Worker committed to helping individuals and couples grow in authentic ways by gently guiding and warmly challenging them. I will truly listen and enjoy finding new ways to help connect and communicate. I often ask questions as a way to gain understanding and direction. I will be actively engaged in the present while being mindful of the struggles that caused you to begin therapy.
I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings with clients struggling with many types issues; including anxiety, depression, loss, financial issues, life transitions and relationship problems. My approach is eclectic, individualized and influenced by my experience with humanistic therapy.
As a therapist who works with individuals, couples and families I know there are many ways to look at life's challenges and therapy is often a good place to start. I bring humor, sensitivity and curiosity to my practice and offer a safe, warm and compassionate place to explore what you need.
