My life experiences and training as a social worker has given me a unique understanding of how both childhood experiences and current circumstances, impact our daily lives. With this understanding, I desire to work with clients empowering them to make long lasting changes to increase their happiness and daily satisfaction by assisting them to identify existing strengths and developing helpful, healthy thoughts. I view clients as a whole, taking into account past experiences, present situation, and their goals for the future. I specialize in trauma recovery, understand and learn to manage their anxiety, overcome depression and suicidal ideations.

I work from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, using both Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients in recovering from past trauma and overcoming their depression and anxiety.

I provide a safe and relaxed environment for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings, identifying their wants and needs, and develop skills to manage all of life's twists and turns.
