About

I believe that all humans have a resilient spirit which allows them to overcome any obstacle before them. Sometimes we forget who we are or perhaps we never fully knew. Maybe we felt we were never able to be our authentic selves. It's possible we think there's something wrong with us or we're broken. Or is it that we struggle to manage mental health symptoms and we become emotionally deregulated and filled with shame? Maybe you think that you have gone to far and there is no hope for you. You are not alone. I have helped countless people with stories like these and many more. What ever it is that is holding you back, I can help.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I strive to create a warm, welcoming and safe environment that is free of judgment and full of possibilities. My path to becoming a helping professional is filled with years of life experience, overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles which makes my approach to therapy unique.
Reaching out for help is never easy at first but once you are engaged in services it gets easier. You may not know it at this time but you are resilient and full of strengths. Let me help you create a life full of meaning as you overcome any obstacle you are facing. Give me a call to get started. You will be so glad you did.

Monday Night Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a multilayered set of tools that when practiced regularly help us to navigate the world and our response to it in a healthy more balanced manner. Learning the skills of Mindfulness has shown to improve over all health and wellness, improve focus, clarity and emotional regulation as well as reduce the symptoms of physical and emotional stress. Group will consist of check in, education, as well as time for practice, questions and clinical feedback.
