Announcement icon I am a Board Certified TeleMental Health provider, but am now accepting a LIMITED number of clients in the office based on need.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker specializing in Individual and Couples therapy, and a Board Certified Coach specializing in Life Transitions and Relationship Issues. I have lived & worked in several states across the country which, I believe, gives me a more global perspective on issues that we all face from time to time. And with over 20 years experience as a psychotherapist, and another 15 or so providing community-based social services, I am experienced in a broad range of issues and approach each client with warmth, acceptance and a sense of humor.
My approach to therapy is based on client need, always with a strengths-based/insight-oriented perspective. Modalities I use are Choice Theory & Reality Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, & Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR). I have completed Level 3 Gottman training & am Board Certified in TeleMental Health.
I am currently accepting a new clients, and am primarily using Telehealth, I am not accepting EAP clients at this time.
