Announcement icon I am a TeleMental Health provider, but now see a LIMITED number of clients in the office based on need; and only if fully vaccinated.
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. I have completed Level 3 Gottman training & am now participating in Certification Consultation Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy which I use in my work with couples. Additionally I use Mindfulness, CBT, Psychodynamic Therapy, & EMDR.
I am only accepting new couples at this time. For individual therapy, please call me if you'd like me to put you on a waiting list. I am primarily using Telehealth but also see a limited number of clients in my office. Please note: I NO LONGER ACCEPT EAP CLIENTS and I DO NOT ACCEPT INSURANCE FOR COUPLES THERAPY.
