Announcement icon Our office is currently offering all sessions via video or phone, which is covered by insurance. We are accepting new patients.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I aspire to nurture human potential, inspire hope and promote meaningful life choices. I am experienced in working with children, adolescents and their families, as well as adults, who are faced with challenges including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, self-injury, behavioral issues, parent-child conflict, adjustment issues, and other emotional trauma. I specialize in working with individuals with issues surrounding self-esteem, life transitions and dealing with difficult emotions. I also offer clinical supervision for those completing their clinical hours towards their LCSW.
I provide individual and family therapy using an eclectic approach incorporating Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution-Focused techniques, as well as Family Systems theory to help achieve your goals. I also utilize Theraplay based activities which guides parent and child in the experience of interacting in ways that foster attachment and joyful iteraction.
We will work together to help you develop insight into your thoughts and actions, so you can achieve a more balanced and fair interpretation of yourself and remedy your life challenges.
