About

I am an experienced School-Based Therapist and Mental Health Clinician with a background in Clinical Social Work. I have an established history of providing mental health support to teenagers and young adults. I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationships, family conflict, and navigating life changes.
My ideal client is in their teens through their early twenties and is experiencing feelings of sadness, anxiety, stress, and/or difficulty navigating life changes. They often feel as though they are at an impasse and unable to move forward.
They may have difficulty finding meaning in day-to-day activities or they may be experiencing conflict within the family system. I have found that youth and young adults are often looking for guidance and mental health support from an outside source who is not already a part of their day-to-day life.
