Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW, DBTC, CMHIMP
Life right now for most of us can feel extremely stressful or full of anxiety, can't it? It's just so much that a truly holistic, integrative approach to deal with it all can be very helpful. Stress, anxiety - they both can impact us physically, mentally and spiritually. Stress & anxiety both are cycles that we almost instinctively react to & is why often breaking out of the cycle can seem so hard & exhausting. It may seem our minds have become our enemies. BUT - you can change that. When you feel anxious or stressed, your whole person is involved in the process which is why I have a truly holistic, integrative approach to help.
Do you just need someone to talk to who is objective and nonjudgmental? If life is bringing you challenges and you are struggling with stress, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and/or grief, I can help. We will work together to bring positive changes to your life. I work with children, adolescents and adults.
I want to congratulate you for seeking help with whatever your issues may be. It is important to choose a therapist you feel you can connect with, as well as one who has the knowledge, skills and experience to help you reach your goals. I believe in the inner strength and wisdom of all individuals. We are born programed to heal and grow and we are all empowered with the ability to create the reality of our dreams. Sometimes we need new tools, insight and intervention to get there. I provide that help with a holistic approach in a supportive, interactive environment.

I have a great deal of experience using evidence based practices and techniques geared towards improving the lives and happiness of clients. I emphasize helping clients be more aware of their common thought patterns and to modify their ways of thinking and emotions to better promote feelings of well being. Focusing on the present is more conducive to well being than being consumed by the past or worries about the future. Helping clients control what they can is the key.and inevitably behavior will change as well.

Seeking a counselor is a very brave thing to do. So often the fear gets in the way of us being our best selves. I know the feeling of vulnerability when meeting with a therapist for the first time, which is why I always provide a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for my clients to explore.

Over the course of my career I have had the advantage of working with very diverse populations; high school students , the military , and compulsive gamblers . I have used many techniques to help my clients but the most important "tools" are the ones that empower individuals and that they will use regularly . My approach is eclectic based on my experience and what is practical.All clients have a resilency that is often lost in the course of everyday life and especially in situations that erode their strengths . Understanding how to uncover and recover their strengths in a valuable tool.
If you are struggling with feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious or depressed, I would like to assist you in your journey to overcome whatever obstacles you are facing in your life and to open up new possibilities for you to view.

With over 20 years working in the mental health field, I have found that a compassionate, empathetic approach is a necessity when providing therapy. Seeking therapy can be very challenging; one has usually endured a great amount of hardship or discomfort before even making the decision to seek help. A significant aspect to therapy is that to be truly effective, a person must feel comfortable with their therapist and build considerable trust to help facilitate their healing. My goal is to find the best approach that will work for you, maximizing the benefit you will receive in therapy.
I understand you might feel stuck in the past or the same negative loop and haven’t found any meaningful progress by talking to yourself, your family, or friends.

I use an integrative and tailored approach to meet your needs and cultural values.
