I am a licensed clinical social worker who practices both individual and couples therapy. I have extensive experience working with client's from diverse backgrounds. My training as a social worker has given me the understanding of how both childhood and current life circumstances impact people. I work to assist client's in understanding how they deal with these problems. My goal is never to provide answers for people, but to help people to understand themselves so that they can function and operate independently of their conflicts and problems.
My intention as a therapist is that together we can understand the challenges you bring in such areas as addictions, depression, anxiety, relationships, intimacy or sexuality and then look at how these issues stem from the underlying conflicts you face.
What sets my practice apart is I have training in understanding the unconscious mind and the impact of social issues. This allows me to bring an appreciation of how both internal and external conflicts impact your problems.
