I am a licensed independent clinical social worker specializing in health and wellness, end of life care, grief and loss, and caregiver stress. My practice also includes working with people who struggle with addictions and desire to make a change in this area of their lives. My ideal client is someone seeking clarity for better self-knowledge, interested in an improved quality of life and is willing to commit to a process of exploration.

My primary modality is use of Internal Family Systems as an effective and efficient method for addressing many different concerns. I practice from a psychodynamic perspective, incorporating mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy and mind/body techniques into the treatment.

I practice from a trauma-informed and strengths perspective with a foundational belief in wholeness. Our work together is meant to support interpersonal growth and positive change. If you are looking for an improved quality of life with better self-awareness and smoother relationships, please give me a call for an initial phone consultation.
