I have worked in the field of addictions for over 15 years. People suffering from addictions and their families may have other underlying mental health issues such as trauma, depression and anxiety. Throughout my career, I have worked tirelessly with adults, adolescents, and as well as their families to address these issues and find a path to healing. My philosophy is simple: to treat the person in the surrounding environment, to see a person in the context of family, school, job, and community (and to evaluate the impact of these relationships), and to focus on the person's strengths as well as embrace their difficulties.

Quando a preocupação e a insegurança são um companheiro constante, pode ser difícil concentrar-se no trabalho, na família e relações. Quando evita coisas como conversas, prática de tênis ou jogo, ou sair com amigos, esse sentimento de desconforto aumenta. Você agora teme o impacto nas suas relações, com colegas, amigos e entes queridos, bem como em seus objetivos futuros. Agora imagine aprender e utilizar habilidades que lhe permitam superar os estreses em sua vida enquanto desenvolve e nutre suas relações.

In our fast-paced world, it is easy to feel stressed, lonely and confused. The question then becomes how do I navigate through these emotions and who can I trust to help me process my fears, doubts and deep secrets without judgement? With that in mind, it is my objective that every patient will walk into my room and know that they have someone that will listen, connect, empathize and encourage growth. As a licensed clinical social worker, I use an eclectic approach while treating depression, anxiety, substance abuse, low self-esteem, grief, stress and relationship conflict.

Not everyone has the same approach to life's problems such as grief, loss, bereavement, illness and stress, nor to the typical challenges of family relationships. The context of culture, ethnicity, race, gender, class, sexual orientation and spiritual beliefs influence the ways in which we view the world and how the world views us. I work with children, teens, individuals, couples and families to resolve issues in a way that is sensitive to their culture and context; and together we develop solutions that are congruent with their values.
