About

Not Accepting Clients At This Time-11/16/22. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker. I have 15+ years in the Human Services field working in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. I am trained in Motivational Interviewing, Interpersonal Process Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I take a person-centered, solution-focused, strengths-based approach while celebrating your successes and validating your experiences.
I believe that when we are seen, accepted, understood and celebrated for who we are that is where healing can begin. To have someone see and honor all the parts of ourselves and our lives is empowering. Sometimes life feels like more than we can handle. It helps to have a space to unload and explore everything that you’re experiencing.
I strive to empower others to develop the skills and tools they need to be successful. My goal is to help you create awareness about your life, so you can decide where you want to make changes. We will focus on your strengths and work through barriers that prevent you from living your best life.
