Announcement icon Currently, I am holding therapy sessions online for both existing and new clients through a confidential, HIPAA compliant platform.
I am a trauma-informed Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) that is dedicated to offering a non-judgmental safe setting for clients seeking a down-to-earth, authentic therapist focused on helping clients heal from a variety of traumas including childhood sexual abuse. I also work with clients on issues related to sexual health and pleasure from a sex positive perspective and am currently working towards certification to become a Certified Sex Therapist through AASECT. I enjoy working with a diverse clientele and welcome clients from the LGBTQIA community.
I provide therapy to adolescents, adults, and couples utilizing various treatment modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions. I believe in offering a holistic approach to treatment and working as a team with my clients.
I consistently incorporate a strengths-based perspective during therapy sessions in order to help my clients tap into their innate capabilities and enhance their sense of resilience. I believe that each client has the capacity to live a meaningful life and that these strengths can be amplified with the help of a supportive therapist.
