With more than a decade providing direct therapy to adolescents, women and families, I have a passion to help people get out of the rut they are in. Most of my experience has been with adjustment, anxiety, depression, and relational disorders of teens and young adults. But my expertise stretches into healing from trauma, sexual abuse, and loss.
I believe strongly that therapist and client should fit well together. At the first session, you can expect a nonjudgemental and an easy-going conversation to build up a therapeutic alliance. Therapeutic techniques/interventions you can expect in a therapy session are: Motivational Interviewing, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, Coping Skills, Psychoeducation, amongst other skills.
A little more about me: As an experienced and passionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I utilize my skills and expertise of working with youth, women, families and organizations where the greatest positive impact can be made to our society. Unfortunately, the world brings pain, shame, and hurt; however, I believe through prevention (training and awareness) and intervention (therapy and supportive services) these and other symptoms and behaviors can be reduced and possibly avoided all together.
