“When we long for a life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are formed under great pressure”. Peter Marshall
Welcome! I am an independently practicing Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I approach therapy as a collaboration between myself and the individual(s)/couple served. Together we can discuss your treatment goals and priorities. My goals as the therapist are to make you feel comfortable, validated, and empowered throughout the process. We all struggle with different issues, and making the decision to seek out help is empowering. You are here, let’s take the next step together.
I have been a social worker for more than 20 years and have experience working with people from diverse backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with kids/teenagers and families who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, substance abuse, and the challenges of a complex world. My work with the parents/family have been so important to promote success. I use a myriad of evidence based treatment approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused, strength-based, mindfulness, and trauma informed. The feedback I receive from clients is that they find me to be authentic, caring and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them. You can expect me to walk with you through whatever difficulties you are facing, and help you learn more about yourself, your partner, and the way you interact with the world while promoting resiliency.
The technology at Betterhelp has allowed us to further the treatment process by having several interactions per day/week, which can intensify the therapeutic relationship, while allowing for rapid change.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Parenting issues
- Self esteem
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD
