I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I believe in focusing on the whole system that surrounds an issue. I have a toolbox full of an eclectic assortment of interventions such as CBT, DBT, 12-step, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Behavioral Activation, Relationship counseling and much more. Your comfort is my biggest priority. If you do not feel safe sharing, then the change process can never even begin.

I have always had a heart for hurting people. I believe that counseling is never about me telling you what to do but is really about me helping you discern your options and make good, healthy decisions about what direction you choose. I love strengthening relationships by offering help with communication, conflict resolution, and decision-making skills."
