Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Providing holistic psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, and couples
Life can send unexpected events our way and it's important to find resources to help us cope, heal, and move beyond adversity. I have served an eclectic population in my 15+ years as a social worker and believe that my experiences both in and out of the therapy office have enhanced my ability to provide empathetic and multi-faceted clinical treatment to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. My expertise and interests focus on life's varying transitions. I enjoy working with those who may be struggling with family dynamics, relationship pain, school/work stressors and/or identity issues.
I have a wide range of experience working with clients who wrestle with unhealthy communication patterns. This is often the primary cause of individual and family strife. Guiding clients towards empathetic understanding and providing appropriate self-advocacy tools can help heal individual wounds and bridge gaps between friends and family members.
I have clinical expertise in the areas of blended families, separation/divorce, foster care, adoption, inter-racial family dynamics, sexuality, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, ODD, parenting, sexual abuse and domestic violence. I accept many insurances both in and out of network and also provide a negotiable sliding scale fee if that is deemed appropriate.
I utilize an eclectic therapeutic approach, and encourage the client to be the ultimate guide in the treatment process. During times of adjustment, strengthening one's self-awareness, self-esteem and self-worth can often eliminate the negative symptoms that often come with difficult change. I believe that everyone is capable of finding his/her inner strength and therapy can help to lead you towards that achievable goal.
