My Story

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is committed to partnering with clients to identify strategies that can help them work through life’s difficulties. I understand the complex relationship between thinking and emotions, as well as the impact it can have on mood and actions.  I also understand that it’s hard to ask for help, or to admit to having a hard time. That’s why I aim to build trust and authenticity in the therapeutic relationship.  

I’m very compassionate about addressing an individual’s unique needs while also letting them know that others struggle with similar challenges. My style is welcoming, warm and interactive! It brings me joy when my interventions help a client get better. Let’s get better together.

I work with elderly population and adults from diverse backgrounds. I am specialized in treating anxiety, depression, life transitions, low self-esteem and grief. I believe that being compassionate and empathetic to my client’s unique experiences are the foundational building blocks of building a strong therapeutic relationship. I value the diversity of my clients and aim to provide culturally competent services. I believe that every client has their unique experiences, therefore deserves a tailored treatment approach.

 

I utilize an integrative approach that combines different therapeutic approaches to best fit each client’s needs and goals. My approach is influenced but not limited to CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic, Psycho therapy, Solution Focused, Strength Based, Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness and Strength Based therapy. I also enjoy integrating a creative arts therapy approach and games because it allows my clients to express their own unique thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  I believe that everyone has a hard time sometimes, and I understand that engaging in effective treatment can help you get through it.
