My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 7 years’ experience providing psychotherapy to preschool and school-aged children, adolescents, and adults in outpatient and school settings. Having received extensive additional training and certifications, I practice several evidence-based psychotherapies, including Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), and Positive Parenting (PPP). Specialized training has also prepared me to work with toddlers who have experienced early childhood trauma.

My clinical specialties include depression and anxiety, trauma, adjustment, grief and loss, attachment, interpersonal relationships, early childhood mental health, childadolescent disruptive behavior, and parenting.

I provide a safe space in therapy through empathy and compassion and she tailors each client's treatment to their specific individual needs. I am dedicated to assisting my clients in meeting their goals, improving their lives, and making lasting changes toward wellness.
