My Approach to Helping
I am an LCSW with 20 years of experience in psychotherapy. I have worked in-patient and outpatient care. I am experienced with most of the areas of various populations and the mental health issues that are so plaguing our country. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults, as well as family and couples therapy. I am the kind of therapist who likes to start where the client is. I consider myself an extremely empathetic therapist. Support and compassion are primary. I also try to provide the kind of treatment that fits each individual client. Some people respond better to cognitive therapy. They are able to learn to redirect disturbing cognitions and reframe them so they are easier to deal with. I am extremely professional and ethical at all times. I follow the NASW code of ethics and I was educated at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. I am also a Certified Dementia Provider with experience in memory care.
