My Approach to Helping
Reaching out for help is a big step for many people, and I genuinely appreciate your courage and willingness to lean into growth and problem-solving! I operate from a solid relationally-based approach that is client-centered, solution-focused, and non-judgmental. I am very committed to building rapport, open communication, and helping you meet the goals you set at the pace that you feel is appropriate. I believe in creating a nurturing, comfortable, and safe space for expression that promotes authentic exploration and insight.
I have been an independently licensed social worker since 2013. I earned my undergraduate degree in psychology from Wheaton College in Massachusetts (2006) and my master’s degree in social work from the University of New England in Maine (2010). Since that time, I have spent most of my professional career working with children, adolescents, and families, primarily within the confluence of mental health and education. My clinical approach and style are always crafted for the person sitting before me. We will work together to figure out what you are comfortable exploring and how I can be most effective in helping you to reach your goals.
It takes courage and strength to lean into putting the work into actively creating change in a positive direction. You are here reading profiles is an accomplishment to be celebrated! I am here for you ifwhen you are ready, and I look forward to celebrating your future achievements!
