My Approach to Helping
Guiding me in my work is the belief that all people are meant to be happy and fulfilled. Many of us have experiences where we are struggling with painful concerns. I work to assist people toward discovering their own resources, solutions, answers and wisdom to overcome and cope with their life challenges. My work is with individuals, athletes and folks who want to achieve their best performance and quality of life.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years of professional experience. My practice as a psychotherapist is in behavioral health counseling, shame resilience theory, and is complimented by key concepts and principles of solution focused therapy, positive psychology, mindfulness, and self compassion. I am a certified Daring Way (tm) Candidate (CDWF-Candidate) LLC, a psychoeducational curriculum based on the research of Dr. Brene Brown.
My expertise and clinical practice focuses on creating a safe environment to safely support individuals who want to recognize their vulnerabilities, manage their shame triggers and learn how to become more authentic in their personal relationships and professional settings.
