My Approach to Helping
I help clients with their journey to become one's ideal self. I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) practicing psychotherapy. My expertise is treating adults who struggle with anxiety and depression and are seeking to find a more meaningful life. I also enjoy working with college students, new graduates, and career changers faced with anxiety due to their life transition(s) which can bring on stress, depression, and or anxiety with the many questions centering around, “What am I going to do next in my life?"
I help clients navigate that question through collaborative sessions while also using an empathetic and nonjudgmental stance. I also integrate Mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Theory (ACT), and strengths perspective, as they pertain to depression, anxiety, and life transitions.
I also find it incredibly rewarding to work with clients in the mental health care field. I cherish the opportunity to share my knowledge around creating work-life balance to reduce compassion fatigue. Feel free to email me to set up a phone consultation or intake appointment!

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Life can be tough. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who has primarily worked with adults facing anxiety and depression, I have had many clients, all with their own individual story, who have shown me what it means to walk through some messy things in life.
My therapeutic style is not straight out of a textbook; I am a therapist who is going to show up for my clients in a way that is authentic and true. I may make jokes, fumble over some phrases, or ask those questions that bring up tears that have been buried for quite some time. I read the room with the client of what is necessary in that moment. I am intentional and not afraid to gently push the client to live the meaningful life they were meant to live.
