My Approach to Helping
I completed my Master’s Degree in Social Work at Fordham University Harrison New York . I have over 10 years of clinical experience across a variety of settings including outpatient clinics, crisis intervention, inpatient psychiatric, foster care , large nonprofits, and private practice. I have a broad range of clinical experience working with individuals and groups across the life span in the following areas:
•Depression and Bipolar Disorder
•Behavioral and Discipline Challenges
•Complicated Grief Reactions
•Anger and Stress Management
•Trauma and Abuse
•Family and Relationship Issues
•Suicide Assessment and Risk Reduction
•Chronic Mental Illness
•Self-image and Self-Esteem Issues
My approach emphasizes the mutual development of goals for therapy and provision of ongoing evaluation of the therapeutic approach. Services can include individual, couples, family and group therapy across the lifespans I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Christian Therapy, and Crisis Intervention.
I continue to seek ongoing updates to update my skills and knowledge base. I am invested in an approach emphasizing a more integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to mental health. I am particularly concerned with the impact of loss and trauma and improving intervention to support trauma recovery for better emotional, physical and relationship health.
