My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 11 years of experience in the mental health field. I am passionate about working with young adults as well as trauma survivors. I am a very relational, client-centric therapist - in other words, I believe that the relationships I have with each of my clients are extremely important and the key ingredient to helping others grow into their full potential. I respect and value you and what you bring to the table - we will work on the things that feel important to you and I strive to come from a non-judgmental, warm and accepting place, no matter what your concerns or difficulties are. In addition to listening and truly trying to understand you and your story, I will bring in information that I feel is relevant that will help guide you towards the goals and desires you have for yourself. I am trained in CBT, TF-CBT, DBT and CPT - I say this mostly to show you that, while we WILL talk and process things in a way that\'s most useful for you, I also have specific skill sets and training aimed at resolving the difficulties you are bringing forth (depression, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, anger, difficulties in relationships, griefloss, etc). I always encourage this to be a collaborative process and will always want to know what you feel is working or not working so that we can adjust our focus and tactics accordingly.
