My Approach to Helping

I am a clinical social worker trained in many different modalities that bring people relief from a wide variety of distressing symptoms. Whether people are going through a difficult life transition or want to explore different ways of looking and responding to everyday life experiences, I love to help them discover what is in their power to change. In the words of Victor Frankel “Everything can be taken from a [person] but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”

My training as a social worker taught me to look for and understand the broad social, historical, and political contexts within which individual problems arise. By helping clients process this piece of their challenges, we’re able to acknowledge the interconnectedness of generations and the larger picture of the human condition as a whole. We are then able to work on discerning the personal meaning of these challenges and the advantages and disadvantages of patterns that perpetuate them in the context of the client’s current and unique life. We work towards achieving goals-what wellness looks like for each person, setting agendas for each session and reflecting on significant barriers and gleamings of change as they occur.

Some of the special issues I’ve studied and worked with over the years include but are not limited to: the psychological stressors of long-term illnesses, the multi-layered needs of people who always wanted children but are unable to become parents, LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy, and how to transform trauma with a mind-body-spirit approach.
