As a licensed clinical social worker, I am passionate about witnessing my clients free themselves of worries and self-doubt as they journey towards their best selves. From a person-centered approach, I embrace values of genuineness, empathy, and acceptance of my clients in all walks of their lives. It's my belief that as I encourage these aspects in the therapeutic relationship, and within clients themselves, that healing and transformation unfold. While I may use other interventions from my training to support your journey, this is the foundation on which I interact with my clients.

More Info About My Practice

I strive to bring values of authenticity and acceptance to other areas of social work such as through supervision of newer clinicians. I have experienced firsthand the immense impact a supportive supervisor can have on their supervisees' personal and professional growth. I have experience in, and am committed to, working with others of diverse cultural backgrounds and welcome transgender and gender non-conforming individuals who are seeking an affirming therapist.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

While I treat a range of issues, I gravitate towards trauma/PTSD and anxiety disorders such as social phobia, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety. For these specific difficulties, I am both centering and containing because emotional safety is essential in this healing process and begins in the therapeutic alliance.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I truly believe it takes courage and a willingness towards vulnerability to embark on the journey that is therapy. I am always transparent with clients that this process is not without its challenges. However, I firmly believe that you owe it to yourself to take a step towards improvement and healing and I intend to honor that process.
