My Approach to Helping
“Recovery Is Possible” As a Licensed Certified Social Worker, my goal is to work in a partnership with individuals to assist them in recognizing their own strengths, self-worth, and resilience to promote growth and positive changes. I work to empower individuals to confidently utilize their abilities to improve the quality of life and experience healing from stressors or crises.
My practice specializes in using a combination of solution focused, strengths based, client-directed and cognitive behavioral techniques in a recovery focused manner; practicing motivational interviewing with an emphasis on partnering with you in order to facilitate your intrinsic motivation for change. I have 25+ years of therapy experience (including: individual, familycouples, and group therapy) addressing a wide range of emotional and behavioral challenges for children, teenagers, young adults, adults, and geriatric populations. My background is diverse, including working with individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness, providing holistic care for those in recovery.
My therapy style is relaxed and centered on the belief that all individuals are deserving of care and respect. I seek to create a comfortable, non-judgmental, and supportive environment where individuals can process and problem-solve issues andor stressors while also gaining greater understanding and discovery of themselves. I believe in the power of relationship and the trans-formative nature of the therapeutic process.
