My Approach to Helping
My approach focuses on helping individuals have hope and belief in the knowledge that they can live a life of fulfillment and contentment. Often people feel broken, overwhelmed and hopeless when faced with life challenges, whatever they may be. It feels like no one understands and nothing can be done, but with help and we all need help from time to time; life can feel worth living. A number of theories are used according to the unique needs you may have.
I became a therapist because I love to connect with others on a deeper level. Every since I was about 5 years old, I knew I wanted to be a Social Worker. When we would play house, I would be the social worker. My passion has remained, I enjoy what I do and see it as my part in helping to make this world a better place. My motto is "Bring Quality Back to Care". To treat people as people and not a number. No waiting hours, no feel of being in an institution, no disrespectful staff; just me brimming with a smile filled with enthusiasm and eager to help you reach your goal.

Telepractice video sessions are provided on a HIPPA Compliant site. The goal is to increase the ability for anyone to participate in treatment and reduce the barriers, such as limited traveling time, mobility concerns, weather related issues or unforeseen changes in schedule. Often clients use a combination of face to face and video sessions.
