My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience counseling individuals of all age ranges. Throughout my career as a social worker, I’ve worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, residential addiction treatment centers, and crisis stabilization with childrenfamilies; in public, private and voluntary sectors. I also worked abroad (UK) for 2 years where I gained meaningful experience working with a variety of cultures. I am Bilingual (EnglishSpanish) and, as such, recognize the importance of being culturally aware. I have always been drawn to humanistic models of therapy that focus on a collaborative relationship based on real interactions, and unconditional positive regard. I also utilized modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I am a trauma-informed practitioner and enjoy utilizing expressive arts as a conduit to healing. I believe that my relationships with clients can be healing and that effective interventions start with a genuine human connection.
I look forward to hearing from you!
