I treat my clients as human beings, not diagnoses, or symptoms. We are all unique individuals and I honor my client's gender, spiritual, ethnic and religious orientation. One of my strengths is that I develop a strong therapeutic alliance day one. This alliance builds trust, honesty, and risk taking. I am a trained social worker so I prefer a holistic approach or the "person in the environment". I don't "fix" people. I help my clients by navigating and narrating the pieces of their lives where they feel stuck. Often, we can't understand the role we play in our daily struggles. I can help by highlighting strengths while also noting those unhealthy habits that prevent you from living the life you deserve. I help by following my client's lead at the start of each session, pay close attention to boundaries and cater interventions to that individual, using my training, experience, and creativity.

More Info About My Practice

I see a very diverse client base. My clients range from private pay, insurance reimbursement, Victims of Crime and low-income children/adolescents who have received a therapy grant from the Avery Fuller-Welch Foundation.

I also have sliding scale rates for students and clients with financial challenges. I believe private practice therapy should be available to all regardless of income.

My clients range in age from 3-years-old to retirees

An important piece of my practice is my ongoing commitment to culturally competent practice. It is a priority that I serve individuals from diverse socio-economic and racial backgrounds.
