Message to clients

As a licensed clinical social worker, I strive to create a comfortable and safe environment for you. A space that is judgement free and where you have the ability to truly express yourself.

Since opening my practice, my therapeutic services have helped people get through stressful times through challenging negative thoughts and understanding the source of specific behaviors and emotional patterns. With the right tools and a better approach to situations, I will help encourage a better outlook on any issues that life brings your way.

My expertise lies in working with children, adolescents, and young adults. I have extensive experience working in the school system at both the middle and high school levels. As well as experience working with adolescents and adults suffering from an array of mental health issues in intensive out patient settings.

In my practice I strive to provide a space where you play an equal role in the therapy process. I feel it is important for you to be the sole narrator of your story, while I am here to provide you with the safety, comfort, and guidance you need to tell your story.
