Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker

Sometimes life is hard; and it seems that no matter what we do we can’t seem to change it. A therapist may be just what you need to help navigate this rocky terrain.

I believe that psychotherapy provides an opportunity for self-discovery and change. I assist people in finding more effective solutions to the concerns that bring them into therapy. People often feel stuck and don’t know how to make the shift into something different. I’m committed to helping you achieve your desired outcome. I work collaboratively with you to find how past events may have shaped the direction of your current life. In a safe, supportive, and compassionate atmosphere using a holistic, mindfulness-based approach, we can remove the barriers that may be hindering you, discover or rediscover your strengths, and empower you to create your envisioned life.

I’m a seasoned clinician who’s successfully guided others through challenging times. I specialize in assisting those experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, death, divorce, life transitions and changes, questions about identity, a loss of self, as well as people struggling with everyday life.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
