I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 20 years, working with a variety of clientele of various ages, cultures, gender and mental wellness needs. I have experience in a variety of treatment and therapeutic modalities but specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Expressive Art Therapy and Trauma Focused interventions. I support individuals with mental wellness challenges such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, women-focused issues, trauma, survivors of domestic violence, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief and loss.
I enjoy being a mental health provider because I believe that everyone has the potential within themselves to have strong and healthy mental wellness. However, some people are challenged tapping into that potential, and sometimes need a little encouragement and support to realize that they have the ability for improved mental wellness and to make the changes they desire. I enjoy spending time with people and assisting them in this discovery process.
