Pronouns: she/her/hers

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience working with adults, children, and families from diverse backgrounds. I specialize in anxiety, depression, stress, parenting, interpersonal conflict, women’s issues, and trauma. 

I support my clients to recognize and understand the distinctive reality they have developed based upon past experiences. A great place to explore perspective and understanding is in our past and current relationships with others. I am interested in building a compassionate, non-judgmental, therapeutic relationship to support each of my clients to gain awareness and acceptance of themselves as unique, multifaceted beings. 

I believe in a holistic approach to therapy where well-being is evaluated from several lenses including your emotional needs, physical health, and quality of close relationships. My role as a therapist is to support clients to feel safe in the therapy space and to challenge clients to heal themselves. 

Oftentimes people seek out therapy to work through unhelpful beliefs and behaviors. I like to think of these so-called habits as unconscious adaptations made out of necessity to bring relief of some kind. In therapy I want to help clients explore these adaptations to understand their motivations, limitations and uncover new space for self-growth.
