A brief bio

I am a licensed independent social worker that works with children, teens and families dealing with anxiety, mood disorders, life transitions, and disruptive behavior/parenting concerns. I primarily employ the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model. The CBT model recognizes that your thoughts, feelings and behavior are interconnected and that focused effort to change these three things can ultimately change the way you live your life. 

For the past 8 years I have been providing individual counseling to children and adults with anxiety and mood disorders. I have also been providing parenting/behavior management to families with autism, ADHD and other disruptive behavior disorders. I really enjoy working with young adults on transitioning from high school to adulthood.

I pride myself in being positive, reflective and practical in my approach. I am passionate about helping others achieve their potential and I would love to collaborate with you!

A brief bio

Maybe you are a time in your life in which you are questioning all that you held to be true. Maybe you are feeling lonely, or are wanting more access to that small voice inside you that knows the way to go, but often gets ignored. Whatever brings you here, it takes courage to take the first step and begin. I believe that much of our sorrow and struggles are rooted in relational harm in our past, and that similarly, there is healing to be found in not remaining alone in your experience and process of past and present pain. I would be honored to participate with you as you step more fully into the stories that have shaped who you are.
I work creatively and collaboratively with each client. I use art and play in therapy when appropriate, finding these to be useful in the therapeutic setting, particularly when working with children and adolescents. I also enjoy working with young adults and adults grappling with issues of grief and loss, anxiety, depression and relational struggles.
Whatever brings you here, I would be honored to walk with you as you seek to better understand yourself, your relationships and your past as you move into an expression of yourself that you have full access to as you truly live from the inside out.
