I am a Licensed Clin­i­cal Social Work­er (LCSW) with 10 years of expe­ri­ence in the men­tal health field. Over the last 5 years, I have ded­i­cat­ed myself to work­ing in inte­grat­ed mod­els of care, pro­vid­ing brief solu­tion-focused care. My phi­los­o­phy of care cen­ters around cre­at­ing a safe and non-judg­men­tal envi­ron­ment where clients can explore their thoughts, feel­ings, and expe­ri­ences. I believe in the impor­tance of build­ing a strong ther­a­peu­tic alliance based on trust, empa­thy, and mutu­al respect. My ulti­mate goal is to empow­er clients to achieve their goals and improve their over­all men­tal health and well-being. I believe that each indi­vid­ual has unique strengths and abil­i­ties that can be har­nessed to facil­i­tate growth and pos­i­tive change. Togeth­er, we will work towards cre­at­ing a ful­fill­ing and mean­ing­ful life. 

Clinical Interests

I am com­mit­ted to uti­liz­ing evi­dence-based prac­tices, such as Moti­va­tion­al Inter­view­ing (MI), cog­ni­tive behav­ioral ther­a­py (CBT), accep­tance and com­mit­ment ther­a­py (ACT), psy­choe­d­u­ca­tion, and mind­ful­ness. By incor­po­rat­ing these approach­es, I strive to help clients devel­op insight, cop­ing skills, and strate­gies to nav­i­gate life’s chal­lenges. I have a spe­cial inter­est in work­ing with teens and adults deal­ing with anx­i­ety and depres­sion. Addi­tion­al­ly, I have expe­ri­ence in sup­port­ing indi­vid­u­als with chron­ic ill­ness, grief and loss, stress and trau­ma, life tran­si­tions, sleep issues, LGBTQ+ con­cerns, and self-iden­ti­ty exploration. 

Personal Interests

Out­side of my pro­fes­sion­al life, I enjoy spend­ing time with my part­ner and two dogs.
