I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been practicing therapy since 2016. I graduated with a Bachelor of Human Services and a Master of Social Work. I am currently working full-time with adults in a hospital setting. I also have experience working with many different populations and age groups ranging from children to older adults. I have a solution-focused approach all while providing a safe and non-judgmental environment. I am adaptable and have the ability to utilize different modalities tuned to your treatment goals.
I approach psychotherapy in a collaborative manner utilizing modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength Based, Solution Focused, and Person-Centered. A few of my specialties are working with individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal relationships.
I am committed and passionate about the process of healing through insight, positive change, and healthy coping strategies. My goal in this collaborative therapeutic process is to promote change and improve your overall quality of life.
My communication style
I have a gentle and open communication style. I am actively listening and observing your non-verbal communication to provide effective therapy. My goal is to work with you and not against you.
My first session with you
In the first session, I am looking to build rapport and begin developing a therapeutic relationship with my clients. I discuss what therapy entails and answer any questions you may have. I also try to gather some key background, history and presenting concerns.
