About Me

I am glad that you decided to take the first steps to seek help and healing. It takes courage to reach out!

The therapeutic process can be life changing as you gain a better understanding of yourself. Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors have a big impact on the quality of our day to day life. Through building a therapeutic relationship, I can help guide you through the journey of positive change which can be a very rewarding experience for you. I believe that it is important to create an environment that is free of judgment so that you can feel safe expressing yourself. The way we form our identity is complex, many roles play a factor including our environment, family of origin, current relationships and lifestyle. Through the journey of life, events both positive and painful help to mold us. Exploring grief, relationship dynamics, challenging responsibilities and exploring difficult adjustments can foster guided growth. During your teen years a lot of change is occurring and it can be very stressful. Being able to open up to someone outside your family or social circle can be refreshing. The process can lead to creating a stronger, happier, healthier you.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 6 years of experience. I have worked with many teens that reach out for several different reasons. I am informed in several modalities including TLC trauma techniques, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, attachment theory, solution focused, strength based, cognitive behavioral techniques and dialectical behavioral techniques. I will use a combination of techniques to create the most effective strategies to help you.

I look forward to working with you!
