About me

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with 7 years of experience in the field. I am especially passionate about working with young people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substances, trauma, and family conflict. I support my teen clients in navigating the ups and downs of school and/or work, relationships, family, and life in general.

It is my goal to help you find your passions, achieve your goals, and feel better in your day-to-day life. I approach my work as a therapist with openness, curiosity, and warmth. I will meet you wherever you're at and support you in your journey toward a happier, healthier, and more confident version of yourself.

I am a compassionate listener, an advocate for you in all areas of life, and a partner in your journey of growth. I look forward to learning about you, your experiences, and how we can overcome challenges together.
