Contemplating any change can be daunting, but here you are, reaching out, exploring. Change takes time, and seeing a therapist can be the first step along a new path. We can go at your pace, walking together on a path you determine. Whether you are looking at a life transition, grieving a loss, or dealing with a chronic illness, together we will begin the process of examining where you are, working together to shift to a place that brings you fulfillment and to help you reach your goals.
I work from a client-centered approach, understanding that we each come with our own strengths and challenges. I offer a collaborative and encouraging space utilizing techniques from a variety of theoretical frameworks including a narrative approach, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience in the fields of mental health, grief and loss, substance abuse, chronic illness, hospice, and HIV/AIDS. I am experienced working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds and am an LGBTQ ally.
A little about me: I really encourage laughter with clients and in my own life journey. I share a house with 3 boys (one is middle-aged) and a very large fluffy dog. I have a wild garden full of local volunteer plants. I have a passion for all things creative and get way more excited about my kids’ science fair projects than they do.
