Profile
“I am adaptable and integrative in approaches and recognize each person as distinct and nuanced.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
I transitioned to social work from a corporate career in internal/employee communications at a large international company. It was time to redirect the same energy and focus to an occupation that committed to enhancing the wellbeing of individuals, especially those who are often underserved. Blending the former corporate career with social work has been helpful to the way I listen and tailor approaches to clients. Having worked in various mental health and medical settings, including hospitals, community mental health, child and family services, employee assistance programs, and more, has broadened my understanding of the many challenges individuals face and the complex systems they encounter.
What should someone know about working with you?
Clients will have a welcoming, therapeutic space in which my aim is to bring the best of my professional experience. I am adaptable and integrative in approaches and recognize each person as distinct and nuanced. My goal is to help clients feel engaged, understood, and empowered and realize the benefits of this process. I am trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and utilize cognitive behavioral therapy to help clients who are seeking ways to manage and improve their lives amid life’s challenges and past and present disturbances.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I meet regularly with respected colleagues on various topics; we challenge each other and provide mutual support and resources. I engage regularly in coursework and workshops to stay current on emerging approaches. Notably, I listen to clients and seek their feedback on how they experience the work and what is important to them. These elements are consistently an important influence on the services I offer.
