Profile
“My therapy style is interactive and strengths-based; I can ensure that you will be heard, respected, and validated.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
I have always been eager to help others in any way I could. As a preteen, I became aware of family and peers struggling with intense sadness that caused them to self-harm. At the time, I did not know the meaning of self-harm or how to help them. My curiosity for how I could possibly help led me to my professional path of becoming an LCSW. I have a BS degree in psychology and child advocacy and a master’s degree in social work with an emphasis on children and families. My work experience has been with all ages in the following settings: Outpatient, individual, family, group therapy, inpatient psychiatric treatment, and crisis response treatment.
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe everyone deserves to be heard without judgment, no matter their age or circumstance. The journey of therapy will be a rollercoaster ride. Unpacking your pain and/or unhealthy habits will be a challenge, but I will be present with you on this rollercoaster to provide guidance and support to lead you toward healing. My therapy style is interactive and strengths-based; I can ensure that you will be heard, respected, and validated. I will remind you to be patient and gentle with yourself as change takes time.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a member of various behavioral health provider associations to stay updated on the latest changes in laws, treatment modalities, medications, and educational learnings. I participate in mental health-related conferences to continue to enhance my knowledge, professional skills, and practical skills. I also participate in various behavioral health trainings to become certified in specific treatment modalities.
