Profile
“I am nurturing, sensitive, empathetic, kind, and a good listener, which helps me develop strong relationships with clients.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have worked in the field for over 16 years; social work is my first and only career. I have experience working in school settings and outpatient settings as well as experience as an outreach crisis counselor. I have always been interested in working with children and teens to help guide them in empowering their lives. I am nurturing, sensitive, empathetic, kind, and a good listener, which helps me develop strong relationships with clients. I feel my past experience working in a variety of agencies helped me become the therapist I am today. I am trained in many therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), parent child interactive therapy (PCIT), and eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR). Each modality shapes my practice and empowers me to help clients heal from past trauma and resolve issues of anxiety and depression.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work from a strengths-based model, focusing on a client's strengths to motivate them towards achieving their goals. I enjoy working with children and adolescents with ADHD, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, and past trauma.

What motivated you to become a social worker?
As a child, I experienced anxiety about going to school. When I was in high school and college, I took several psychology classes that made me interested in social work. I feel comfortable working with children as I am able to relate to them and their difficulties.
