What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
I became a social worker because I wanted to help others in a meaningful way. I've always been interested in understanding human behavior and how it is impacted by society. I am warm, nonjudgmental, and curious, which are traits that help me in my work with people. I have over 10 years of experience working with diverse populations in many different settings. I have specialized training in crisis and suicide intervention and helping high-risk populations manage mental health symptoms. I can provide you with tools to help you manage depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship concerns.
What should someone know about working with you?
The first step is to contact me on Alma so that we can set a time to talk about your goals for counseling. We can schedule your first session where we will set goals together. I can provide you with concrete tools to use and practice in between sessions. I work best with those who are committed to working on their goals on a consistent basis because I am committed to you.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I continue to learn about family dynamics, cultural sensitivity, and the use of creativity as a healing tool. I meet with a group of therapists on a regular basis to get continued support and training so that I can provide the best care for you.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Mental health does not exist in a vacuum; our social circumstances impact our identities and our physical and mental well-being. Social justice as a core value shapes my work as a therapist and as a human being.
