All About Me
I am an EMDR-trained Licensed Clinical Social Worker and work with adults in individual therapy. Most of my clients come to therapy wanting to gain a better understanding of how their experiences have shaped them and break free from their past. I specialize in treating trauma to help individuals gain insight into how traumatic experiences have shaped the way they view themselves, relationships, and the world around them. My goal is to help someone develop self-compassion and take steps towards building a future for themselves without misery and suffering.
I have worked with many clients experiencing hardships related to life stressors, thoughts of suicide, mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD. I apply a person-centered approach to suit a client's unique needs and draw from multiple treatment orientations including CBT, CPT, DBT, and motivational interviewing. I also utilize EMDR for memory processing.
My greatest passion is helping clients create the change they would like to see within themselves, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone’s transformation. My role is to gently provide guidance, validation, and emotional support throughout a client’s journey. It would be an honor to walk alongside you on yours.
I love being creative and crafting in my free time. I am a cat mom to 3 special needs kitties. I am a huge foodie and my husband and I love to cook different ethnic dishes. Our cats reap the benefits of our love of food and enjoy a seafood snack every evening!
