About My Clients

I specialize in working with children, adolescents, students and young adults. I primarily work with individuals who experience struggles including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, self esteem, family or relationship stress, chronic stress, life transitions, and PTSD.

My Background and Approach

My approach is first and foremost trauma-informed, person-centered, and strengths-based. I have experience with a wide array of therapeutic modalities, from DBT to motivational interviewing to play therapy. This means that I am able to mold the therapeutic process to fit many people's individual needs. I strive to create a space for anyone to feel heard, accepted, and believed in. My goal is to guide you in helping you find the strength and power within yourself to create whatever changes you are looking for.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I do not believe in pathologizing, which is why my work is strengths-based rather than problem-focused. I wish to break down the stigma that exists around mental health. As a social worker, I highly value social justice. I ally myself with the BIPOC community, the LGBTQIA+ community, refugees and new Americans.
