My background as a social worker includes over 10 years of case management experience, where I've worked with low-income people in public assistance programs. I have also worked with many people experiencing intimate partner violence and recovering from childhood physical and sexual abuse, as well as people who have experienced religious trauma.
My approach is non-judgmental, assisting clients with understanding their unmet needs and the healthiest ways they can achieve them. I believe that positive, healthy relationships are the way to heal from negative past experiences and the therapeutic relationship is my greatest tool to help do that. My preferred techniques include EMDR, CBT, IFS, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapies.
Note for prospective clients - I do not work with minors (under 18). If you are seeking therapy for another person (18+), I require that individual contact me on their own before I will set an intake. This ensures the client is invested in the therapy.
