About My Clients

On the outside you project the image of someone who has got it together. Others see you as a top-notch student, social butterfly, a multi-tasker. Despite obstacles in your life, you've managed to have a great career, a great spouse or partner, and the support of your family. Others see you as caring, reliable, funny, smart, successful, and honest. You are feeling burned out, anxious, stressed, depressed and just plain tired of living this life.

My Background and Approach

You are unique. No other person has the same needs as you do, therefore, I will treat you based upon the therapeutic goals that you and I establish in our initial sessions. All clients receive a thorough assessment and individualized treatment plan, that has measurable goals. With your permission, I will also work with other professionals that are providing care for you to include your primary care provider or psychiatrist, if you are working with one. We are all a part of your treatment team. The therapeutic approaches or interventions (things that help bring able change) that I use to help you work through your anxiety, stress, and depression tend to be eclectic (or mixed) and may be brief or longer-term, depending on your needs. I like to use a variety of therapeutic approaches, but my primary therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is brief, protocol-driven, accepted by most insurance companies, humane, and effective.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a Social Worker so I am passionate about improving the lives of people who are less fortunate or unable to advocate for themselves. I am about social change efforts and in this day and time this include effecting change against racial discrimination, homophobia, and poverty. As a therapist, I have worked with people from all walks of life. I can connect with anyone. Mental illness does not discriminate and can affect every aspect of a person's life. Everyone deserves the right to live their lives to the fullest with a healthy body and mind. I make it a point to participate in local and state activities to fight stigma and expand awareness and acceptance of mental illness and substance use as diseases.
