I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and am currently working on a grief counseling certificate from the American Academy of Grief Counseling. I practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and I integrate mindfulness into my practice. I believe that everyone has the power to change and improve their life, sometimes we just lack the tools that we need and that is where I can help! Social workers view the person in the environment and sometimes what we struggle with is living in a world or culture that devalues who we are and does not accept us.
I believe that mental health treatment should focus on whatever is bothering you - not things that are not actually issues for you like being non-binary, trans, polyamorous or nonmonogamous, LGBTQ, or agnostic, atheist, or religion other than Christian. If it's not a problem for you, it's not a problem we focus on in therapy, PERIOD!
