As a social worker, I’ve spent the past 9 years working with people impacted by abuse, childhood trauma, violent relationships, drug addiction, and other issues that often times people don’t like to talk about. I began my career working in child and adult protection, and then moved on to obtain my LCSW while working in a community mental health center. For the past three years I have worked in a private practice setting, providing therapy in office as well as online. I’ve learned that many times, our most significant growth occurs as a result of sharing our feelings, learning to cope with challenges that occur in life, and the stress that often accompanies change. My goal as your therapist will be to empower you to heal and move forward from any past emotional wounds and cope with any current life difficulties, so that you are able to live life to the fullest!
