I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works with families, teenagers, young adults, and adults. I support clients who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, life transitions, sexual orientation and gender identity, family concerns, or traumatic experiences. I strongly value the importance of teaching my clients skills: communication skills to improve relationships, coping skills to deal with overwhelming emotions, and problem solving skills to help navigate complicated situations.
I make it a priority to build a strong rapport with my clients so they feel safe and comfortable during our time together. I know seeing a therapist can be overwhelming and uncomfortable for many people. I have a very easy going personality and use my sense of humor to help you feel more at ease. My overall goal is that you leave with a sense of hope and knowing that life can get better. We will work towards getting you in a better place where you feel happy, healthy, and safe.
I have over ten years of experience as a high school social worker. In this role I have been an advocate for my students and their families in times of need. I am also keenly aware of the daily stressors that come with being a teenager in today’s society and how difficult it can be to navigate your way through everyday life. I have extensive knowledge of Individual Education Plans and 504 Plans. I also have strong experience working with parents of adolescents and helping them work through the challenges of raising an adolescent in today’s society.
As a Mom I have come to realize how hard it can be raising children and parenting all while not losing sight of your marriage. Lets face it, family dynamics can be messy! I help clients to reconnect as a family and build one another up.
When I’m not at work you will most likely find me with my husband and three little ones that are very active and love being outside regardless of the weather! I also love to bake, pretend that I’m crafty, watch mindless TV, exercise, and spend time with my girlfriends! I’m always up for a fun adventures and I love to travel and try new things.
