I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I am eager to empower, guide you and support you towards your healing journey.
I GET IT…
I get what it’s like to live in a state of fear, helplessness and hopelessness. I know that a worried mind and hopeless heart, leads to restless nights, panic, and little hope for a better tomorrow. I understand that caring for yourself when you feel like your world is falling apart, can feel out of reach. I see how past wounds can continue to haunt the present moment. I recognize that getting help is not easy and it’s unfamiliar. Since I am aware of all this, I wholeheartedly applaud you for taking the first step in caring for yourself and seeking assistance. I know this therapy stuff works and because I do, I know as a team, we can get you to breakthrough your breakdown.

WHY CHOOSE ME AS YOUR TRUSTED CLINICIAN
I have worked with many individuals who have been on the more mild side of anxiety, depression and trauma to the more extreme side. Having been exposed to a wide range of symptoms, has motivated me to continue my learning and growth as a clinician so we can effectively learn ways to manage and stop repeating the cycle that leads to debilitation. I have successfully helped those with more mild to moderate symptoms, reduce their symptoms as quick as 8-10 sessions. Although this isn’t the reality for all, it doesn’t mean healing and recovery is not possible. It will depend on your motivation, effort, consistency and engagement to take in the material, education and tools I provide. I have completed several trainings and read a wide range of material that allows me to develop tools unique to your needs. These will at many times develop as we speak, which means that you are receiving new tools and insights tailored to YOU. I will help you build your insight and awareness, help you feel comfortable with intense emotions and make the necessary behavioral changes needed to successfully stabilize your mood. My passion to help you breakthrough your breakdown, keeps me motivated to remain in a learning mindset so you absorb all the hard work I put in behind the scenes.
Contact me today, if you feel that I may be a great fit for your needs.
