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.
