Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Environment is everything and understanding a client’s environment contributes greatly to the work we can do together. As a clinician, it is my goal to provide a safe, comforting, and encouraging environment for personal growth. I work from a strengths-based model to highlight the various systems in a client’s life and work to address the needs and concerns of that individual.
I specialize in working with people going through transitions that might be stressful, and I have experience working with sexual assault survivors, both men and women. The journey of addressing trauma can be hard, and I am happy and honored to be a supportive person along my client’s journey. In my work, I utilize techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, person-centered, and strengths-based perspectives, and I work to address the client’s needs and help facilitate a plan to live a more successful life.
Areas that I typically work with include life transitions, depression, anxiety, trauma, sexual assault, PTSD, domestic violence, and adjusting to parenthood and women’s issues.
