EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been providing therapy to various client populations in several different settings for over 14 years. I have assisted clients in overcoming many obstacles and issues, including mental health problems like anxiety, depression, and trauma; substance abuse and chemical dependency; domestic violence; as well as relationship problems. I work with individuals and couples. My approach is person-centered/client-directed; strengths-based; outcome-informed, feedback-informed, and trauma-informed; as well as solution-focused. I am continuing professional development through training. I treat "the whole person," and take an integrated approach. I am very mindful of outcomes and elicit feedback from clients at the beginning and end of every session in regards to their progress in different life areas, and their satisfaction with the therapy services being provided. I have received extensive addiction training and am EMDR certified. My schedule is quite flexible, and I am willing and able to work with clients' schedules. I collaborate well with other service providers and am very knowledgeable about community resources available nearby that could further assist the client. I would be happy to speak with you and answer any questions. I offer a sliding scale for out-of-pocket clients.
