About Me

Specialties: Mood disorders, anxiety, ADHD, and trauma I approach my work with clients from a psychodynamic perspective, assists with developing concrete "rubber meets the road" skills, and is certified to use a mind/body therapy to treat trauma, as well as trained to practice EMDR. Making the decision to start therapy is a big deal. But for therapy to work, it's important to find the right therapist who can help you get from where you are in your life now to where you'd like to be. The right "fit" matters. My approach is to partner with you to navigate the difficult life experiences and relational patterns that get in the way of where you'd like to be. Even if you don't know exactly where that is yet, but know you're not there - that's something we can work on discovering together. I check in with you each time we meet to make sure our work fits with what matters to you. We go at a pace that matches you. We focus on your strengths and help you develop effective and doable self-care and inter-personal skills that raise your capacity to function at higher levels. Therapy can help you weather the storms when you're overwhelmed by life circumstances, and it can also help you optimize your mindset to feel your best: connected, authentic, and vibrant. I have over 15 years of experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) that includes working with infants and their caregivers, young children and adolescents, and adults. I've been in private practice working with adult professionals, as well providing forensic assessments and treatment for Victims of Crime. I've also worked with families in the Child Welfare System and with inmates in State Correctional facilities. Certifications: OEI (Observed Experiential Integration), a physiological approach to treating trauma. PST (Problem Solving Treatment), an evidence-based medical model to treat depression and anxiety.
