I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (SW11202) and have been working in the mental health industry in excess of 20 years. My diverse professional background includes working in community mental health, residential treatment, and a private practice while providing individual, family, and group therapy sessions. My belief in the power of change when clients are willing and open to the possibility has been affirmed through my years working as a psychotherapist and counselor. I have dedicated my practice to helping children, adolescents and adults radically transform their lives by helping them overcome barriers and develop the tools necessary to solve life stressors so that they may achieve their fundamental happiness.
I specialize in the treatment of substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship and eating disorder issues; however, I work with individuals from many backgrounds regarding a variety of issues. My patients enjoy a safe, caring environment where they feel comfortable discussing their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. I approach therapy with warmth, attentive listening, and the use of humor when appropriate. I am fairly direct in my approach and get to the heart of the matter quickly. Paramount to my approach is to focus on your resources and strengths in order to bring about the positive changes that will improve your relationships within yourself and others thereby, leading you to a more satisfying life.
