“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”-E.E. Cummings
Often clients come to me after having negative experiences in therapy in which they have felt either judged or misunderstood or it’s their first time calling a therapist and they hold a lot of anxiety about the process. I provide a counseling environment where clients feel heard, valued, and truly accepted. I believe that a client’s own unique strengths and insight, along with my guidance, can provide the tools needed to achieve personal goals and help clients BECOME who they want to be.
I am a board certified clinical social worker (LCSW-C) with over 20 years of clinical experience and training. I enjoy working with individuals and couples with a passion for and expertise with the LGBTQ+ community and intimate relationships of all kinds.
Finding the right fit between therapist and client is essential. Clients working with me often express a sense that we are working as a team and appreciate my warm, engaging, and interactive style.
I steer away from a “one-size fits all” approach and apply an eclectic range of theories and modalities tailored to the needs of my clients.
