I know that seeking help is often a difficult decision whether it's for yourself or your loved one. I commend you on your choice to strive for a healthier life. It is important to me that I provide an accepting, comforting environment that allows you to feel safe when discussing difficult topics. As a social worker, I am very client-focused. You are the expert in your life and I want to join with you to enhance your strengths and prepare for a brighter future. 

I specialize in trauma, PTSD, brain injury, personality disorders, chronic pain, depression, anxiety and grief/loss. I enjoy working with a diverse population. I  am knowledgeable in working with children/adolescents who have ADHD, behavioral issues, attachment, neurological disorders, and self-harm. I am trained in EMDR, TF-CBT, DBT and use a wide range of techniques. I enjoy working with young children, teens, families & couples. 

When working with children, I utilize play/therapeutic art in my practice to assist children in working through the feelings they are unable to talk about. I am knowledgeable about IEPs and 504s and can assist in issues related to school as I know this can be a very overwhelming and frustrating process.
