I am all about AUTHENTICITY.
In session, we keep it real. You want to drop F bombs in session? Do it!
You want to scream, cry, punch a pillow? Do it!
Something to know about my approach is:
You can say what you need to say and feel how you need to feel without fear of judgment. As your therapist, I will be fully engaged in your treatment. I will provide active listening and help you identify destructive thought patterns.
Together, we will:
identify the root cause to get a better understanding of the "why." Once that is determined, we can work together to not only learn how to cope with past and current symptoms but heal and work towards a happier, more productive life.
I specialize in working with people who:
I grew up in the foster care system.
After graduating with my masters degree in social work, I became a care manager for kids removed from their homes.
Throughout my career I have advocated for the most vulnerable in our society.
I became a therapist because:
I have experienced my own trauma and have learned to develop healthy ways to overcome difficult life obstacles.
I can help you do the same.
Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:
20 years of experience.
