I am an Advanced Practice Social Worker (APSW) that works with adolescents, adults, and couples in individual and group therapy. Supporting individuals as they navigate all of life’s challenges is truly an honor for me. I firmly believe that individuals are their own best experts on their lives. As a therapist, I consider it is my job to help them discover their own unique path and be the best version of themselves. I use a variety of evidence based therapies such as cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness, and trauma informed care to draw on each individual’s strengths and help them achieve positive change in their life.

Being a therapist is not just a job for me, it is integral to who I am as a person. I truly believe in the potential of people to change, heal, and grow; and I understand firsthand how important it is to have support along the way. I am extremely passionate about equity, social justice, and trauma informed care; and carry that lens with me in all of my work. My specialities include working with at risk adolescents, couples, the LGBTQ population, and the Spanish speaking population.

I have specialized in the field of addiction, serving a diverse population, for over twenty years, working diligently to address the underlying issues such as: stress, depression, anxiety, trauma and feelings of being overwhelmed.

Overcoming my own struggles combined with my life experience has been my best teacher and motivated me, at a late age, to return to school to earn a Masters in Counseling Psychology.

My primary strategy is helping the clients to get out of the problem and into the solution. As a counselor, I utilize CBT and DBT as a way of becoming more mindful of one’s thoughts, emotions and behaviors by keeping thought logs; learning and practicing skills of mindfulness emotional regulation and Distress Tolerance, all of which are helpful in reducing anxiety and stress and overall coping with life.

I also have worked several years with adolescents experiencing substance use disorders; men experiencing relationship and personal issues; and both men and women with various issues and dilemmas.

Your life is a journey. Do Not allow your past to predict your future. I understand you may be tired, scared, and ashamed; but you have the ability to pick yourself up and seize this moment…right here…right now. You are not alone; I will walk beside you on this new path to recovery and healing. My therapeutic approach is one that is person centered, strength based, and solution focused. My goal as your therapist is to have you leave treatment knowing that you are a survivor, not a victim and that you are in this game of life to win.

I have specialized training in working with individuals with Trauma, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), and AODA (Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse) backgrounds. Being licensed as a school counselor, substance abuse counselor and profession counselor I have had the opportunity to work with children and adults alike in various settings such as in public and private schools, and most recently at Rogers Memorial Hospital in their residential and partial hospitalization programs.

When treating patients I prefer to take a balanced and structured approach of active listening/motivational interviewing, solution focused treatment, and interventions that focus on how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected through utilizing approaches such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and Schema Therapy.

I understand that each and every patient is unique in what they find helpful and meaningful to their treatment, so I believe in being flexible and adapting my therapeutic approach to each patients individual needs.

I am an Advanced Practice Social Worker (APSW) that works with adolescents, adults, and couples in individual and group therapy. Supporting individuals as they navigate all of life’s challenges is truly an honor for me. I firmly believe that individuals are their own best experts on their lives. As a therapist, I consider it is my job to help them discover their own unique path and be the best version of themselves. I use a variety of evidence based therapies such as cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness, and trauma informed care to draw on each individual’s strengths and help them achieve positive change in their life.

Being a therapist is not just a job for me, it is integral to who I am as a person. I truly believe in the potential of people to change, heal, and grow; and I understand firsthand how important it is to have support along the way. I am extremely passionate about equity, social justice, and trauma informed care; and carry that lens with me in all of my work. My specialities include working with at risk adolescents, couples, the LGBTQ population, and the Spanish speaking population.
