Social Worker, Licensed Clinical (LCSW)

Change is difficult, but it is possible and it can be exciting. I work with people to help them identify the changes they want to make and support them as they make the journey toward their goals. I use a variety of approaches, adapting them to what is most helpful for the individual. I am direct yet gentle and I will challenge you to trust yourself. I strongly believe that living in the moment is one of the most helpful tools that we have available to us along with learning to quiet our fears, developing good emotional boundaries with others, and being able to identify what is our "stuff" vs. what is the "stuff" of others. Several books I recommend are Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach, Emotional Vampires by Albert Bernstein, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by John Gottman, and Codependent No More by Melodie Beatty. They explore issues that are common to many of us.
